This is without a doubt a college community. The entire metro supports its beloved University. If you love collegiate activities and sports Knoxville may be the place for you. As for where to live, for the best quality of life - downtown Knoxville is the spot. If you like suburban life, then you may want to look more towards west Knoxville and Farragut.
West Knoxville is home to all the major shopping and retail. Downtown is home to the University, several major concert venues, tons of great eateries, several great parks, and is located only 30 minutes away from the Great Smokey Mountains.
A very one-sided community on religion and politics
Poor air quality
Still needs to improve walkability (too many four and five lane roads in downtown)
Low cost of living
Great chance for growth in the future
