Get comfortable in our Holiday Inn Express® hotels in Knoxville, Tennessee. A glass of iced sweet tea awaits you in Market Square, where shaded patio cafes sit amid charming antiques shops and trendy boutiques.
Tennessee's best hoops-shooting is at the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame, an eye-catching museum topped by a 10-ton basketball and just minutes away from our hotels in Knoxville. After learning about basketball's best female players, play a little one-on-one and race others in a dribbling contest on the indoor courts. Downtown, the Knoxville Museum of Art showcases the best of eastern Tennessee's 20th- and 21st-century artists. The collections here range from abstract paintings to mixed media collages and mobiles. Just beyond downtown, red pandas, African elephants, black bears and 800 other animals thrive in the forests and grasslands of Knoxville Zoo.
On sultry summer days, guests of our hotels in Knoxville will be tempted to join the city's kids splashing in the Market Square fountain spray in the heart of downtown. Most visitors to this central square opt to sit beneath shaded verandas sipping iced sweet tea and dining on barbecued pulled-pork sandwiches or chicken-fried steak. Market Square antiques shops draw in window-shoppers with 19th-century silver sets and primitive Southern crafts, while boutiques go modern with chunky costume jewelry and tailored leather jackets. After hours, enjoy a cool evening breeze while sampling a glass of Tennessee whiskey.
Stay at our Holiday Inn Express hotels in Knoxville to discover the changing colors of Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The hazy mountain peaks bloom red and pink with rhododendrons in spring and blaze brilliant orange during autumn. Just an hour's drive from our Knoxville hotels, this park's hiking trails and driving tour through original old-growth forest lead to sweeping vistas of green mountains and purple sunsets.
