Knoxville

Rich with history and culture, Knoxville Tennessee offers a modern Appalachian city with superb dining, nightlife, museums, shopping, outdoor recreation and championship sports. Surrounded by the natural beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains and five regional lakes, Knoxville offers big city attractions with a dose of small-town charm on the banks of the Tennessee River.

Tennessee's original capital, Knoxville, boasts a charming historic downtown as well as area attractions fit for the whole family. Take the afternoon to grab a bite to eat in the culturally eclectic Market Square, or pedal more than 50 miles of paved greenways. Enjoy an evening with the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra or jam out at the Tennessee Theatre. Feed your wild side at the Knoxville Zoo or explore the nation's most visited national park less than an hour away.
