I just answered you on your other post hahahaha But as I said, can't think of but a few and those have golf courses, not sure about pools and tennis courts. Other than a few in the Jonson City area that are townhouses/condo type, I can't think of any, but I will make some calls and get back with you.
Happy New Year!!!!

Oh Kingsport is pretty, i was there in August, Took my kids to Gatlinburg, my son wanted to go see the sharks at the aquarium, we stopped in Kingsport at the Fort Henry Mall, just a small mall, but very nice, clean, and I always feel safe there, I take my kids there for Christmas shopping and sometimes school clothes. My family has always shopped alot in Tennesee. We can be in Kingsport, Johnson City in about 1-2 hours, depending on traffic and road conditions.
When we go to the Pigeon Forge, my kids always start crying about the time they see the red walls, I think they are some type of sound barriers, at the point that you leave Tennessee and enter Virginia, we also travel that way to Myrtle Beach, SO when they see those they know vacation is over!!!

Default Hi, those pics reminded me of something!

Thank You Mbmouse, I think those pictures are very cool I remember all the church steeples in my pictures. Got a question for ya?

The last time I was thru that area I went thru Bristol, and as I was walking the downtown I happened to see some sketches in the chamber of commerce windows of the renovations they wanted to do there. They looked awesome, do u know anything about this, and if they were every implemented? This was probably more than 3yrs ago I had been there.

To be honest, I personally don't pay to much attention to whats going on in Bristol. I don't go there much and I don't like the way the town is laid out. From my understanding there are a bunch of political issues that stem from the fact that even though it is one town, it is shared by two states which causes a lot of conflicts.
From what I see on the news, Bristol is very slow to implement improvements, especially revitalizing. I know there was a public argument about what is going to be done with the old train station and that they were talking about making different shops for local owned businesses, but I don't think that has happened yet and that was about 6 months ago.
Sorry, I know that doesn't really answer your questions, but like I said I just don't pay too much attention to Bristol.

In what industry?
Check out the local news paper, that will give you a better idea. http://www.timesnews.net/
Unemployment rate is still very low. Some folks say they have no troubles finding work, others have a hard time, don't know if that is due to resumes, education, personalities, industry type or a combination. Kinda of mixed right now,some say great local opportunities, some say very little.
