I thought this was interesting. Knoxville is in the Top 10 as a "value travel" destination, according to a Hotwire index.
Well, it's even in the Top 5.
1. Denver, CO
2. Greenville-Spartanburg, SC
3. Raleigh-Durham, NC
4. Knoxville, TN
5. Tampa-St Petersburg-Sarasota, FL
6. Albuquerque-Santa Fe, NM
7. Orlando-Daytona Beach, FL
8. Reno, NV
9. Dallas-Fort Worth, TX
10. Los Angeles, CA
The Hotwire Travel Value Index ranks the 50 most-visited cities in the US for visitor value. Each city is scored in three categories (on a 100-point scale):
Low rates on air, rental car and hotel
Discounts on air, rental car and hotel
Affordable entertainment and overall appeal
Course, there's no point in visiting a city if you live there, right? Some of the other nine in the Top 10 looked like fun places to go.
