Must visit!
Very helpful and friendly people. Recommended first stop if you are visiting Knoxville.
If you're from out of town try to make it to this spot so they can give you some advice and probably discounts on some attractions in the area. these people here are very friendly and if you're new to town give them a shout.
All the info and pamphlets you could ask for. Helpful staff and occasional live events.
Compared to most visitor centers, this one needs 10 stars! Great place to start in your exploration of Knoxville and other local areas.
