Dickson County, Tennessee Attractions

Dickson County, Tennessee Attractions
Dickson County is located in the north central part of the state, approximately 30 miles west of Nashville. Carved out of the rolling hills and farmlands of middle Tennessee, this picturesque area blends memories of its past with hopes of the future aptly. Old-timers treat visitors to stories on the town square of Charlotte and sidewalks of Dickson. Take a break and have a hometown meal at one of the local cafes or a tea party at the tea room in Dickson.
