Luxury holidays in Knoxville

When to go

Come for the dogwoods in spring and the foliage in fall – only come in high summer if you fancy fluttering a fan as you melt into a chair.

Getting there

  • Planes

    The McGhee Tyson Airport, a 20-minute drive from the city centre, has direct routes across the USA.
  • Automobiles

    Knoxville is a great stop at the tail end of an East Coast road trip if you’re transitioning to the South; Interstate 81 runs all the way down from New York (although you’ll want a few stops in between). Several major roads run through the city, so car is kind of the default transport mode, although there are pedestrianised parts. And, various scenic routes have been carved into the Smoky Mountains.
