Blue Ridge Outdoors Magazine’s recent article 48 Hours in Knoxville notes we are “now fast becoming one of the hottest outdoor cities on the east coast.”
And, they say the place to start is our Outdoor Knoxville Adventure Center. As an outpost of the Knoxville Visitors Center, we have maps, brochures, magazines, and flyers about all sorts of activities. The Billy Lush Board Shop on the main level rents paddleboards, kayaks, canoes, and bikes to be used in the river or on the greenway, both adjoining our location on Volunteer Landing.
The author also mentions several locations within Knoxville’s Urban Wilderness, and admits you could easily spend your entire 48 hours just playing there!
