We only went up here for a weekend trip and didn't end up staying the entire time. There is really nothing to do here. You can find some nightlife in Knoxville but it is a ride from Oak Ridge. Overall beautiful town with the mountains but BORING!!
We had to drive to Knoxville because that was where our hotel was. (If you want to call it that. Absolutely awful.) The drive into town was gorgeous the mountains are stunning. We were in town visiting my fiance's son so we went straight there day 1.
"Day 2 worse."
Family CRAZY. Town still gorgeous Big's Ed's was the highlight of this trip but due to the crazy family we cut it short and took off for ATL. Always a good time!
