Step out from your Normandy Inn and travel trough the winding roads to reach George Dickel's Distillery. Getting here itself will be a memorable experience. The Distillery will give you a chance to experience the complete whiskey making process. The old plant was ruined and the existing one was built in 1958. As it is located in a 'dry neighborhood', tasting is prohibited. You can still buy whiskey at the George Dickel's General Store. You will find a variety of souvenirs as well; the shot glasses are an apt choice.

Miss Mary Bobo's Boarding House

Opened in 1905 by Miss Mary Bobo, the eatery is now operated by Jack Daniel's great-grandniece, Lynn Tolley. The southern style cooking served with dabs of warmth is what makes this place so special.
