The lune was shining down on us as we entered the boîte.
“I should’ve worn a different shirt,” I thought to myself.
It was much more chaud, or hot, in Knoxville than in Chicago – I wasn’t préparée for it. Luckily, the reste of the week-end was spent tubing!
This was my first time tubing and it most definitely won’t be my last! To feel the vagues, or waves, bobbing us up and down, and to use all of my force to hang on (I may have been thrown off a couple times) was simply thrilling!
5 Raisons to Spend a Week-end in Knoxville:
- Concord Park. Concord Park offre a variété of activités such as hiking, skateboarding, various sports (soccer, golf…), and The Cove, which offre fishing (and other water activités) in Fort Loudoun Lake. There’s nothing more relaxing than admiring the park while kayaking on the lake.
- Fort Loudoun Lake. Although it’s not a very clean lake, it’s a great way to spend a chaud afternoon!
- Wakeboarding competitions. In 2010, I witnessed the Mastercraft Pro Wakeboard Tour hosted in Knoxville. There’s no better way to enjoy Knoxville than taking your boat out on Fort Loudoun Lake and watching a wakeboard competition.
- Gay Street. Gay Street is the street for Knoxville’s most historical sights such as the Tennessee Theatre. Gay Street is even referenced in Life on the Mississippi by Mark Twain.
- Norris Lake. Norris Lake is not actually in Knoxville; however, the beauty of staying in Knoxville is that Norris Lake can be easily accessed by car. Leave after breakfast, pic-nic on the boat, and be home by dinner: It’s the journée parfaite!
Knoxville is a quaint ville, or city, with quite a histoire! If you ever find yourself in the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame Capitale, be sure to rent a boat and get yourself out on the lake, for Knoxville is best enjoyed whilst on the water. ♦
