    State Capitol

    by Astrobuck Written Feb 16, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Although I have never been inside, the Tennessee State Capitol has many things around the grounds. James K. Polk, the 11th Predisent of the US is buried here. The Mall area is across the street, and the State Museum is about a block away.

    The Belle Meade Mansion

    by DrewV Updated Jun 13, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Most towns have a terrific old school antebellum mansion, but there's something about Nashville's Belle Meade Mansion that sets it apart. Maybe it's the sumptuous interior, maybe it's the trees and stable... anyway, it's a fantastic place to get a bit of history.

    The neighborhood around the mansion is Belle Meade, one of the five richest cities per capita in America. If you get a chance, drive along Belle Meade Boulevard, "the Boulevard" to locals, and see the massive houses sheltering Nashville's elite and privileged.

    At the far end, the Boulevard dead ends into...

    Bicentennial Mall State Park

    by Blueump Written Aug 26, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This place is awesome, and most importantly...FREE! The day was extremly hot and the kids (even the big ones) enjoyed playing in the Rivers of Tennessee Fountains. The 31 vertical fountains shoot water into the air without warning making them both exciting and refreshing. Along the west side of the park the history of Tennesee is displayed on a 1400 ft. granite wall (timeline). One of the highlights along the wall includes the fabulous WWII 'floating' globe which you can turn, stop, and spin again in your own direction, with some effort. At the north end of the park you will find the bell towers with 95 bells. At the top of every hour, the bells play 'Tennessee Songs' to represent Tennessee's musical heritage. We also found the east side of the park quite interesting with plants and trees from all parts of the state.

    On the side from the Court is organ located in a small cabin. This is a place from where bells are directed by computer and where the melodies are stored.

    This is a great place to soak up some history, learn about President Andrew Jackson, picnic, and walk through some beautiful scenery. Allow about 2 hours to see it all.
