More About The Surrounding Area: Scarritt Bennett Center is a small campus with beautiful gothic-style architecture, giving you the feeling you’ve stepped back in time. The rooms and buildings are easily accessible and are pleasing in atmosphere. If you are dining off campus, 21 Ave South is literally a block away, and is home to eateries, ice-cream shops, and bars.

Broadway, the road leading to Downtown Nashville, is close by, and that’s where the evening action will be. Your choice of bars, eateries, souvenir shops—and of course, music—lines both sides of Broadway. If you want to sit by the Cumberland River, it’s at the very end!
