Nashville is well known as the home of the Grand Ole Opry, the oldest running radio program in the U.S. The program moved from Ryman Auditorium to the Grand Ole Opry House. The House is accompanied by the Opryland USA theme park (now closed), the Opry Mills Mall, and the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center, the largest non-gambling hotel in North America.

Nashville operates 99 parks. Centennial Park is the most visited. It is recognized for holding a full scale model of the Athenian Parthenon. The Parthenon was built for the 1897 Tennessee Centennial and is the only structure still remaining from the festival.
