    Friendly staff, great place to shop if you like the dukes of hazzard, they have tvs up showing the shows when you walk in, you can even get your picture taken beside and inside the general Lee. Prices for shirts and souvenirs are a bit high. I would recommend this place though. Sometimes they have visits from the stars of the show themselves but you never know when that will be.

    The best go carts in Gatlinburg, the Father and Son who are in the go carts are two of the best individuals working that we have ever meet. Our girls had the best time with them, the son even got out there with us to show the girls how to use the cars. The father and son are the best, you need to make sure you never lose them. We all will be back next year to ride with them again......Thank you from the Slavey family.

    Great place to see. A lot of history in The Dukes Of Hazard displayed here. Woul recommend people who visit Gatlinburg to stop here for a visit.
