Located right along the Cumberland River, with an agreeable climate and plenty of activities to do in and around the area, it is easy to understand why The Music City is a desirable place. True there is live music all over town and Broadway is an extremely fun place to go out at night, we have shown below some of the best parts of the city for an outdoor party.
A short 10 minute walk from downtown sits the preeminent park in Nashville proper, Centennial Park. The huge amphitheater gets used for musical events but the real attraction is the full scale replica of the Parthenon in Athens, Greece. They have plenty of free space to use in their 132 acres. They have sports courts to rent but no pavilions for parties.
