Hubby and I didn’t have time to walk around Downtown Knoxville in Tennessee, but we wanted to take a peek. So I took pictures from the car as we drove around.
Knoxville is the 3rd largest city in Tennessee. It was the state’s 1st capital, having been established in 1786. It hosted the 1982 World’s Fair. The flagship campus of the University of Tennessee is located here. It is one of the gateways to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
Here is a glimpse of 5 of Knoxville’s no fee attractions.

The building was constructed for the 1982 World’s Fair. It is 266 feet tall and has an observation deck at the 4th level which offers views of downtown Knoxville, Tennessee River, Univeristy of Tennessee, and Smoky Mountains. The 5th level has a bar and lounge.

It is a sculpture of a man rowing a boat that is half sunk in a brick sidewalk. This art by David L. Phelps represents humor and perseverance in the face of adversity.

The park is in the middle of Downtown Knoxville and is presently home to various sculptures which are presently open for voting the title of Most Favorite. In the photo are “Stroll in the Park” by Robbie Barber and “Mantra” by Ray Katz.

I wish hubby and I had time to explore Knoxville. It seems to be an interesting city to get to know. It was fun snapping pictures from the passenger seat of the car. I hope you all enjoyed the photos.
