Visiting from Florida, we stopped in and Laurie was very helpful in explaining the towns history and pointed out a few quicks stops we could make. Small shops, antiques and historical pharmacy with a diner. We will plan it better next time and try a walking tour to take in all Madison has to offer.

Jeannnie was a big help in providing material and suggestions of places to see while we visited downtown Madison. We had a wonderful time on the walk of historical homes, the local artists guild store, 2 very good restaurants, and ice cream and chocolates at Antique candy. This charming town is well worth a visit!

My wife and I planned a quick get away to Madison to decompress. First thing we did when we arrived as to stop by the welcome center where we were greeted with great southern hospitality. Jeannia was a wealth of super helpful information. We took the recommend walking tour and ended up at the Fairview Market for lunch.
If you have not been to Madison before, you need to stop in the welcome center and get the great tips on things to see, including the walking tour guide!

We only had a few hours to visit the beautiful Southern town. We stopped in first at the welcome Center for wonderful information from Laurie. She did a wonderful job in explaining the wealth of the town and its history. We got a nice booklet with a map. She drew on the map so that we could see only the few areas that we had time to see. I will visit there again. Thank you, Laurie!

Francesca couldn’t have been more helpful! It was clear that she not only knew a lot about Madison, but she was very proud of her city. The walk around the historic sites was incredibly interesting! (Applause to whoever created that clever tour.). I learned where to go, what to see, where to eat, and where to shop. Wonderful.

We were doing a quick visit and stopped in to the visitor center where we met Shelly. What an amazing experience. The building is an old firehouse Shelly explained the history of. She was friendly and extremely knowledgeable. We have scheduled a second trip to see more of her suggestions and recommendations. Beautiful area we are so excited to explore. Thanks Shelly, so appreciate you!

It was really helpful to stop at the Welcome Center before we set off on a walking tour of Madison. Jeannie couldn’t have been nicer! She recommended utilizing the audio component of the walking tour, which greatly enhanced our experience. We also toured the various houses and museums along the walking tour, which was fun and educational. All of the docents were knowledgeable and friendly. We had a very full and enjoyable day in Madison!

We stopped in Madison on our way up to the Smokey Mountains. Jeannie was so helpful in explaining what we should see on a short walking, then driving tour of Madison. We found the town, homes and downtown charming; so good to see the old buildings being refurbished and repurposed. I even got to utilize the restroom facility in the center, nice and clean. Thank you for being so hospitable.

Francesca provided an easy to follow walking tour and delineated the more significant places to visit. The homes were most impressive and we fortunately were visiting during Spring when flowers and trees were blooming. The myriad Dogwood and Wisteria were fabulous. As we walked, we were repeatedly greeted by friendly residents.
