The West End neighborhood of Nashville stretches from downtown all the way to Belle Meade west of Nashville. It's highlighted by Centennial Park, Nashville’s premier urban park, as well as Vanderbilt Universities main Nashville campus. The 132-acre Centennial Park features the Parthenon, a full-scale replica of the original built in Athens Greece, multiple gardens, sidewalk trails and an art history museum. On the northern border of West End is Elliston Place, another charming neighborhood that features a number of Nashville's most beloved places including EXIT/IN a long-standing music venue and Elliston Place Soda Shop open since 1939.
