About Wilson County

WilCo – short for Wilson County, Tennessee – loves our visitors (that must be due to our southern hospitality roots). Whether you’re visiting one of our awesome events, enjoying our state parks, watching a locally produced theatrical show, browsing one of our many boutiques, or tasting out of this world cuisine, you will soon see why WilCo is near Nashville, but miles from ordinary!

Since we love our visitors so much, we want to make sure that ALL of our guests are safe and healthy throughout the entirety of their stay. Some of our local shops and eateries might be closed or operating under a modified schedule so we encourage our guests to call any business before visiting!
