We left Asheville this morning and were sort of lamenting the fact that we never seem to stay long enough. It's cute, it's friendly and it's not frying the rubber off the soles of our shoes - we love it.
But then we stumbled into Knoxville, Tennessee.
It's artsy, it's clean, it's friendly, and surprisingly hip.
We visited Market Square and Dogwood Park (Art In Public Places).
The Italian ices.
We're heading to Nashville now - which will have to ramp up its game, because I'm actually house shopping as we drive.
