Tucked amid the Great Smoky Mountains, Dandridge, Tennessee is ready
to welcome you home. Its small town spirit, scenic lakeshore and
charming historic downtown is a world away from the major resort
destinations nearby, making Dandridge the quintessential Southern
Appalachian frontier town you’ve always wanted to experience.
Visitors will be amazed by how much of Dandridge’s downtown historic
district has been restored. Its historic County Courthouse and museum,
early 19th-century taverns and Revolutionary War-era graveyard infuse
Dandridge’s streets with historical significance. Antique shops,
galleries like the Gass General Store, and an old-fashioned sofa
fountain, the Tinsley-Bible Drug Company, will keep shoppers lingering
downtown for hours.
Dandridge sits on the shores of Douglas Lake, a popular playground for
water sports. The waterfront and Douglas Dike, a grassy peninsula
created by the damming of the French Broad River, is a delightful
backdrop to take in the town’s many outdoor events and festivals,
including the annual Scots-Irish celebration. Maybe you’ll be lucky
enough to catch one of its “Music on the Town” nights, when families
and friends gather downtown to enjoy food and live music under the
stars. Whatever your fancy, Dandridge is sure to delight.
