Come along with me and see a few of the sites!
Enter Krutch Park...
A stream runs through this verdant oasis in the middle of a city.

Now cross the street to Market Square...
Tennessee Woman Suffrage Memorial
(This deserves a post all to itself! more information HERE)
We like to eat at "the Tomato Head" which is farther down on the left.
Market Square is on the National Register of Historic Places. Farmers still gather to sell their products. The Square currently hosts many events including concerts, political rallies (like suffrage in the past), and open air ice skating in Winter. It is a gathering place for families, artists, street musicians, and activists.
a little alleyway retreat between buildings
bell from the old Market House (note police on bicycles)
time to leave the Square and head back through the park
I hope you've enjoyed this little Summer trip to the heart of Knoxville!
