What Bert Has To Say About Knoxville Metro Area

Knoxville, the largest city in eastern Tennessee and home to the University of Tennessee, serves as a gateway to the tourist and recreation destinations of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park to the southeast. The 400-acre university campus with its 26,000 students is located along the waterfront just to the southwest of downtown, and adds a notable college-town element, particularly during football season.
