If you don't mind spending a fall football Saturday with 100,000 of your closest friends dressed in orange, then you can't beat Neyland Stadium on the UT campus. Not really a bad seat in the house, although to each his own taste. Southern hospitality and Rocky Top had better be on your list of favorites. Parking is the only negative,... More

Hope you like orange! Football, museums, theaters, and more. Friendly people and lots of events. Just don't trust the maps while the campus is under construction.

University of Tennessee....It's great to be a Tennessee Vol! Visit the campus, walk the strip, visit the local restaurants and shops! And definitely catch a football game while you're here!

Visiting for the UT/USU football game, the game day atmosphere at Neyland Stadium and the University of Tennessee is exciting. Even as a fan of the visiting team, we felt welcomed and got caught up in the Volunteer Fervor. The atmosphere inside the stadium is electric. The energy and excitement makes it a great place to watch a football game.... More

Park your car and explore campus. Hopefully you'll be there on a game day so you can experience tailgating, and the big orange spirit.

We were in the area for Boomsday and stayed just off campus to watch the fireworks. Stayed for the football game the next night. My best advice would be to walk or take a shuttle to the game. After game traffic is ridiculous! The people walking a mile away got there faster than we did. Lots of fans and students.

Rocky Top! Big Orange Country!! No matter what you call it, Neyland Stadium is the best place in the country to experience the emotion that is college football. The concessions are top notch as are the views. There is not a bad seat in this stadium. So if you find yourself in Knoxville on football Saturday, grab an orange shirt... More

We visited the University of Tennessee for the Junior National Dive Meet which was held at their indoor pool. The hospitality was amazing and the facilities were state of the art. Parking was plentiful. The snack bar was definitely welcomed because of the long hours we spent at the pool for the events. I would definitely recommend holding another National... More

I've walked around downtown Knoxville and UT campus many of times. It seems quite a few other reviewers are confusing the two. I hate to say it but UT is routinely rated as one of the ugliest campuses in the United States and I agree with it. It is fairly bland and at times industrialized. There are not a lot... More
