The Bicentennial Mall is one of Nashville’s premiere tourist destinations. During this walking tour, you’ll experience a performance of the Tennessee Carillon, stroll down the Walkway of Counties, visit the 200-feet wide map of the state, and learn about our State Capitol building. Our tour ends with a trip down the Pathway of History, where you’ll learn how this state developed, hear about the sit-in protests during the Civil Rights era, and visit a World War II memorial. Along the way, you’ll learn about the history of Tennessee and Nashville.
You’ll also get a sense of how the Bicentennial Mall is a representation of all things Tennessee, from its beauty, to its people, and its music. After all, the park was designed to celebrate our state and the pride we take in it. Dedicated in 1996 on the 200th anniversary of statehood, this magnificent park, an extension of the State Capitol, is one of the most historical spots in Nashville. I hope you’ll share the joy that is Tennessee with me by the end of the tour.
