I agree. I love Knoxville--I grew up loving it (I'm from TN). But, Knoxville always left a lot to be desired. Great zoo, and some great neighborhoods, but not a lot of originality or uniqueness.

Too bad, too...because it looks great on paper:
On the edge of the Smokies
The Tennessee River runs through downtown
The University of TN is there
Yet it is a terrible disappointment.

It's always nice to elaborate when you throw out such strong statements. A terrible disappointment? Please.

Well downtown Knoxville has gotten a lot prettier in the last 5 years but you'd have to get off the interstate to know that.

Isn't this a contest for Miss Congeniality, anyway?

I'm on board with Knoxville too. As creeksitter mentioned, they are making efforts to improve it as well.

I prefer Chattanooga to Knoxville, but I like Knoxville too. I think it's a great place with some good things going for it for its size.
