B


Knoxville

I like long walks on the Neyland Drive Greenway, winding along the Tennessee River, the smell of Calhoun steaks in my nostrils.

I like riding my bike from home to work to downtown and all the places in between. I like that just about anywhere I go, I'll see someone I know who will wave and smile. I like that if I don't want to be known, I can drive out west. I love the thrift stores here, the seedy parts of town- Magnolia, Broadway, Central. I love the fact that going out hasn't become old, even though downtown is comprised of only a few blocks. I like that I can dress up or dress down for almost every occasion.

I love that Ijams Nature Center, The Knoxville Botanical Gardens, and greenways galore are a stone's throw away. I love that I can see the Smoky Mountains if I stand on the hill by my home.

I love the alleys in 4th and Gill, the square dancers, the old time players, the banjos, the bikers, the artists, the patios on Market Square.

I love when people move away from here and come back because they realize it's better, or at the very least, affordable.

I love that I can make art here, that I can go out on a limb and see my ideas (thoughts, dreams) come true.

Hola B,

We are a few DC folks who are doing our own MegaBus adventure to Knoxville! Any tips on what we should do while there???? We are looking for good local food and music tips (plus watering holes). We'll be there MON-WED of this week.

Thanks!
