The Civil War Gateway is the start of the Civil War walking tour and you can pick up the information booklet at the visitor centre to have a little lesson in history yourself. The tour covers most of the highlights in the downtown area and is easy to follow with enough room for you to take breaks and really seep in the history of the city. Guided tours are also available by prior appointment and if you love to tour with groups, this is a preferred way of learning about the Civil War and its influence on Knoxville.

Civil War Gateway Reviews & Ratings
I chose University Park over other competitors in the area majority because of the warm welcome I received from the staff and the courtyard that's perfect for my dog. It's a great value to be this close to UT's campus, and the bus pass and route that's offered to residents here is absolutely better than a parking pass and way cheaper. I moved into a partially vacant unit, so the common area wasn't as clean as I would have liked, but the staff genuinely did their best to get it to my standards. And the three random roommates they matched we with turned out to be a great fit.
My daughter has lived here for almost 3 years now. We LOVED how clean the apartment was when she moved in (especially compared to UTK dorms). We know how it is to live in student apartments: rude/ dirty roommates, broken appliances, etc. The office and maintenance have been willing to help my daughter out anytime she has had any problem.
Lalita and the staff here have been very great to me the whole time I've lived here. Very welcoming. Always greeting you with a smile.
Was pretty excited to live here until I saw my actual unit. The model unit you see is not at all what the actual units looked like. We have extremely worn carpet (stinky, stained and moldy) and disgusting linoleum tile (very stained) floors. The "updated units" are a myth, at least for us. When we moved in, the place reeked of smoke, incense, and mold and it still does because nothing has been done about it despite several requests. They keep telling us that they cant just pull up the carpet even though they have done it in several of the updated units. But hey, at least there aren't bugs, right? Wrong actually. When the weather gets even a little warm, prepare to kill 3-5 bugs per day, even on the third floor. Sure its cheaper than most other places, but what you save for on monthly rent is quickly made up for in your utilities bill. My roommates and I are very good about conserving water and energy, but we still rack up a utility bill of nearly 200 dollars most months due to the extremely inefficient appliances and god awful insulation and windows (they are so thin I can hear conversations in the parking lot from the third floor). All in all, it isn't that much worse than many other apartments around here, but I would recommend to keep looking for other options. Some units are upgraded and do look fairly decent, but if you get stuck with one like ours, prepare to smell like a smoker trying to cover up the scent with lemon pledge every day. I know much better can be had at the same price point if you and your roommates don't need the individual leases.
Best apartment near the University of Tennessee Knoxville! Lelita has been so helping throughout the process.
