The past year has been difficult with many of us staying at home and socially distancing. On the one hand, we were able to catch up on rest, spend time with our households, and focus on catching up on work. But now it’s safe to say we’re all a little stir crazy. With many of us seeking out fun and creative ways to socially distance, the Knoxville Visitors Center has put together some fun products for you to enjoy while staying home.
Tennessee Volunteers Puzzle
This detailed five-hundred-piece puzzle displaying the Knoxville skyline and parts of The University of Tennessee is bound to keep you busy.

The Sunsphere, Calhouns on the River, Neyland Stadium, and Ayres Hall are just a few of the places you will hunt for while putting this puzzle together. Purchase one here for in-store pick-up or have it shipped to you.
“A Fun Game Celebrating the Marble City”. A twist on the classic Monopoly game, Knoxville-opoly showcases local parks, events, attractions, and landmarks such as the Dogwood Arts Festival, the Tennessee Theatre, World’s Fair Park, Ijams Nature Center, and many more. So, while we are socially distancing and staying home, this is a fun way to still explore our city, even if it is from a board game. Traditionally played with 2 to 6 people, this is a great option to entertain the whole family. Purchase one here for game night!
