Brief Description (if needed)

The Knoxville entry is found at and includes the following text:

"Knoxville, Tennessee, is proud to claim Daniel Boone, and has evolved into a multicultural community that embraces an array of interesting pastimes. Downtown Knoxville is full of interesting shops like the independent Union Ave Books and the old-time Mast General Store. Cumberland Gap National Historical Park and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, which are both within a 90-minute drive, are beautiful places to go for a hike. Sports enthusiasts will enjoy cheering on the minor league baseball Tennessee Smokies, the Knoxville Ice Bears professional hockey team and the much-hyped SEC-affiliated University of Tennessee Volunteers football and basketball teams."
