Hello all, I hope everyone is having a great holiday season. I am hoping to move to to Eastern Tennessee this summer (if I am able to get a job). I am currently going to school for Early Childhood Education, and will be graduating in May. I am going to start sending out my résumé in February all over the place. Even though I am doing this I still have some questions about TN, mainly about what areas are good for 22 year olds to get out and meet people. I want to live in a medium/small town but be close to the city. Any advice really helps. I'm not sure what other information I should give.

Thanks

What immediately came to mind was that there are only a couple of good sized cities in East Tennessee... the Knoxville and Johnson City areas, although the JC area is a lot smaller than Knoxville. You might want to consider either of those, tho, because both are college towns, and would be much more likely to have the active social life you would like. Anything much smaller, such as Morristown, would be a bit too small to have many options for social life. Also, if you prefer to live on the outskirts and have a short commute to work, either JC or Knoxville seem like the best bet. Also, you are much more likely to get a job in a larger population area. Good luck!

I like Chattanooga a lot. Their downtown has a good bit of nightlife and is very clean.

Anytime someone says "city" and is referring to a city in the South I realize that their perspective may be different. Ashley, I see that you live in a small burb of Tampa. For example, Knoxville is half the size of Tampa just in the city limits. I'm from up north and use to live in Florida. I now live in Knoxville, seat of the University of Tennessee. It is a small city but a lot of fun for a young person - although it is great to live here at any age.

Everyone thank you for your responses. These are all areas I have actually been looking at too. Hiknapster, Tampa honestly is way too large for me. So half the size would be perfect.
