With a sophisticated mix of culture and cuisine, served up with Southern hospitality, Knoxville is that big town that treats everyone like a local.

Little City. Big Attitude.

Knoxville offers a surprisingly real, truly accessible, and unexpectedly sophisticated mix of culture, adventure, and cuisine rooted in history and genuine Southern hospitality. Often described as a hidden gem, Knoxville is a secret you can’t wait to share. A place where everything comes together. It’s America, concentrated in one breathtakingly beautiful spot.

Knoxville will surprise you. The pure walkability of downtown allows you to explore and discover vibrant murals, local music, historic sites, and museums. Just three miles from downtown, Knoxville’s Urban Wilderness features quarry lakes and more than 50 miles of mixed-use trails for hiking, biking, and birding. Just save room for dinner. Knoxville is emerging as one of the best culinary and craft beer towns in the Southeast, and is home to a few stops on the Tennessee Whiskey Trail. We look forward to welcoming you to the city we love to call home!


Getting here is easy! Knoxville is located at the intersection of I-75, I-40 and I-81-within a day’s drive of nearly half the U.S. population.

“If we only address cities, we are doing this wrong. We have to address rural, suburban, urban, a full matrix of where everybody lives, met them where they live, and build technologies on top of each other to really meet those goals. That is really the crux of Mobility as a Service.”
