The Great Lakes of the South. Ever heard of such a place? That nickname affectionately refers to East Tennessee, where seven large lakes and countless rivers combine to create a whopping 220,000 acres of water! Together the bodies of water form over 4,500 miles of shoreline and result in unlimited recreational fun!
In the heart of this water paradise lies Knoxville, Tennessee. Referred to as “Knox” by the locals, there’s hardly a water activity that can’t be enjoyed in, or just outside of, the city.
