The state's third-largest city offers a vibrant — and walkable — downtown, a variety of outdoor activities and festivals throughout the year. And a lot of orange. Neyland Stadium, on the University of Tennessee-Knoxville's campus, is the nation's fifth-largest stadium, and the college's Vols football team packs the stands for home games.
But Big Orange Country is way more than a college town, with plenty to see and do for all ages. Knoxville was recently named by TripAdvisor as a Top 10 Destination on the Rise.
*There are several types of downtown tours to help you make the most of your visit.
*Whether your idea of “parking” it is enjoying a riverside picnic, playtime with man’s best friend or some high-energy adrenaline, Knoxville offers hundreds of acres with outdoor opportunities in diverse park and greenway settings.
