More Magazine Love for Knoxville

Knoxville continues to receive outpourings of affection from regional travel writers. Now, Atlanta Magazine joins the group hug. In its July issue, Maria Carter writes, "Since 1982, K-town has been quietly turning its downtown warehouses into hipster bars and boutiques, repurposing its historic buildings, and cultivating its Appalachian roots. It was local before local was cool, and the national media, from the New York Times to Garden & Gun, have taken notice." Well, the revitalization really got going closer to 2002 than 1982, but we'll take it.
