Review of Morristown, Tennessee

Not for the 20-35 set
Star Rating - 7/27/2012
I've lived here for about 22 yrs, the best of those being from age 5 to 18. Morristown is a great place to raise a family or retire to but if one is to "get ahead"...forget about it. This town is made of a specific job set (manufacturing, food, medical, and retail). Most of the people out of high school end up moving to Johnson City, Nashville or beyond to further education and "get out".

If you are a single, educated person looking for places to meet like-minded individuals, maybe partake in culturized activities, it doesn't exist. Unless you are under 18 or over 35/40 there isn't anything to do. Some people enjoy small town living but if you need culture to entertain your mind, don't like everyone knowing your business, or want to make a decent wage, don't move here.
