Black Male and Trini Female in Atlanta, Mid 30's to Early 40's thinking of Moving to Nashville or Knoxville. Visited both Cities and inquiring which has the most to offer for me in terms of living. Knoxville seems to be City enough but with Mountains. Some awsome MTN Views in Knoxville. Nashville seem to be more City though.

Up to you. I like mountains and have family in Knox so it made sense to me. If you like things bigger cities have to offer, then Nashville may be for you.

BTW, what does Trini mean?

Knoxville is nice and I live close to it, But while it has interesting things to do down town, it does not have a such as Nashville to do. Now if you want a slower life style then Knoxville could be better.

I have to honestly say i love the Cozy Mountain areas around the Knoxville area, would be great in the Fall and Winter Months, just wonder how much is there to do in the City of Knoxville, the diversity level and how is the job market there. I like Nashville but it seems to be going down the same road Atlanta is. Was wondering though does Nashville have some great Mountain views like Knox. At this point i want to be in a city thats not too over done, but can step away and enjoy the beauty of nature but be in a City that has great things to do and can enjoy in the form of entertainment. Not to mention Cozy in the Winter Months. All so diverse enough to embrase all people. For me and my experience, too much of any race is not a good thing. I love seeing a pretty good mix of people. To me thats what our GREAT Country is all about. Memphis is absolutely not an option for me, that place is a zoo and i felt so uncomfortable there, thats why i left it out... Chattanooga is just too slow for me, period.

Nashville has no mountain views because there are no mountains in the area.

There are plenty of hills....some of them more dramatic than others...but there's definitely no feel of being in or near the mountains.

Knoxville has a pretty good variety of people because of the university and ORNL. Many different cultures and people but most (except black/white/Hispanic) are in small numbers. There is plenty to do in terms of nightlife/restaurants unless you like to visit a new place every night of the week.

It sounds like you would like the pace of Knoxville and the way nature and greenways are intertwined with the city.
