On your next trip to Knoxville, make sure to consider employing our Knoxville car hire services as your main means of transportation through the third-largest city in the state of Tennessee. The city is most well known for being the home of the University of Tennessee’s main campus as well as being the site of the 1982 World’s Fair.

The city is served by the McGhee Tyson Airport but you can also reach the city by road and boat, however if you do land here you can employ our Knoxville car rental services to have a car of your choice ready and waiting for you at the airport at an hour that you specify.

Even though Knoxville isn’t known for being a tourist destination, there are a few attractions and sight around the city which one can visit while on their trip there.

The Market Square for instance is a small and historic downtown square, a place where you can find restaurants, shops, special events and twice a week it turns into a farmer’s market. The square features the bell from the old Market House which once stood at the center, as well as a statue commemorating Tennessee’s role in the women’s suffrage movement. The square has benches and tables and this makes it a great place to spend a couple of hours, eating with friends, or browsing the shops; on any given day you can encounter interesting events ranging from a pair of cellists playing Beatles songs to an ice cream give away.

Knoxville has a lot of places where its history can be seen through architecture, for instance the Fort Sanders neighborhood features many Victorian-era houses and the Old City, besides being a focus for the city’s nightlife, features a lot of interesting architecture as well.

Something that you’ll surely have to see if you’re visiting during the summer months is the World’s Fair Park.

These are of course only a few of the things that you can see and do while in Knoxville so make sure to employ our Knoxville car hire services in order to better explore this city and its sights.
