Around Town

There’s no shortage of things to do here in Oak Ridge!

Nestled in the cross section of where Interstates 40 and 75 meet, we are within a days drive of 75 percent of the United States. Bring the family for an educational and unique history lesson showcasing our role in the Manhattan Project that ended WWII, get a glimpse of the places that contributed to the most significant scientific breakthroughs of all time, play with hands exhibits on at one of our museums, take an historic tour via bus or train, or burn off some steam at one of our beautiful natural outdoor venues.

Want to eat where the locals eat? Check out the best spots in town for local flavor, whether its pizza or homemade soups, tasty bagels or a country breakfast, visitors can get a taste of Oak Ridge at many of the locally owned restaurants in town.

Be sure to check out our Events page for more fun things to do while you are here as well. Celebrate our history and heritage at the Secret City Festival in June, join a race, find an outdoor Summer concert, attend a lecture or see a play. You won’t have to look far, because something is always happening here!
