These folks were incredible from the word GO. They were great at returning my calls with questions and special requests and went above and beyond to make my buddy's bachelor party a brilliant experience. Josh was flexible, knowledgeable, and personable, making the experience just THAT...MoreThanks again for coming! We are glad we could work with you to make your shenanigans possible!

We have season tickets at the Fabulous Fox Theater in Atlanta, GA. So we have a good Theater for comparison. I wasn’t sure what to expect at the Tennessee Theater but I was amazed how beautifully is. What a gem in Knoxville! Amazing Art Deco , crystal chandeliers you like to take home and a wonderful intimate theater with about 1,400+ seats. No bad seat in the house!
Tip: there is a parking lot on Church street for convenient parking.

Visiting for the month we found this beautiful park on TA. We loved the beautiful river boardwalk trail surrounded by lush forest and rock formations. Our pup loved it also. Folks were very nice and it was very safe. The trails are good but could be challenging for the physically impaired. Highly recommended.

Seven Islands State Birding Park

Reviewed By Gene H - Seymour, Tennessee

This is one of the newest TN State Parks and it is a gem. The strategic location is because of the numbers of migrating birds that go through our area stop in at this location. For the first time I spotted an Orchard Orioles. Similar to their Baltimore Cousins but a little smaller and not as bright orange. May other birds that I will not ruin the surprise for you. Lots of paths/loops/trails and it is a pet friendly area. Bring water or a drink, you'll need it. There is nothing available on location. Binoculars and a camera are suggested.
Enjoy

Market Square

Reviewed By HootieToo - Mentor, Ohio

Had never been to Knoxville and went downtown for dinner during an overnight stop on the way to Florida. What a cool city!!

Went to Stock and Barrel which is located on Market Square. It's a charming square full of shops, restaurants, pubs, etc. There is a small stage in the center with plenty of seating. Lots of trees and greenery. I bet in Spring, Summer and Fall it is really lovely. Unfortunately in February it was too cold to really spend any time outside other than to walk through it which was still very enjoyable. The surrounding streets were also quite nice.

We'll be back next and who knows, maybe one year it will be warmer and we can spend more time in the Square.

River Islands Golf Club

With many trees, difficult water holes, and unusual layout, this Arthur Hills-designed 18-hole golf course challenges beginners and pros alike.

Reviewed By Dupers - Michigan

The River Island Golf Club is a great track, and with 4 sets of tees can provide a challenge for golfers of all levels and ability. Unfortunately, the fairways are showing a bit of wear and tear which is a result of a lot of play, and a very dry summer. While the course is a little out of the way, it is well worth the effort. Great rates can be had with Hot Deals on Golf Now.

University of Tennessee

Over 26,000 students attend the University of Tennessee.

Reviewed By heyjudithz - Knoxville, Tennessee

I went to school at the University when dinosaurs roamed the earth and no one cared about endless concrete or a lack of landscaping. At least the people in charge didn't seem to care. Fast-forward to today and you would hardly recognize it. There is a recent emphasis on making the architecture look somewhat uniform (i.e., building new buildings to look like the old, with a few exceptions), improving the looks and use of parking lots with trees, a rain garden near Claxton, hidden garages (under Vol Hall and across from the new Music Buildings) and pretty landscaping such as the massive plantings in the median near Fraternity Row. The physical campus has come such a long way in even the past ten years. The lighting at night is far, far improved as well. I am so proud of U.T.!
