If shopping is your interest, the downtown area features many antique shops in which to browse and find treasures. Also, is a stop along the World’s Longest Yard Sale (in August) and Antique Alley (in May) that draw thousands of shoppers to the area.
Throughout the year, it is a place of fun and entertainment. There are festivals throughout the year that celebrate the history of the town, the music of the mountains, and the seasons of the year. Young and old come out to fellowship and enjoy the spirit of the town as friends and neighbors become a community.
And finally, if you are interested in the big city life, we are just a hop, skip, and a jump from several major metropolitan areas with their fine dining and evenings out. In less than 2 hours you can enjoy The Tennessee Aquarium in Chattanooga or tour NASA’s Space Museum in Huntsville or shop at The Summit, one of Birmingham’s upscale shopping centers. All close enough to visit for the day and then return to the peaceful and relaxing life in our small town.
