Area Destinations

Come and enjoy the wide variety of attractions in store around Dale Hollow Lake. If you enjoy culture, you’ll love taking in the plays and musicals staged by The Good Neighbors Theater (an all-volunteer organization in Pickett County) or by Cumberland County Playhouse (one of the most active regional performing arts centers in rural America).

If you’re into history, be sure to visit Cordell Hull Birthplace & Museum State Park to learn all about the Father of the United Nations.  Visitors can also enjoy Pickett CCC Memorial State Park  (known for its geological, botanical, and scenic wonders) or see the birthplace and home of Alvin C. York (the most decorated World War I soldier). Civil War buffs can enjoy The Borderlands Foundation Museum and see where the first military action in Tennessee took place at Travisville.

If you want to be transported even further back in time, visit Historic Rugby (a restored Victorian village founded in 1880) and Muddy Pond, a Mennonite community whose members still make their own molasses, leather goods, quilts, crafts, food and much more.

Golf enthusiasts will enjoy the world-class Stonehenge golf course while hikers and bikers will revel in our many state parks, recreation areas, natural areas and rivers. End the day at Highland Manor Winery, which offers free tours and tastings daily.
