"Greg must be one of those peace loving, compassion"

Greg says that Knoxville, "with 62% Retardicans.........how good a place could it be to live????? Bushies, righties, conservatives are not a political ideology - but a mental disorder!!!!!!!!!! Support of Bush is tantamount to committing treason against the U.S. of A.!!!!!!!!!!"

Greg, that is a horrible, mean-spirited thing to say. Remember, people are usually just a reflection of our own attitudes. Show kindness and respect to others and we will usually get the same response in return. But if we walk around with a chip on our shoulder, hating people because of their political views, we are not going to be very happy, fulfilled, productive people.

We have been to Knoxville on several occasions and always found it to be very pleasant. As far as the people and weather are concerned, we enjoyed both. And, no, we are not native to the region, but we would not rule out a possible move to the area in the future..........all the best.....Glenn & Mimi

Knoxville is a nasty place to live - 11/6/2013

I have spent moved a lot so believe me when I tell you that Knoxville is one ugly place. It is dirty, the air is filthy, the water is disgusting, there is radioactive waste in groundwater, cell phone towers and power lines protruding from the landscape, meth labs galore, nuclear plants, uranium plants, body farm, traffic, radon in half the homes, and a ridiculous housing market that is so inflated it's almost criminal. The people who live here are some of the most unattractive people I have ever seen. Many are deformed and mutant like. So not only is the city itself rated the ugliest city in America, the people are too.[read more...]

Huge mistake moving to this hell hole - 11/6/2013

There are so many reasons to hate knoxville - filthy air,radon, lousy water, traffic, hillbillies, cell phone towers every 5 feet, power lines every where, nuclear plants, uranium plants, body farm, and ignorant sloppy people. Now one would think that with all the other negatives to the area that one would be able to find a nice home for a reasonable price, but you would be wrong. The construction quality is criminal at best. No one up dates their houses yet they ask prices as though it were midtown Manhattan. The also act like they are doing you the favor by taking your money for the crap house. House hunting in Farragut in particular has been the most miserable experience to date and we have moved many times. The entire experience has been so bad(which I won't go into on this post) that I have been advised to lodge a formal complaint with the board of realtors. So do not be fooled into thinking that Knoxville is a nice place to live, it is not[read more...]

Knoxville is a horrible place to live - 10/25/2013

Knoxville is a horrible place to live. The people are mean, noisy, dirty and they will rob you as soon as look at you. They absolutely hate people from anywhere other than Knoxville. Yankees are scorned from the minute you open your mouth. My wife and i have lived here for over 18 years. We are finally moving back to the north where we belong. Jobs are scarce if you don't work for the university or one of the crooked utility companies. Traffic is horrible because every hillbilly with a car thinks he is a race car driver. With two interstates crossing roads here, the pollution is unbearable. Please, don't move here. YOU WILL REGRET IT.[read more...]

Never Move To Knoxville - 9/26/2013

I hate Knoxville, been here since May and it is nothing but a dirty town with fake people, poor job opprotunity, and no activities for a 19 if you aren't enrolled in the college. Diversity here goes straight from White Trash to Ghetto to Hipster. I am doing all I can to get back to Nahville where the lifestyle is actually enjoyable[read more...]

Nice city - 7/8/2013

We are relocating to the Knoxville area for several reasons! It's a nice area, the political climate is conservative and even though there are more democraps in Knoxville than the surrounding areas there aren't enough to cause the fiscal and social catastrophies they cause wherever they predominate, and can be. controlled with roach spray! The cost of living is quite reasonable, I have the right to defend myself and and the gun laws sane! No income tax is an attraction and plenty of jobs for those that actually want to work! Since we don't call 911, there is zero concern about the crime rate and someone mentioned that they were a former Knoxville police officer and that crime is under reported..... I have to note that minor crime is categorized and under reported in every jurisdiction, but it's tough to hide violent crime and really those numbers tend to be statistically correct! We are leaving the northeast because of the absolute infestation of democraps, fiscal insanity, insane taxes, stupid and flatly ineffective gun laws, a society devoid of manners and an overall preponderance of ignorance.[read more...]

Good place to live - 1/25/2013

Four seasons , inexpensive, below average unemployment, entertainment from college football and campus culture (University of Tennessee) to opera and everything in between. Interstate highway main junction means easy to drive anywhere. It is a 30 minute trip to the Smokey mountains, 7 hours to the beach. Every chain store and restaurant in existence available in Knoxville plus local restaurants, including 5 star, and shops. Numerous hospitals and Doctors are available.[read more...]

Life in Knoxville - 10/29/2012

Home grown, corn bread feed. No place like Knoxville, If you came here and didn't like it I guess you just don't like the finer things in life. True Tennesseans are the most awsome people you will ever meet.{ Meaning thoes born and raised here.} You have to love football and the song Rocky Top, Be down to earth. Most of us dont put to much thought into culture things. We have lakes and streams and beautiful Mountains, Gatlingburg, and Dollywood and a whole lot more. Restaurant's galore, what ever kind of food you like we'll have here somewhere. I have lived in other places and I always come home. We have a lot of different religion's here what ever your's might be I'm sure you will find your church. Most people here don't live in the fast lane they like to smell the roses as we go by. Knoxville has a little bit of anything your looking for if you'll take the time to find it. This little town has the same problems as any other. I dont know of any place you can live crime free,& drug free. Now on the down side /Kids run wild in the city streets, { I think most parents have to work and aren't home to keep up w/ them } Traffic is awful, crazy weather, not a lot of good paying jobs,{ they are out there if you have a good education.} I might add we have several mall's. Walmart is where most people shop. When tragety hit's we turn out in great numbers to help. [read more...]

Wonderful place. - 10/2/2012

I have lived in Knoxville since 1994. I moved from Fresno, CA after retiring from a career in Law Enforcement. The quality of life is so high here it's off the charts. I actually picked Knoxville as a place to retire and I'm glad I did. Wouldn't live anywhere else. Lots of activities for families and I'm never bored with plenty to do in this part of the world.[read more...]

Religion - 6/27/2012

This is a very religious city. On the surface it isn't as evident but, it ties people together here(Christianity). If that's your worldview this is a great place, if not, you will hit brick walls in most relationships including:business interactions and general group ventures.[read more...]

Don't Knock Knoxville - 12/12/2011

Heres is my take on Knoxville: Easy to drive around; Lots of scenic beauty; I find Tennesseans friendly and polite. I think the culture is family friendly and conservative and slow. Pace of life is slow. It helps if you like UT Football. Cost of living is low and so are wages. Downtown is rundown unfortunately. No state tax on income. Sales tax is 9% across the board. I feel safe here where I live although there is a low income section on the other side of town. Art museums and culture events on low side. I grew up close to NYC and have been all over the US; I really like it here. But it is not for everyone and onr would do well to know what you can live with and what you can't if you are thinking of moving here. [read more...]

The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly - 10/10/2011

The Good: Knoxville has the main campus of the University of Tennessee. This is a city that supports college sports, especially football and basketball. Neyland Stadium at UT seats approximately 108,000 people. The stadium is almost always filled to capacity during home games. Knoxville is close to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. There are great shopping centers and malls here, too. The Bad: Two cross-country interstates (I-40 & I-75) run concurrently through the heart of the city. When you add all the local traffic, you have a nightmare. Even a minor accident on the Interstate can result in a traffic backup that runs for miles. TDOT recently completed the final phase of its Interstate upgrade so that there is no longer a bottle neck of traffic in downtown which used to have fewer lanes. But there is still far too much traffic to battle if you are a daily commuter. Air pollution is another problem. In the past, Knoxville has been on the EPA's "dirty dozen" list for the worst ozone and fine particulate pollution in the country. This is a bad place to live for people with asthma or other respiratory problems. This has been stated in the local media. I'm sure the excessive traffic has something to do with this. The Ugly: There are many area in downtown and elsewhere that are a real eyesore. The downtown is not attractive and the development was done in a rather haphazard manner, in my opinion. There are many very old neighborhoods that look like ghettos. But the people who live there can't afford to live elsewhere. The city is a contrast between the rich and the poor.Crime is high here compared to the national average. Also, the cancer rates here are significantly higher than the national average, possibly because of all the toxic waste from nearby Oak Ridge (one of the sites of the Manhattan Project to develop the atomic bomb). My recommendation: Forget about Knoxville. I have lived here for 22 years and I know from my travels and my research that there many other places that would be far better than Knoxville. Happy hunting.[read more...]
