The Unique Town Near Nashville That’s Anything But Ordinary
Watertown, Tennessee is probably one of our favorite places to visit. It’s small, welcoming, and exudes a southern charm that you simply can’t get outside the state. A tourist destination and tiny town delight all in one, Watertown takes the proverbial cake. Let’s go for a visit, shall we?
Watertown makes itself at home about 40 miles east of Nashville. You can see here their downtown business district, of which all buildings are considered historical.
The Tennessee Central Railway Museum hosts a series of train excursions, of which many pop on out to Watertown. It's a couple of hours on a historic train, and if you go during the summer you can visit during their Jazz Festival. It's one of the neat events the town is known for.
The Stardust Drive-In is one of the most common reasons for a visit to Watertown. It's a perfect date spot, and great for a group of friends or kids that would just LOVE to hang out in the back of the pickup.
Nona Lisa Pizzeria is the town pizza hub - and we get it. We understand why. You don't want to make a trip out to Watertown without a solid visit. Located at 208 E Main Street, you can't miss it.
At the time of the last census, there were a little less than 1,500 folks living in the city. Just enough to give a solid infusion of young and old - and to plan EPIC seasonal festivals. They just had their annual Christmas parade, and it was perfect.
Here you can see the First Baptist Church of Watertown, and it looks big enough to swallow the city. Don't you think?
You can't really see it here, but although the square has been replaced downtown, the streetlights are fashioned to take on an old-timey look and feel. Pretty neat, right? Watertown holds its history tight and melds it perfectly with modern day.
What a neat little place. What a sweet, homey little spot. And let us not forget - the people. Watertown folk are good, kind people. They'd do anything for you.
Best little place around. We’re completely in love… If you’re looking for somewhere else to visit in Tennessee during the wintertime, check out this
