Go to this park on a sunny day and you can walk, and see and read about the history of Nashville. And, next door there is a "flea market" which is fun to walk through.....

Outstanding accumulation of the history of Tennessee. Highly recommend reading all of the information on the Bicentennial wall. It may take 1 1/2 - 2 1/2 hours to read. Many details are surprising.
