It’s always great to be able to get away with some of your besties and if you’re looking for the perfect place to go with your gal pals, Historic Jonesborough’s got plenty to keep you entertained and busy!
How you kick off your R&R time in Jonesborough has lot to do with the kind of mood you and your friends are in … do you want to shop first, be pampered, eat, head to the water park or take a tour?
Shopping is generally pretty close to the top of the list and for good reason – there are all sorts of great places that are locally owned and operated. If you’re looking to add a few things to your closet there are some cool boutiques and some amazing one-of-a-kind gifts – who wouldn’t love handmade jewelry – and crafts (handmade quilt, anyone?). If you’re into art, there are wonderful little galleries and if antiques are your weakness you’re going to be over the moon in Jonesborough.
All that shopping makes a girl hungry and it doesn’t matter what you and your friends are craving, there are some delicious dining options. Whether it’s gourmet food you’re after, sandwiches, soups, salads, desserts, there are plenty of choices in the downtown area.
Want to walk off that scrumptious food? How about a guided tour of Tennessee’s oldest town? If you’re feeling a little tired, a carriage tour is another great choice as is horseback riding. Another jewel you won’t want to miss is the Chester Inn State Historic Site and Museum.
If your friends are looking for some evening entertainment you can take in a show at the Jonesborough Repertory Theater, enjoy some tunes at Music on the Square, do a little dancing or listen to some riveting tales at the Jonesborough Storytellers Guild.
After a long, fun-filled day, you’ll love heading back to the historic Chester Inn or any of the other exceptional lodging choices, where you may want to set up a massage or enjoy the hot tub or pool. Speaking of water, if you really want to let down your hair, a trip to Wetlands Water Park is a must!
Jonesborough has everything you and your friends will need in order to enjoy the perfect bonding experience. It’ll be such an ideal time that you and your girlfriends will be putting this trip on your calendar every year!
