We’re told Southern hospitality has its own flavor. It’s rich and smoky, with the slightest waft of barbecue…or is that just the scent that wafts through Knoxville, Tennessee, on any given day? The kindness of strangers is an everyday occurrence in “K-Town,” as is the taste of its sweet, tangy barbecue sauce.
You didn’t just come here to eat, although that’s certainly on your docket. You came to breathe in the fresh air in the Great Smoky Mountains, to listen to up-and-coming bands that play across the city, and wander through a historic district that has stood the test of time. You’ll find much to see and do no matter what time of year you visit, and when you book downtown Knoxville hotels through Travelocity, all of K-Town will be at your fingertips.
A frugal traveler is a wise traveler, and Knoxville has numerous activities you can enjoy without spending a great deal of cash. The World’s Park Fair, with its exquisite fountains and sparkling Sunsphere, are just some of the many attractions contained in this 10-acre public space. You don’t need to go far to rest your head after a day exploring the park’s many offerings; book a room at Four Points by Sheraton Knoxville Cumberland House Hotel, and you’ll have an easy walk to the park, should you wish to enjoy your morning cup of coffee amid its greenery.
Those who travel know how powerful Mother Nature can be. Nowhere is this more evident than when you hike the trails of Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Locals and visitors flock to this haven of rivers, forests, and waterfalls. Take a morning hike and watch the sun gently burn through the fog, or venture out in early afternoon to enjoy a picnic near a babbling brook. The University of Tennessee Gardens are another popular space, home to thousands of types of flora. Should the gardens—and the campus on which they’re situated—call your name, consider staying nearby in Hilton Garden Inn Knoxville/University. It’s mere footfalls away from the campus.
You don’t need to look far to find live music in Knoxville. This city embraces its musicians, and provides numerous outlets for visitors and residents alike to see them ply their craft. Take in a show at an elegant, traditional hall like the Tennessee Theatre, located conveniently near many of our Knoxville downtown hotels. On the opposite end of the spectrum are the many bars, pubs, and clubs that feature live music, some on a nightly basis, some only on the weekends. A walk through the Market Square area will bring you to countless places to indulge in some singing and dancing.
