Yes, I know you are right but I think for the amount of flying I would be doing & being close enough to an airport so the kids/grandkids could visit Knoxville/Chattanooga would probably fit the bill.

I am doing the same. Hoping to find the perfect spot for me in about 3 years. Sooner if I can manage it! I was also looking at the Jackson/Savannah area.. But so far no one has had anything to say about that area. Thanks to all the feedback so far, I am starting to look more northeast too.

My wife and I also found allot of great areas right around the Dayton vicinity and south.

The mountain views, lakes, rivers and streams had a major influence on our decision to buy a tract of land in this area. My wife found plenty of different shopping opportunities within a short drive along with decent medical facilities.

Tennessee is a beautiful state with very friendly people who look out for their neighbors. I'm going to be retiring there in the next few months and I'm looking forward to it.
I am thinking of retiring in TN. Are there any areas that you would suggest? A smaller town would be great.

Thank you![/quote]

I was a snowbird for 10 years and decided it was simpler living somewhere in the middle. Cumberland Cove on the Cumberland Plateau is where I ended up. Quiet and private, best move I ever made. I looked at other areas of TN and didn't find quite what I was looking for. As a bonus, my car insurance dropped by more than half and other expenses all went way down.
