What’s not to love about the Dukes of Hazzard?
Surrounded by a cast of characters that includes their cousin Daisy, Cooter, Boss Hogg, Roscoe P. Coltrane, Enos, and more, Bo and Luke Duke are a couple of good ole boys trying to stop small town corruption while upholding the values that their Uncle Jesse teaches along the way.
And the cars – who doesn’t love them? From Bo and Luke’s General Lee, to Daisy’s Jeep, Cooter’s Tow Truck, and the police cruisers that always ended up crashed after a chase with the boys.
Ben Jones, aka Cooter, understands the value of their show and what it means to its diehard fans; the ones that watched it as it originally aired and those children watching it on DVD today.
To preserve the show’s history, it’s legacy, and the values that it teaches, Jones gives the fans Cooter’s Place; both located in Tennessee (Nashville and Gatlinburg) and while both sell Dukes merchandise, each is slightly different from one another.
2613 McGavock Pike
Nashville, TN 37214
The Nashville location acts more as a nostalgic walk down memory lane as you travel through a museum featuring Dukes of Hazzard classic merchandise, props from the show, Roscoe’s police uniform, original scripts, memorabilia, and more!
You can also get your photo taken inside the cars that the show made famous including the General Lee, Cooter’s tow truck, Roscoe’s police car, and Daisy’s Jeep.
Speaking of Daisy, Catherine Bach (aka Daisy Duke) recently opened up Daisy Country in the back of Cooter’s Place, which features her personal clothing line, jewelry, and additional memorabilia from the show.
Gatlinburg, TN 37738
Whereas the Nashville location offers fans a full museum to reminisce in while walking through, the location in Gatlinburg is more of a family fun center.
You can go a few laps around the track on the Indoor Duke’s Themed Go-Karts or take a stroll through Hazzard County as you play 18-holes of Mini-Golf upstairs.
Fun Fact – You never know when you will run into Cooter, Luke, Daisy, Enos, or Cletus. The show’s stars frequently stop by the two locations throughout the year for autograph signings and meet-n-greets with the fans.
