Downtown Delights and Natural Eye Appeal

Knoxville & Middle East

A place with wholesome fun for kids, an eclectic night scene, lots of live music, the arts, and edgy Southern cuisine. All in a just-the-right-size city area, Knoxville lives and plays large.

Set against the backdrop of the Smokies and surrounded by water for recreation, Knoxville is an urban playground with upbeat nightlife, crowd-crazy sports, an exquisite and historic state theatre and World War II secrets.

Knoxville and its surrounding area have the perfect blend of historic charm and urban fun. The beauty of the water and mountains inspires you to come out and play. Historic Market Square and downtown are a mecca for shopping, farm-to-table food, live music and dramatic performances. The University of Tennessee’s Game Day pulses with “Rocky Top,” a sea of orange and white, tailgate aromas and the Vol Navy streaming down the Tennessee River.

A vein of creative energy distinguishes Knoxville and surrounding towns. Knoxville is home to a rich arts community. The International Biscuit Festival, Dogwood Arts, and other festivals will entertain and inspire. Award-winning WDVX radio station offers daily concerts and streams lunchtime Americana music and roots worldwide. In nearby Oak Ridge, you’ll find World War II history, renowned museums and Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Take the Knoxville Civil War Driving Tour to learn how the war changed the region.

It’s easy to be inspired at Sequoyah Birthplace Museum in Vonore as you learn about the Native American who created a written language for the Cherokee people. And, what could be more creative (or tasty) than the fine-honed culinary art achieved by Benton’s Smoky Mountain Country Hams & Bacon? Sail the Lost Sea, the nations largest underground lake. Sample treats at area wineries and farms. Explore the great outdoors and an original way of life at Norris Dam State Park
