A city built on country roots and urban structure, Knoxville welcomes people of all kinds. Listen to the acoustic guitars, crooning voices, and unstoppable beats as you walk the street of this comfortable Southern town. Knoxville has its heels strongly planted in its Civil war roots, making this city a highly historical locale and a complex and interesting place to visit. 

As you familiarize yourself with everything from the very edges of the city and the heart of it all, you’ll notice how time has changed some things, but preserved others exactly where they were hundreds of years ago. The Mabry-Hazen House, for instance, once existed as the headquarters for the Confederate and Union Armies, and other homes all over the city have been kept to display the city’s historical significance. 

If you’re bringing the kids with you, then there are plenty of places you can bring them to ensure they are entertained at all times. Museums, zoos, and parks are scattered all over the city, begging to be explored and enjoyed by travelers of all ages. Once you’ve done all you can on land, take a riverboat ride on the Tennessee River. No matter what you’re looking for, or when you want to go, travel to Knoxville for an unforgettable experience.

Knoxville, TN climate

Precipitation comes at its highest point during the winter and early spring, when snow and rain occasionally make appearances. January temperatures usually drop to the 30s, and July temperatures skyrocket to the high 70s and low 80s.

Knoxville, TN Travel Information

Market Square:

A feeding ground for all five senses, Market Square has the hustle and bustle of the city down pat. When you visit Knoxville, definitely put this at the top of your agenda. Teeming with restaurants, shops, and concert halls, culture and entertainment are bridged here, and enjoyed by the happy crowds of people that can do enjoy a cocktail, savor a gourmet meal, or rock out to their favorite bands all on the same block. A perfect place to enjoy the weather, Market Square is usually packed in the summer, especially for the free outdoor concert series.

Knoxville Zoo:

While you can’t take one of these fuzzy little creatures home, you can surely enjoy their company when you visit the Knoxville Zoo. See red pandas in their natural habitat exhibits, or watch otters swim around in graceful formations in the water. Although sometimes criticized for being situated a little too close to the road (you can see cars through some of the exhibits), the baby rhinos don’t seem to mind, and neither do the happy kids that run through here.

Knoxville Museum of Art:

If you’re craving a little artistic culture when you travel to Knoxville, look no further than the Knoxville Museum of Art, which is the perfect place to go on a rainy day. Situated on World’s Fair Park Drive, the museum hosts 12 temporary exhibitions a year (once a month) and has wonderful permanent collections that focus on postmodern works. For anyone interested in art, both local and national, this is the place to see it.

Boom’s Day:

If you’re planning your visit around Labor Day, then you will be able to catch one of the biggest events of the year called Boom’s Day. Held on the waterfront in honor of Labor Day, huge, bright fireworks are held on the waterfront with an enormous musical soundtrack played from a live band. More than 400,000 spectators come every year and enjoy the aesthetic display. Once filmed by national Geographic for its special features, this night filmed with live entertainment is surely one for the books.
