In 1866, the Jack Daniels distillery received its license in the state of Tennessee to produce what has become the most famous southern sipping whiskey. This National Historic Site is located in the little town near a natural spring. Guided tours of the facility are offered daily. Combine your visit to the distillery with a walk through downtown Lynchburg; it features additional historic sites and several souvenir shops. If you go in September, join in the celebration of the city's founder in the downtown square. While enjoying the tour of the distillery, be careful not to sample the product. Oddly enough, this county is dry and the consumption of alcohol is illegal!
