That's not a bad idea. I have some suggestions but go ahead and start a thread. Since it's in Tennessee, it's heading towards the middle of the country. I forget what the statistic is. Something like Tennessee is a day's drive to 40 percent of the country?

But there are a LOT of things to do that are close by.

Nashville, Chattanooga and Asheville are all easily accessible from Knoxville. Heck, even Atlanta is only 3 hours away.

...and Knoxville is 154 miles from Atlanta - about as close as Greenville to Atlanta.

As you mentioned earlier...Knoxville to: Asheville, 80 miles; Chattanooga, 97 miles; Nashville, 159 miles...even Charlotte is 185 miles. I would agree that it's in just about as good a location as Greenville.

Um Knoxville is About 200 miles to Atlanta. Its a good 3 hours. Greenville is about 2.5 hours on a long day. It all depends on where you consider Atlanta to begin. From Greenville you don't have to go through any other cities to get to Atlanta unlike Knoxville where you have to drive through Chattanooga.

We're still talking day trip vicinity. A few minutes shouldn't be THAT huge a deal.

I'd give Greenville the edge though since it's closer to the coast.

Um, no it isn't...try using this, it's a little more accurate than your estimations: Calculate distance between two locations

Did you think I just made up those distances?
