Visit Knoxville and see for yourself! - 1/18/2015
I have not lived in Knoxville but I have visited it several times. My husband was there for 3 weeks last year to open a new restaurant. I came and stayed with him while he was there. I found Knoxville to be very pleasant. We are from the north, well Ohio so not THAT much more north than Tennessee but I digress. I found the people to be extremely nice. We are HUGE Ohio State Buckeyes fans and one of us is usually wearing something with an OSU logo on it. In other cities we have lived in or visited, we've encountered rudeness and taunting simply because we wear our scarlet and gray proudly. This WAS NOT the case in Knoxville. We stopped at a Dick's sporting goods store to pick up a UT Volunteers shirt for our son. He likes to collect college shirts from all the places we've been. Of course, my husband was wearing an Ohio State t-shirt. A random guy shopping at the store stopped us and we had a lovely conversation about college football. He was a life long resident of Knoxville. Then, at Read More

Knoxville, TN - 10/7/2014
My opinion is that Knoxville has so much to offer to all types of people. If you love to cycle/walk/run, we have great greenways. Have a boat? I can't begin to talk about all the great areas you can explore by boat...Norris Lake is my favorite. Pull your boat right up to the marinas for food and entertainment. Whether you are single or have a family, there is something for everyone. Market Square in downtown Knoxville and The Old City are definitely worth a visit. Night life is great as well. Movies on Market Square, Boomsday (google that), Mardi Growl, Biscuit Festivals, Chili Cook off, Rossini Festival and soo much more! Also we have Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg within a short distance. No boredom to be had here. There is always something going on in AND around Knoxville that you are sure to find plenty of life out there within a short Read More

Murfreesboro vs. Knoxville? - 8/5/2014
I'm debating between a teaching position in Murfreesboro and Knoxville. I am a single 42 year old who is a personal trainer & fitness competitor, and enjoys being involved with church activities. Can anyone recommend one city over the other? I'm relocating from St. Pete/Clearwater, Fl. Ideally, I'd like an area that offers southern charm, friendly folks, festivals, restaurants, sporting events, hiking, boating, and biking/runner friendly. Of course the potential for meeting quality, Christian men would be an added bonus!
I'm torn between the areas surrounding Murfreesboro and Knoxville!

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 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 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 Read More

Great medical facilities
No better place if you love ORANGE
It is a paradise for young and 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 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, Read More
