Marble City

A gateway to Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Knoxville embraces music culture. Music is part of the fabric of the city, and places like Knoxville Opera Company and festivals such as the “Autumn on the Square” show off the best local musicians. The city was named 17th on Blender Magazine's "20 Most Rock & Roll Towns in the U.S." The early settlement of the city can still be seen in the preserved rustic cabin of James White in the downtown area, along with the red-brick buildings and cozy storefronts.
