New Years in Knoxville

Sean an I arrived in Knoxville, Tennessee after making our way down from New Jersey.

My primary reason for wanting to go to Knoxville was influenced by an episode of The Simpsons where Bart and company take a kid road trip down to the city. They get there and the city is virtually deserted and their highlight – the sunsphere – is filled with wigs.

Knoxville is a smaller city that I imagined and you could really only spend a half day there and a night.

Even though it’s New Year’s Eve, very few people seemed to flock to the downtown’s center stll lit up with Christmas lights, a small ice skating rink, and some festival activities.

Rather than sticking around for the ball to drop, we headed back to our hotel.

Will we see the sunsphere up close? I hope it’s open on New Year’s day.
