Also known as Knoxville, Tennessee, Knox Vegas is the title given to this city in eastern Tennessee by its young adult population, mostly consisting of college students at the University of Tennessee. This is both a play on words with the similarities of 'vegas' and 'ville', and it adds to a notion of fun times to be had by its inhabitants. The sporting events, arts/music scene, and bar life make this medium-sized city seem to be more Vegas-like in its appeal.
