Visitors to Dandridge are always impressed with the historic preservation and the quaintness of the town. Restaurants and shops line the downtown streets, and Douglas Lake provides the perfect recreational and scenic option for family vacations. Guided walking tours of the historic district can be arranged for groups by contacting the Visitor Center.
Begin your day in Dandridge with a stop at the Visitor Center. There, you can obtain information about shopping, dining, events, and recreation.
Information is also available outside the Visitor's Center when the center is closed.
The Hickman Coach House, built circa 1820, is located directly beside the Hickman Tavern (now Town Hall). This narrow, brick, two-story structure was built for stagecoach operators traveling between Knoxville and Abingdon, Virginia, and on to “Washington City." The Hickman Coach House is now home to the Dandridge Visitor Center. The Visitor Center is operated by paid and volunteer staff, open Monday through Friday from 10 AM--3 PM and during special events and festivals.
