The Knoxville Zoo is a wonderful facility for animal lovers and admirers. Much larger than my own hometown zoo, it offers a large array of animals from condors to hedgehogs. It is a great place to spend a couple hours with the kids.
Knoxville Museum of Art
The Knoxville Museum of Art offers some works by contemporary artists. The museum hosts art camps during the summer months that attract local children. The camps are held next door in the Candy Factory. Admission to the museum is free, but there is a suggested donation of 5 dollars for adults.

The Knoxville Zoo has great exhibitis and walking trails. There is a fun area for children called Kid's Cove that includes a petting zoo.

Big South Fork
The Big South Fork is a park where you can picnic, hike, swim, and climb rocks. It is located in Oneida, TN.
A nice area with shops and has great views of the Tennessee River. It was a nice walk. I was here on a business convention in January. So most of the places along the river were closed down.
