INTRODUCING

All Things Downtown

What is life in Knoxville without the occasional jaunt downtown?? The heart of Downtown Knoxville lies between the railroad and the river. With sidewalks and patios galore, it’s easy to walk the entire span – but scooters and trolleys are also available if those heels ended up being a bad idea 👀

Gorgeous historic buildings are home to everything from basement bowling alleys to rooftop bars to iconic venues. (You haven’t reeeeally been to Knoxville until you’ve taken a photo in front of the Tennessee Theatre sign!) Speaking of icons, the Sunsphere shines over the whole kit and caboodle.  

Park in one of the many cheap parking garages (free during nights and weekends) and then spend a worry-free afternoon galavanting around the many local parks, museums, bars, and eateries! Or, you know, snag a loft and explore for a lifetime! 😉
