For 22 years, I called Knoxville home. It is a mid-sized city located about an hour away from the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Tennessee is bordered by eight states, more states nieghbor it than anywhere else in the country, and auto travelers usually pass through Knoxville on their way to the Southeastern U.S.
College football is practically a religion in the Southeast, and the blood of Knoxville's residents runs orange. The city is home to the main campus of The University of Tennessee, and its football and womens basketball teams are always among the nation's best. Please note that wearing anything with a University of Flordia logo on it could put you in a life threatening situation.
Nature lovers will find Knoxville especially pleasing. There are mountains, valleys, and lakes spread throughout the area. The city experiences all four seasonal climates from hot, humid summers to bitingly cold winters. Autumn is a time to behold with a full palette of fall colors appearing on the landscape.
Knoxville also famously hosted the 1982 World's Fair which was the backdrop for a hilarious episode of The Simpsons called "Bart on the Road" (Season 7, Episode 21). A fictional fraternity at The University of Tennessee was also featured in the movie "Road Trip."

This was the second stop on our 30-day journey across the United States. Since we were arriving after 2pm, we didn't expect to be able to do much more than relax and finally take a break from driving.

I've stayed at the Marriott in Knxoville several times over the past few months and I find the hotel an excellent place to stay for business or pleasure.
