Knoxville Tours, Vacations & Travel Packages
A gateway to the American frontier, Knoxville became the state capital in 1796 and energy seems to hum out of this dynamic city by way of the vibrant community of students from the University of Tennessee, the harnessed power of damns and lakes for a hundred years and the surrounding national parks of Big South Fork National River and Recreation Areas, Cumberland Gap and the Great Smoky Mountains where the power of the wilderness is ever-present. Following the Tennessee River makes for a lovely walk through the centre of town and the concrete walkways of Volunteer Landing lead to restaurants with a view of the river. Hop on a free Knoxville Trolley which runs through downtown to rest your feet and enjoy the ride.
The Knoxville Museum of Art of the Knoxville Zoological Park offers everything from outdoor sculpture gardens to miniature steam trains and elephant rides. The elegantly casual restaurants with an emphasis on fresh fish and barbeque, the boutique clothing stores of Downtown and Market Square and the energy of the Old City district which comes alive after dark in the form of trendy nightlife, lead to a good time. For history lovers, Knoxville saw Civil War action and the Mabry-Hazen House was a headquarters for both Confederate and Union forces during the Civil War is full of it. At James White’s Fort, log cabins and pioneer furniture take you back to the days of the first pioneers who made Knoxville their own.
