You've probably seen Knoxville whether you've been there or not. Its nickname is The Marble City, and its quarries provided building marble all over the U.S. There are notable buildings, such as the National Gallery in Washington as well as others, which were built of marble quarried in Knoxville.
Knoxville played a part in the Civil War and while there was some destruction, the city bounced back quickly during the Reconstruction period. 15 years after the end of the war, more than 95 factories and mills were at work making the city one of the largest wholesale centers for textiles, furniture and iron products in the country. Modern Knoxville is an energy center and is also considered the heart of the high tech Tennessee Valley Corridor.
You'll find a variety of options when you start looking for your Knoxville apartment. The western portion of the city is by far the most upscale and great for family life.
East Knoxville is older and trendier these days. The south side of the city is more newly developed and merits looking at too. Downtown is a wealth of great apartments. There are restored Victorian 'highrises' - well, they were tall then- along with wonderful mews houses on the waterfront.
Since Knoxville is located on 30 minutes from the Great Smokies National Park, the area has a lot to offer the outdoors person. The river offers great fishing and boating opportunities. The city is cultivating greenspaces and many of them allow biking into the downtown area. It's another way of commuting!

Knoxville has a full slate of theatre, music and museums so if indoor activities are your thing, you're in luck.
BBQ & Baking
Near your Knoxville apartment, you'll find plenty of restaurants. On the surface, there are many national chains but if you look a little harder, there are some great, more locally owned restaurants.
M&M Catering is just that. Located in a simple, concrete block house, it has the best barbeque in town. Litton's is also a favorite and serves not only the best burgers in town but the best, freshly baked chocolate chip cookies. You'll know you've found it by your nose.
From intimate pubs to splashy discos, Knoxville has a great nightlife. Checkout the Preservation Pub with its big selection of beers and live music or go downtown to Sapphire's. It's trendy, upscale and always a lively scene. You'll quickly find the places that feel like home to you and with its Southern atmosphere, new friends will be easy to make.
