Elizabethton should have plenty of mountain views, especially as you head on the highway toward Hampton/Roan Mountain.

Yep sorry I should have mentioned that. My point had more to do with Colonial Height and Gray.

Yeah, neither one of those really will. You might be able to see Bays Mountain from some of the subdivisions around Rock Springs and Sullivan South, but not from the heart of Colonial Heights proper. Gray is an upcoming suburb of Johnson City that's nice for its quick access to Johnson City and Kingsport.

Guess I'll never understand the idea of moving to the mountains and having no views of the mountains.

I don't completely understand it either, but for some I think it is just proximity. They are close enough for the hiking and other outdoor activities associated with the mountains. We don't have a view right now, but plan on it eventually. I'm thankfully able to enjoy the views every time I'm out and about town though.

Honestly most of the houses in Johnson City don't really have a view of the mountains but the great thing about JC is that going about your daily life around the city you see the mountains. There are some places in the heart of JC that have amazing views.

This^
I am actually right on the right on the edge of a knob, sunk in the middle in a small valley, so I'm too close to have a mountain 'view' from my house. But every day I have nice views from many different vantage points here in Bristol too. Even a simple trip to the grocery store means I get to watch the smoke rising from the mountains when the weather is right.

Yeah I should have clarified. It would be great to find a house with a view in JC but I understand that may not happen. As mentioned by others a drive down any street will give you a view, only a matter of time. When we visited Bristol, then Colonial Heights and Gray we never saw mountains as we drove around. That to me is the big difference between JC/Jonesborough/Elizabethon and the other areas.

Dave, I think you may have missed the best parts of Bristol! My neighbor uphill from me has a spectacular view of the Holsten mountains from her deck. I think after the leaves drop later this year I will try to take some pictures of the mountains from Bristol.
