What is your favorite city in Tennessee?

I have family that moved to Tennessee 3 years ago. They moved to a city called Milan. Pretty close to Jackson. About 2 hours north of Memphis and 2 hours south of Nashville. They like it there. Pretty cheap ($150,000 house compared to the $500,000 one they had in California), not alot of traffic, country living, people are nice. I myself might be joining them out there in the future.

Lol, this poll is going to contain so much bias.

I picked Chattanooga. Love the water there and the mountains as a backdrop. I just find it very pretty. And the 'city' is great. They've done such a great job cleaning it up. The people are very friendly. And there's so much to do!!! I went down with a friend a few years back and we had so much fun. Even had a perfect stranger offer us free tickets on the boat there since his friends didn't show up. Was a wonderful boat ride BTW - very informative and entertaining!!

$150,000 isn't bad. Depends on where you go. We've got nearly 10 acres and a 5 bedroom brick house southeast of Nashville, north of Chattanooga and paid well under 100k five years ago. VERY rural area, but it's what we wanted. CA is one of the most expensive states for real estate and I think TN is probably one of the least. It's VERY reasonable living here.

Milan is a dying town. Pretty soon that $150,000 house wont be worth $100,000. All the industry in Milan has either recently closed or is fixin to. And the Milan cops are Nazi,goose stepping pigs with 8th grade educations who got thier jobs because of who they are related to. So the town is populated by inbred cousin/sister boinkers. Welcome to Milan!

Wow, I'm guessing someone got a ticket recently.

i must admit im drawn to eastern tn in general for its beauty, but after driving through a small part of knowxville im not sure that would be the city for me...mabe sevierville outside of the tourist season.

from what im told id probably like chatanooga, but nashvil also quiet impressed me in terms of acess to everything...

that being said im NOT a city girl and just bought a home in Finger, about 30mins south of jackson and so far im LOVING it out here. im close enough to jackson, selmer and savannah that i can get anything i realy need or want, but far enough out that its quiet and rural.

some people dont want bustling main streets, nightclubs and big booming factories...
me, i like seeing all those stars at night and feeling safe...
If i want those things i can drive to them but i dont want them on my doorstep.

The beauty of Knoxville is that I can live within the city limits and yet my neighborhood looks just like the small town I grew up in. The downtown core is beautifully restored and revitalized although it only seems slightly larger than an average town of, say, 25,000. To me it is the best of all worlds; I can find lots to do regarding festivals, the arts and yet I can hike through the neighboring woods or enjoy the 43 miles of greenways, untold amount of parks, dog parks. And through it all are the friendly people, progressives, staunch conservatives, many, many libertarians that coexist.

I'm absolutely shocked that Nankipoo isn't an option here...

Honestly a lot of the towns on this list have the potential to be favorites, most Tennessee cities have really, really good bones. Only a few, Nashville, Chattanooga and Knoxville, have really stepped up and are growing into the new kinds of municipalities that we will need in future decades. Memphis and Kingsport also stand out as having started that process, but for reasons unique to each, there's still somewhat of a lag.

"Downtown is close to spilling out of its border," he said. "For the first time in 50 years, we're close to the point where downtown can reach out and have a quality development that contiguously connects with all of the inner-city neighborhoods.

"When they physically connect and there's nothing but quality that spans and links the two, you'll see higher property values and a higher quality of life."


-- Downtown developer: 'We've got to finish the job' Knoxville News Sentinel


And we're all getting there. Even in stunted Johnson City, we're starting to see large-scale downtown redevelopment plans and infill projects (650 new bedrooms just opened between the university and downtown, with hundreds more on the way in a new project and in a development that will retrofit old General Mills buildings).


Knoxville, Chattanooga, Johnson City and the smaller towns in between also have the huge added bonus of being in the backyard of the beautiful Appalachians! Obviously, it's hard for me to pick just one favorite TN city
