They have live music, food, drinks, information. It's really awesome in here only downside is parking which is under construction. Good place to figure out what's going on in Knoxville
This is a MUST noontime M-Th and Sat stop if you're visiting downtown Knoxville. At the corner of Gay St and Summit Hill, the Visitor's Center offers a place to sit and enjoy LIVE on WDVX BLUE PLATE SPECIAL 89.9 radio broadcasting, with Red Hickey hosting. Sometimes two bands, and this day one. Amy Ray and her most excellent band moved us and grooved us for an hour. Red will walk you thru how to be live on the radio. Enjoy!
Probably the coolest visitors center that I've ever come across. There was live music as we were walking in, with multiple singers. Stop by the gift shop to pick up all your Knoxville merch. And don't forget to put a pin in one of their amazing world maps to show everyone where you've been!
What a neat visitor center! I think it’s the coolest one I’ve ever been to - with a performance area and a band was about to play! The gift shop had a lot of interesting and quality items. The staff was super friendly and helpful about what to see that’s within walking distance. They had a decent selection of brochures as well. This should be your first stop!
After searching for a Knoxville postcard I decided to call the Visitors Center. I was asked to send a postcard to a nephew in Dallas, Texas to report a citing of the Gingerbread Man- a kindergarten class project. Relatives were asked to send postcards from all over the world to share the different locations of where the Gingerbread Man had been seen. I had the most pleasant experience!! The Director of the Visitors Center, Monica went above and beyond to help me!! She helped me choose the perfect card, and personally wrote my card from my dictation and placed it in the mail for me!! I was not able to get to the center before the deadline and Monica made it happen. It’s wonderful to know this type of kindness still exists in our world!! A special, heartfelt THANKS to Monica Armstrong ~ she’s an ideal representative for the city of Knoxville ❤️!!
