Description

If you love small towns, you'll love Knoxville. And if you love big cities, well, you'll love Knoxville, too. Small town simplicity mixes with big city buzz in Knoxville, Tennessee. This Civil War headquarters is home to museums and historical monuments, as well as countless family-friendly sites. You can even take a lazy riverboat ride down the Tennessee River. When you're ready for the big city side of Knoxville, you can catch a sporting event or shop at any of the countless department stores or boutiques. And the nightlife in Knoxville is full of live entertainment, much of it free--whether at the bars or at one of the many outdoor concerts.
