Not even close. The Smoky Mountains are huge and dwarf the Ozarks and the Ouachitas. But parts of the Ozarks and the Ouachitas resemble the rolling hills of West Tennessee and southern Middle Tennessee.

The OP didnt ask about "size." And I still maintain that any recreational opportunities that exist in the Smokys also exist in The Ouachitas and Ozarks. Tourist traps, trout fishing, hunting, fall foliage. For that matter Branson Missouri, part of the Ozarks, is nothing more than Gatlinburg west.

To each, his/her own opinion.

You might have to make your decision based on where employment can be found.

You need a job to buy groceries.
You can't eat---scenery !

Branson is much more like Pigeon Forge -- not like Gatlinburg at all. Gatlinburg is quaint and walkable. Branson isn't.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned crime. Little Rock's is staggering. Not quite as bad as Memphis but very, very close.

Yeah, the River Market is nice but I'd rather be in Market Square, Knoxville after dark.

I've talked to hundreds and hundreds of people in Little Rock and not one of them said they liked living there and quite a few said they hated it, even the natives.

I'll take the Knox County library. I've always been able to order any book that I wanted.
