Day Trip to Visit Jack Daniels

This week was road trip Saturday at my house.  JK and I took a spur of the moment trip to Lynchburg, TN to tour the historic Jack Daniel's Distillery and lunch at Miss Mary Bobo's Boarding House.
Lynchburg was just over an hour trip from Nashvegas, and being the downtown city girl I am now, the ride was half the fun.  We spotted cows, barns and even had a tractor slowing us down.
We got to the heart of Lynchburg a little before noon and quickly signed up for the next available tour.  All of the tasting tours were booked for the day, but we were still able to take a non-tasting tour.  We had the best tour guide, Wes.  The process was surprisingly clean and our guide was extremely knowledgeable. 
Meet Jack!
Jack's favorite motto!
After our interesting tour, we headed down the street to Miss Mary Bobo's for a late lunch.  This southern charm has country cookin' down to an art!  Usually daily they have 2 seating's, at 11 and 1, and lunch is served family style.  They have a rotating menu, but I think we got the best one. 
Fried Chicken
Pinto Beans
Fried Okra
Baked Apples
Mac and Cheese
Roasted New Potatoes
Fudge Pie
As if that wasn't enough food, we had to stop by the Moon Pie General Store too!
There were several really cute shops on the square.  We had to take home a couple souvenirs.  Aren't these coasters and personalized bottle of Tennessee White Whiskey perfect?
I loved our Saturday and would recommend this trip to all of my friends.  The distillery hosts free tours Mon-Sat from 9-4:30.  And if you want to dine at Mary Bobo's call ahead for reservations early because they book up quickly.
