The local square has tons of quaint shops and restaurants, the Town Creek River, and ponds for fishing. Townspeople enjoy visiting the markets, touring the main square, and talking with neighbors in front of the preserved brick buildings. It's easy to travel around downtown Livingston, and a few highways run near or around town to connect it to other Upper Cumberland towns. Locals can often be seen heading to the market, running, or riding horses along the park trails and backroads.
Dining, Entertainment, & Shopping
Although Livingston is proud to be considered a small town, there are several places for recreation, amusement, and shopping. Many boutiques celebrate the traditional lifestyle in towns, such as The Antique Market and the 1806 General Store. Both shops have keepsakes and let residents purchase heirlooms to put in their own homes.
Just down the street, J D's Sandwich Shop has American classics and seating for people to congregate. After a day of exploring downtown, the best place to pull up a chair is at the patio on Back Porch Grill.
The Overton County Heritage Museum has two stories of collections that include letters people wrote during wartime, stories about famous leaders, and many photographs preserving the town's history. For more Tennessee history, Clark House is an example of what the houses looked like in the 1950s and is now open to the public.
Things to Do
Most of the historic buildings open to the public are nearby or in Central Park Livingston. On the north side of town, the Hidden Valley Golf & Country Club has a well-manicured course that receives plenty of rainfall, so there's no worry about playing on dry grass. It's also a healthy, verdant area with tall deciduous trees like maples, oaks, and more. In addition, The Livingston Municipal Airport 8A3 is north of town and where residents can cruise in and land their own planes.
The closest state park is Standing Stone State Park, which has camping grounds, waterfalls, ponds, and trails. Those who enjoy hunting can do so outside the state park’s boundaries.
Christmas in the Country is held in Central Park in the wintertime. The fireworks show is sponsored by the local EMS department and held at the Overton County Fair Grounds. In July, people from Northern Tennessee and some parts of Southern Kentucky visit the Overton County Fair Grounds to see the Overton County Agricultural Fair.
Children attend the well-run Overton County School District.
