Bicentennial State Park gives a nod to Tennessee's historic legacy. This park is located just blocks away from downtown Nashville, and it holds the WWII veterans' memorial. Visitors are invited to splash in the fountains, and stroll down a walkway that honors every county in TN. There's a 200-foot granite map of the state, and the aforementioned area that commemorates each of the state's major waterways--31 vertical fountains in all. During the summer months, the amphitheater features live performances. This is an ideal time to kick back, have a snack, and let the music transform your day or evening. If you just want to relax, listen to music, and get away from the hustle and bustle of city life, Bicentennial State Park is the place to be.
