While on vacation in Knoxville, you'll enjoy some of the city's most dramatic sights. Get a bird's eye view from the observation deck of the Sunsphere Tower, rising more than 250 feet. Reminiscent of a disco ball shimmering over the city, the tower presides over World's Fair Park. Park fountains include a one-story geyser and interactive fountains designed to splash and play in during summer's heat. See the city from the unique perspective of the water on a stand-up paddle board or canoe at the Outdoor Knoxville Adventure Center by the downtown waterfront.
During winter, glide gracefully around an ice skating rink in Market Square—perfect for a romantic date or a fun family vacation in Knoxville. The square bustles with activity throughout the year, with a summer concert series and a farmers market running from May through November. To take a spin around the city, reserve one of our rental cars and drive to more than 60 historic buildings in downtown, or bike along the downtown greenway that follows the river.
Before you abscond to the land of plucky banjos and blooming dogwood trees, curate your own custom Knoxville vacation package from our array of convenient flights and guest-loved hotels.
For a flurry of local flavor, plan your Knoxville vacation around the many festivals and events that fill the city with energy and excitement year-round. Taste the best biscuits you've ever laid lips on at the Biscuit Festival in May. The festival is home to all things buttery and delectable, including booths, bake-offs and a Mr. or Ms. Biscuit Pageant. When school lets out for summer, World Fair Park transforms into the Children's Festival of Reading. About so much more than books, this event features interactive science exhibitions, art displays, and cooking workshops for kids.
