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 the main street where the renowned Mast General Store offers 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.
Waynesville is 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 Top 10 Restaurants near Waynesville, with diner reviews.
