Hey all, I've heard some good things about Tennessee, I work in a field that can pretty much take me anywhere I want to go. Right now I live in Provo Utah, it's cold and unfortunately for some reason, a lot of the people tend to be snooty, shallow, and trendy. I realize there are people like that everywhere, but it's very rampant here, even Salt Lake is way diff. than Provo, I don't like being surrounded by people like that. But I've been told that people from Tennessee are some of the friendliest and most down to earth people in the USA. I'm just curious if there's a fun college town or area to live down there, I'm 24 and I'm graduating at the end of April, and I'm just looking for a down to earth laid back area to live and enjoy the last few years of the bachelor life. Tempe AZ. Austin TX. are among the few, but if it's a nice a place to live as I've been told, maybe I'll try Tennessee. Thanks for the feedback

I have only lived in Nashville, TN and Las Vegas, NV. They are polar opposites, but I now know I definitely appreciate the ways of Nashville. We're not a small town, but here we still have that small town appeal with big city conveniences, for the most part.

When we moved here from NorCal, it was between Nashville and Austin. After a few days checking it out, we decided Austin wasn't as good a fit for us as Nashville.

Never looked back, we love it here! Friendliest people you'll ever find.

There's not much skiing here ... Gatlinburg has skiing ... that's about it.

I'd hate to see you move to Tennessee and die ....

Default thanks

that sounds good, I can live without skiing for a couple years, It's getting almost too expensive anymore.

College Towns... good for a bachelor life... I would look into Nashville, Knoxville, or Johnson City. All of those would have a "Southern Hospitality" feel.
