I've lived here for three long years, and let me tell you.... this place is great, for retirement.
Every teenager around here will agree with me when I say, there is nothing to do here. The Kids Kingdom park is fun. It's got slides. It's got sand. It's got swings. It's got everything kids could want... I'm pretty sure it's not kids that take road trips though, so if you are a grown adult, don't expect much except for a pretty view of the water fountain and the lake.
In the Winter months, it's worth a relaxing drive to look at Christmas lights. Lights are very popular here, and, in some subdivisions, it seems everyone has lights up. Of course, some other subdivisions do nothing at all.
I put up a ton of lights this Christmas (Dec 2005)--10,000 bulbs, wow!
Even so, the display looked sparse. But then again, I put the lights up here and there across probably five acres of land.
Just 3 miles away is the largest display in Hendersonville--it's at Trinity Broadcast Network (yeah, those freaks on TV). They light up the holidays as a continuation of a tradition begun by country music legend Conway Twitty, who used to own the compound til his death.
Anyway, there are lots of lights to see in Hendersonville, then still larger displays in nearby Nashville.

Meet old friends tonight in the bar at Woody's Steakhouse, and had a wonderful time. We had a Bostonian in the group so we sat in the bar and watched the Patriots and the Saints play. The steak I had may have been the best ribeye I have ever eaten. The mood in the place was very laid back. It was a great time.
Favorite Dish: The ribeye with the Woody's Potato was awesome.
This is a typical sports bar with attached restaurant. Generally, I go to the bar and order food so I can watch the people.
The food is particularly good, in my opinion. I don't drink a lot, but I go there for the food a couple times a month.
Favorite Dish: My favorites here:
Nachos. They come Loaded. Meat, tons of cheese, sour cream, and jalapeno's if you want them.
French Dip sandwich. Above average. Not real big, but the price isn't, either. Very tasty!
Prime rib sandwich. Similar to French Dip, but cooked the way you prefer. I think this is better than the french dip.
I've been here once with family. It's probably the only place in Hendersonville that I would say actually has atmosphere to it. Although they might be pricey, considering the fact that this is a redneck town but they don't use redneck ingredients i.e. pizza is made with sauce, not ketchup, then I give this place some props. It's also a differently designed building. It's like a sublevel where part of it is built into the ground, but part of it is above ground. The inside is very clean and dim lit *great place to go as a couple with no kids* The food is rich, so no need to order two of everything just to get full.
Dress Code: N/A
I like this place. I come here to get vitamins. The lady, Ginger, that works here is very friendly and it's a nice little home feel to it. Although it's not the major corporation chain of vitamin stores, this place is friendly and has some different items that the major bull$h!t chain stores don't have.... herbal deodarants, make-up, insences, and samples up the @$$.
What to buy: It's all variant upon what you want to buy and what for, but Ginger knows her herbs. I give her props on that. Just pick up conversation with her about what you might want vitamins or herbs for, and she can hook you up.
What to pay: It's a little bit more expensive than the chain stores, but for the friendly approach thats also not scary and cloned, it's worth it.
