Exploring Knoxville's Southern Charm

Exploring Knoxville's Southern Charm

Nestled in the scenic beauty of Tennessee, Knoxville is a vibrant city that combines rich history, Southern charm, and a thriving cultural scene. Whether you're a local looking for new adventures or a visitor eager to explore, Knoxville offers a variety of experiences that capture the essence of the Volunteer State. I recently stopped overnight and got a taste of this gem of a city.

Market Square and Old City

Kick off your Knoxville adventure at Market Square, where the bustling farmer's market offers plenty of local delights. Don't miss a visit to Mast General Store, a historic gem brimming with nostalgic treasures and Appalachian goodies.

Knoxville Museum of Art

Immerse yourself in creativity at the Knoxville Museum of Art, where you can marvel at the glass sculptures of local artist Richard Jolley. 

Urban Wilderness at Ijams Nature Center

If you have more time, escape the city buzz and delve into nature at Ijams Nature Center. Hike along the scenic trails, kayak on the tranquil Mead's Quarry Lake, or rent a bike from River Sports Outfitters and enjoy the scenery.

Historic Market House and Gay Street

Stroll down Gay Street, lined with charming shops and eateries, and make a pit stop at the Historic Market House Café. Indulge in their famous biscuits and gravy or a classic Southern breakfast while soaking in the friendly ambiance.

Tennessee Riverfront

Take a leisurely stroll along the Tennessee Riverfront, where parks, greenways, and riverwalks offer breathtaking views and recreational opportunities. Rent a kayak or paddleboard from Billy Lush Boards & Brews for a water adventure or simply relax by the water's edge.

    From vibrant markets to serene nature escapes and cultural gems, Knoxville beckons with its unique blend of Southern hospitality and down-to-earth charm. Get ready to create unforgettable memories in this welcoming Tennessee city!
