Take in Scenic Tennessee on this Lakeside of The Smokies Tour!

This adventure is chalked-full of history, scenic views, and short out and back interpretive walks through the historic downtowns of Sevierville and Dandridge, Tennessee! Dandridge, the second oldest town in Tennessee, was founded in 1783 and named after Martha Dandridge Washington, the First U.S. First Lady. Dandridge is nestled alongside Douglas Lake, with its mountain views and spectacular sunsets. Look out for the Dolly Parton statue, a stop at Bush Beans Visitors Center and its General Store and Museum, and shopping in the towns country stores. Have a snack at Tinsley Bible Drug Store, established in 1911, 111 years later still serving up great milkshakes and more. Hangout and learn the vast history with Dandridge’s town historian (Bob Jarnagin) as we visit historic sites and learn the vast history of this quaint town.

Then, it’s off to a scenic overlook to take in breathtaking views of the English Mountains rising behind Douglas Lake. From there, enjoy bird watching below Douglas Dam, then watch a spectacular sunset from Dandridge Dock while learning about the lake’s history, before returning back to your accommodation or point of pickup!
