Shopping & Dining
Waynesville Shopping & Dining
Nestled in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Waynesville is the oldest town in Haywood County and a great place to shop and dine. Unique shops line main street where you’ll find the reknowned Mast General Store offering fashions, comfortable footwear, outdoor and travel gear, rocking chairs and over 500 old-fashioned candies. Waynesville offers arts and handmade Appalachian crafts, home furnishings, clothing and unique gifts. It’s also one of our favorite places to dine. The Sweet Onion is a local favorite, but there are many great options to choose from. See Yelp’s list with diner reviews.
