What You'll Get
Take this opportunity to learn about and see the city up close with a knowledgeable local guide on this comfortably paced walking tour through Knoxville’s Downtown areas. The huge Downtown revival over the past several years has transformed beautiful and historic buildings left vacant for decades into residential condos, specialty boutiques, and modern restaurants. Paula’s tours include a detailed historic tour of the city, along with food tastings at up to 4 restaurants or specialty food shops, enough for a meal for most.
This tour will start at Market House Café, on Historic Market Square, a business that pays homage to Knoxville’s Market House, which was the center of agriculture commerce and social activity from the 1850’s to the 1950’s. While there you will be treated to fresh and local juices, local roast coffee, and scratch made specialties. From there we will visit a selection of rotating restaurants where you will be served specially selected Southern Appalachian dishes such as fried chicken, biscuits, gravy, stone ground grits with a variety of savory toppings, or local favorites such as waffles or omelets created with locally sourced ingredients. This tour will end with sweets on Gay St., traditionally Knoxville’s main business and financial district, now home to billion dollar companies and restored theaters. You will have time after the tour to go back and explore any shops or boutiques on Market Square or stay in town to attend a show at one of the historic theaters along Gay St.
