Looking to relocate to the Knoxville area, been up many of times but never made it out to the Morristown area. How is it? How are the schools? We have 3 kids a 11 yo girl, 7 yo boy and a 4 yo girl. Finding a job isn’t a issue we both can transfer. We want to be within an hour to a bigger city but still have a small town feel with all then amenities.

Thank you,

Morristown has some issues. The town has struggled with higher than average unemployment for years. It's not particularly close to larger areas, either Knoxville or the Tri-Cities. There has also been an immigration component there rarely seen in this part of the state that makes some people uncomfortable. There aren't going to be a lot of transplants there and there isn't that much to do. Morristown will have the basics, but anything more is a drive to Knoxville.

Personally, I'd just move to closer to Knoxville. There are plenty of communities that will give you a small town feel, while being closer to Knoxville for its amenities.
