Hendersonville is on Old Hickory Lake, a man-made lake which is perhaps only 35 years old.
All the regular lake amenities abound--there are several marinas.
Lots of history here--"Rock Castle" is one of the area's oldest homes--dating to the 1700's. There are cultural events held there several times per year.
Another old home is a private residence along Station Camp Creek at the corner of Saundersville Road (You may look at the house from the road, but don't go in the driveway!).
Trinity Broadcast Network (TBN) has one of its big compounds in Hendersonville. If you're into televangelists, you must stop here.
There are many nice homes to look at--many belonging to Country Music celebrities, and several companies in nearby Nashville offer driving tours of these neighborhoods.
Don't miss the shopping--Hendersonville is a little town with little to offer, but as such things are, our little stores are unique, and worth the visit.
Don't forget to eat at the Mason Jar (meat-n-two, Blue Goose Cafe(awesome cheeseburgers), and Jimmy's Pizza (ask Jimmy for a Gyros Pizza).
Hendersonville, Tennessee, is a city located Northeast of Nashville.
Its population is about 35,000 persons, and income is typically above the national average (mine, sadly, is not).
There is nothing really fantastic about Hendersonville. There is no amusement park or revolving restaurant.

Future is promising
The City is currently planning a nice lakeside shopping strip and greenway.
Their goal is to attract shoppers from Nashville and other surrounding areas by building a nice center filled with boutiques and eclectic shops.
I hope their planning goes well, and they find excellent stores and restaurants to move in there.
Hendersonville has a lot of potential, but it will take a lot of good decisions on the parts of the City, Businesses, and Community.
Hendersonville is home to many celebrities, mostly having to do with country music.
- Pros:Picturesque, quiet, safe, large lake, many parks, good shopping, dining, celebrity homes
- Cons:Not a high level of "excitement" for thrill-seekers, unless you're on the lake
In the Winter months, it's worth a relaxing drive to look at Christmas lights. Lights are very popular here, and, in... more travel advice
