• Ready and excited to welcome you ville


Knoxville has been waiting for you. Waiting patiently. And preparing for your arrival. Knoxville IS a nature-loving-adventure-seeking-artsy-kinda-town. At this time, we’re also a physically-separated-yet-socially-connected-life-loving community. If you’re ready and able to travel, we look forward to welcoming you… or welcoming you back.

If you’re still waiting to travel, we understand. We hope you take comfort in knowing Knoxville businesses are doing their part to operate safely. It's these people and businesses that make Knoxville a wonderful place to visit, as well as live, work, and play.

Beginning July 3, the Knox County Board of Health has mandated mask wearing county-wide in indoor public spaces and enclosed spaces where maintaining 6 feet of social distancing is not feasible.

As we welcome the faces we love back to the places we love, we encourage you to follow the guidelines in place so we can move forward safely… together.
