The Path Into the Lake
Issue: March 23, 2021
The Path Into The Lake
You’ll never know who you’ll run into when you take a stroll on the boardwalk at Wildwood… happy couples, the Jackson County Mayor, families with their pets, performing artists from Nashville, someone vacationing from the UK, pro photographers and even early morning yoga enthusiasts that want to feel true Tennessee Zen. The wooden walkway stretches out into the lake for over a quarter of a mile. It is actually Tennessee’s longest waterfront boardwalk. There isn’t an entrance fee and this path into the lake is open year-round for all to enjoy.
You can always count on passing a couple holding hands. There is just something so romantic about a boardwalk and it is almost like a magnetic force that somehow causes two hands to reach for each other when you begin the journey. This boardwalk has a prize at the end called the sunset pavilion and sunsets are just one of the great things you’ll discover out here. You are far enough out from the resort that most of the time you’ll only hear the sounds of nature. Often you’ll have the whole pavilion and comfy chairs all to yourselves too. The sunsets are paired nicely with a nice glass of Pinot Grigio or a warm cup of hot chocolate.
It’s For Everyone
The Boardwalk is Something Special
The boardwalk at Wildwood is also available for private parties, small weddings and romantic dinners. We can bring everything to you, from music through our portable Bose sound system, authentic cuisine from our restaurants to drink options via our fancy beverage cart. There is a private boat dock too at the sunset pavilion so you can arrive or depart by water if you want to make it even a little more unforgettable.
