What Can You Do In Kingsport, Tennessee?

Chartered in 1917, Kingsport was developed as America’s first “Model City.” Our downtown boasts a wide variety of shopping, unique dining, and cultural experiences that give this very historic section of town a personality of its own.

Take a stroll through the largest concentration of antique stores or fine art galleries in the Southeast. Talk a leisurely walk through our traveling Sculpture Walk, displaying artists’ masterpieces from all over the country.

Enjoy a quaint delicatessen, the world’s best BBQ or other unique restaurants to fit your taste. Our Babycakes Cupcakery is even competing on "Cupcake Wars" on Food Network!

During the summer months, listen to music as the streets come alive downtown! Kingsport’s nationally recognized landmark Church Circle District is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Only minutes from Fox Manor, our guests really enjoy their visits to downtown.
