Life in Knoxville

Knoxville, the third-largest city in Tennessee, is nestled at the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains and close to the state’s eastern border of North Carolina! The town, known for its southern cuisine, breathtaking scenery, and enthusiastic sports fans, is ideal for those seeking a simpler lifestyle. In just one hour, you can enjoy a getaway in Gatlinburg/the Great Smokey Mountains, or if you like football, the Vols play every Saturday in the fall. Tennessee offers a multitude of outdoor activities including skiing, snowboarding, kayaking, white water rafting, fishing, and countless hiking and biking trails to name just a few. Additionally, Tennessee has no state income tax and a low cost of living. Knoxville is filled with excellent schools and parks and the suburbs are enriched with history, culture, and many outdoor activities. If living within city limits excites you, then Knoxville is a great place to choose! But if you’re ready for a slower-paced life on the outskirts of Knoxville, settle in one of the many beautiful rural communities just outside of the city. This is a wonderful place to raise a family in a safe environment. Plus, this area of the U.S. enjoys all four seasons and is surrounded by glimmering lakes, rivers, and majestic mountains that provide year-round seasonal activities for all!
