Go Downtown

While the Johnson campus has a rural feel, it’s only 10 miles from downtown Knoxville. Catch a concert, explore Old City, or just grab coffee and study in a sunny spot!

Market Square
Market Square is one of Knoxville’s most popular places to shop, work, play, and eat. In addition to the great restaurants, visit the Square for outdoor concerts in the summer and ice skating during the holidays. Check out the Farmer’s Market on Wednesdays and Saturdays!

Tennessee Theatre
The Tennessee Theatre is a historic movie theater that hosts Broadway traveling shows, concerts, comedy shows, and the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra.

Sunsphere and World’s Fair Park
Get a great view of the city from the Sunsphere Observation Deck or check out a concert at the Tennessee Amphitheater.

The Old City
Restaurants, arts and crafts fairs, festivals, boutiques, and more. There’s always something happening in Old City!

UT Vols
Of course, you can always check out a game at the “other” university in Knoxville!
