Knoxville Summer Fun for the Whole Family

  • Go on a safari! Briarwood Ranch Safari Park is open in Morristown, and your little ones will absolutely love seeing all of these amazing animals.
  • Regal just released their lineup for the Kids Summer Movie Express. All movies are $1 on Tuesday/Wednesday in the AM all summer long. Check your local theater to find out the specific time. (Currently listed as 11:25 AM EST but call to double check!)
  • Believe it or not, you can still see movies on the big screen! Parkway Drive-In Theatre in Maryville is already open!
  • Let your kids cook you a meal for once, or at the very least, learn to cook yourself a meal at FlourPower Kids Cooking Studios!
  • Take a free trip up to the observation deck of the Sunsphere. (closed currently, stay tuned!)
  • Zoo Knoxville just opened the new Clayton Family Amphibian and Reptile Conservation Campus (ARC). Make sure to check it out!
  • Where’s Waldo? You tell me after you participate in the Where’s Waldo Scavenger Hunt downtown during the month of July.
  • Enjoy a First Friday at least once this summer.
  • Spend a day giving back to the wonderful community you live in.
  • There are tons of putt-putt options just across the way in Pigeon Forge, but if you want to stay close, play a round at Sir Gooney’s or Putt-Putt Golf & Games.

Fun at Home

  • Let your kids set up a lemonade stand (or something else fun) and consider visiting and donating the proceeds to any of Knoxville’s great local nonprofits.
  • Buy all the things at the Dollar Tree, and craft until your heart’s content. Or for that matter, let your kids go crazy and give them $10 to spend.
  • Visit your nearest KARM and buy some board games or puzzles for a family game night!
  • Let Dolly Parton read your kids a bedtime story.
  • Have a Retro ’90s Family Movie Night from the comfort of your own home. Or you if you really want to up your game, rent a projector and have an outdoor movie night.
