This is the closest to our house, so we tend to go to matinees. Have not seen a night movie in years. Usually clean and efficient.
All the popular movies are here but we miss the small artsy ones. We must drive to Nashville for "small" movies.

For an evening excursion, my wife and I went to the Cherokee Steak House for an early dinner and took the sunset cruise. Had good conversations with the other cruisers, and learned some cool facts about the Cumberland River that we were not aware of....MoreThanks for the comments and thanks for riding!

Douglass-Clark House

The Douglass-Clark House is a historic site dedicated to sharing the multifaceted history of Sumner County and its past residents. Initially built as a home for Elmore Douglass and his family around 1786, the house was jointly used as one of the county's earliest courthouses between 1788-1790. The Clark family was the next generation to occupy the house and they witnessed the declaration of the Civil War in 1861, followed by four of their own enlisting on behalf of the Confederate cause. Slavery was also deeply intertwined with the history of the Douglass-Clark House as documentation listed enslaved persons living at the property as early as 1790. We invite you to visit the Douglass-Clark House to hear the stories of those generations and reflect upon how their lives shaped our world today.

Gallatin United Methodist Church

Reviewed By DrMarc9491 - Franklin, Kentucky

While in Gallatin I made a stop at the Gallatin United Methodist Church located on West Main Street. The staff was very nice and allowed me the opportunity to spend time in the sanctuary. The pews, organ and stain glass windows are just beautiful. Over the years, the church as gone through some renovations and it just lovely.
The church has a rich history of going back into the 1800’s. Bring your camera and if possible take a service here. You will be refreshed.

Farmer Brown's Produce & General Store

Reviewed By DrMarc9491 - Franklin, Kentucky

While driving through the country-side taking photos of old barns, horses, and rolling hills I happened upon Farmer Brown’s Produce and General Store. I followed the road signs and they lead me to lovely home and long driveway. I thought I was in the wrong place until I saw the general store located at the back of the property.

I decided to take a peek. I drove to the store location and entered the front door. I was met by the owners with a broad smile and friendly hello. If you like homemade food items, this is a must stop. Here is just a listing of some of the things they offer: Jams, Jellies, Homemade Sour Dough Bread, Fresh Pies, Cookies, Cakes, Candy, Produce Butter, Zucchini Bread and the list goes on.

I bought Peanut Brittle and it was wonderful. If you are in the area this is a fun place to visit.

We recently had our 25th wedding anniversary celebrated at this lovely venue. We coordinated this event with Bobbie Lee Wootten, who oversees the venue, as well as catered our special event. Bobbie Lee, made sure that we had everything that we needed. The staff was truly amazing and did a fabulous job of meeting the requests and needs of our family and friends. We wanted to be sure that our guests had a memorable evening filled with great food, and fellowship. The menu was perfect, the food delicious. Everything was well prepared and seasoned to perfection. I would highly recommend this venue, along with the catering services for anyone's celebration. A big shout out to Fred, who prepared the meal, Sarah who was our bartender and the rest of the staff who served us well! To Bobbie thanks for providing us with tremendous service!

Calico Jack's Boat & RV

Reviewed By yessamme - Houston, Texas

I called Calico Jacks about four days before I was going to rent and Brandi took my contact and deposit details and then emailed directions and rental guidelines.
The day of our rental the owner Mike greeted me at the Gallatin Marina dock, he has a small hut on his private dock. He was sweeping out a pontoon boat when I arrived. He had me review paperwork, i initialed and signed. Then we reviewed some boating basics and he made sure I understood how to operate the boat. The boat was a 2008 Premier 23 foot (showing normal wear and tear) with a 115hp motor.
We had different family members on the boat during the day but never more than nine at a time. It was a great day on the water, everything operated fine. Everyone especially loved getting towed on a tube behind the boat. Throughout the day we were able to cruise at a speed of 18-20 miles per hour, when I filled up the gas tank at the end of the day there at Gallatin Marina we had used 25 gallons.
Mike says he gets a lot of referrals out of Nashville. Mike also sells new and used boats in middle Tennessee and Kentucky.
We will rent again.
