Highlights of Knoxville
Great Smoky Mountains
Just a short trip away from the city, you'll find the endless beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains. Explore miles of trails, find hidden gems nestled into the wilderness, and enjoy the breathtaking majesty of the mountains.
One of the most striking structures in all of Knoxville, the Sunsphere was built during the 1982 World's Fair and now provides one of the best, 360-degree views of Downtown and the Tennessee River that you'll find.
Tons of events, unique locally owned shops and restaurants, diverse art galleries and museums—you could spend days exploring all that the Downtown area has to offer. You'll find a little something for every interest!
What You'll Love
Tons of Parks & Natural Areas
Since the Great Smoky Mountains are just a short trip away, all of the outdoor exploration you could ask for is just minutes from your front door—whether you're hoping to hike the scenic trails, take a bike ride along the ridges, find a cool spot to swim, or do almost anything else under the sun!
If you'd prefer to stick around the Knoxville area, you can also have fun exploring Concord Park, Fort Dickerson Park, and Ijams Nature Center.
Variety of Community Events
No matter the week, month, or season, the local community is always hosting some sort of celebration of festivity. Knoxville is the home of the Tennessee Volunteers, which brings vibrant fans from all over for basketball and football games downtown. As far as annual events go, you'll want to check out Bike, Boat, Brew, & Bark in the summer, the Tennessee Valley Fair in the early fall, the Downtown Peppermint Trail in the winter, and the Big Ears Festival in the spring.
And it's not just the annual events—if you keep up with the community calendar, you'll find that there's seldom a weekend that isn't filled with happenings!
Rich Arts & Culture
For a city on the smaller side, Knoxville has a refreshingly active arts and culture scene. Head Downtown, and you can spend days exploring the many museums, including the Museum of East Tennessee History, Knoxville Museum of Art, McClung Museum of Natural History and Culture, and the Beck Cultural Exchange Center.
Want to take in a bit of local art? Be sure to check out spots like the Art Market Gallery, Bennett Galleries, and the Emporium Center.
