Guys Getaway

Breakfast with no-fuss, Choppin’ Block serves generous portions of traditional American fare. The butcher shop also offers the finest meats, all cut to order, if you want to snag some steaks or seafood for grilling later. Silke’s Old World Breads offers a hearty German meat-and-cheese plate breakfast, along with plenty of sweet treats.

Tee up for 18 holes at Swan Lake Golf Course, Eastland Green or The River Club…maybe all three. 

From Eastland Green, grab a hearty lunch at Sweet P’s Southern Style for a classic meat-and-three, or swing in Golly G’s hand-churned ice cream or milkshake and other baked goods. The River Club offers a restaurant on-site. Downtown, find an old-fashioned burger and fries, fried chicken sandwiches or honey bun and cream at Johnny’s Big Burger across from APSU. Fresh beef on the grill just like it has been since 1965.

If shooting is your preferred sport, countless options are in store on the 126-acre Montgomery County Shooting Complex. Choose between sporting clays, trap, skeet, five-stand, tactical pistol ranges, 3-D archers, dynamic steel rifle/pistol ranges, long range rifle and more. Or, Cross Creek Clays is a premier shotgun destination nestled in the rolling hills of Palmyra with three 16-station sporting courses for shooters of all abilities and a beautiful rustic clubhouse.

Other ideas for outdoor adventure include the North Ford St. Mountain Bike Trail, a 9-mile run or bike ride along the Greenway, Disc Golf at Rotary Park or rock climbing at King’s Bluff.

Take in a tour and tastings at Old Glory Distilling. This small batch, grass-to-grain distillery offers Old Glory Tennessee Vodka, Smooth Shine and Jumper’s Stash White Rum and Premium Tennessee Whiskey.

Dinner and brews and Blackhorse Pub and Brewery downtown will serve up just what you need to finish the day. You’ll find fresh brewed, handcrafted beer paired with gourmet pizza, pastas and some man-appetite burgers. 

Walk a couple of blocks and hang out at Upstairs at Strawberry Alley for more house brews, games and fun. Sample other local breweries at Star Spangled Brewing, specializing in small batch, high gravity beers and root beer; Tennessee Valley Brewing offers a cozy atmosphere with hand-crafted tables and bar-tops. Evill Nash prides itself on a passion for high-quality ales and lagers and King’s Bluff Brewery offers live music, comedy and movie nights with their stouts and IPAs.  At The Thirsty Goat, revel in the craft beer garden, artisan coffee shop, and a place to gather all rolled into one.
