On the topic of the thread, Johnson City is largely overlooked but is a great city and a college town as well. Some of the bohemian vibe of Asheville trickles over the mountains into certain areas of the city.
Embrace your roots. Cincinnati runs deep in Appalachian culture and to deny it is being disingenuous.

I have a friend and former colleague that took a faculty position at E TN State. It was a great move for his career, but he was less than enthusiastic about moving from a major metro to Johnson City. Turns out he loves it! Apparently JC is a well-kept secret.
