Take the time to Cut & Run to Highway 31, the South’s Mother Road. 

Welcome to the downtown area of Pulaski, Giles County, which promises wonderful shopping and dining experiences, arts and entertainment. The square revolves around the neoclassical building of the historic Giles County Courthouse, which was completed in 1909. You’ll notice its tall Corinthian columns and the cupola, in which the 1858 bell still strikes the hours.

The Clothes Pen Children's and Women's Boutique is one of the shops in the area. In addition to clothing, accessories, shoes and gifts for children and adults, the store offers jewelry and monogramming.

When you’re ready to relax, stop by Second Street Coffee House. Whether you’re in the mood for espresso or latte, the barista will serve your drink with a smile, and you’ll enjoy the cozy environment. Beautiful art covers the walls of the café to enhance your experience.

For cold and healthy drinks, visit Pulaski Nutrition, where you’ll discover various flavors of loaded teas packed with vitamins and energy.

Exploring downtown Pulaski is not complete without a tasty meal. The Southern Table invites you to dine in a friendly and comfortable atmosphere. The Southern Table is owned and operated by Pulaski native Ryan Yokley, who earned his culinary arts degree from the Nashville Art Institute. The menu includes Fried Green Tomatoes, Shrimp Ceviche, Stuffed Rainbow Trout and BBQ Shrimp and Grits.

The Yellow Deli is another option for delicious meals. Visit the Yellow Deli for homemade desserts, soups, breads, salads and sandwiches.

To make your trip to Pulaski even more memorable, see a show at Southern Tennessee Area Arts Repertory (STAAR) Theatre, which has provided music and arts entertainment for more than 20 years. The building is a contributing structure to the Pulaski Courthouse Square Historic District, which was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1985.
