You can head out to one of their many museums or even to the zoo, or at night head to one of the many bars and listen to live music. Downtown Knoxville is bursting with activity all day and night long! If you need a get away for the weekend with your friends you can head a little more than an hour away from Knoxville to the Great Smokey Mountains! If you have never been to the Smokey Mountains, it is a must! I have to say that was one of my favorite vacations and we plan to go back again!
As a student at the University of Tennessee, you might need a storage facility to store all of your belongings! If you are moving from a dorm to the sorority or fraternity or maybe even to an apartment a storage unit can help you out a lot. Also if you are heading home for the summer and have no place to leave your things finding the best storage deals for UT students can be very easy! You can look for storage units in 37996 that might have 24 hour access and even a free truck rental to help you move your things!
