The three cities are Bristol, Johnson City, and Kingsport. (Technically, Bristol is two cities: Bristol TN and Bristol VA.) The Tri Cities airport is located right in the middle of the Tri Cities in Blountville. If you can afford to fly in or out of that airport, it's great because it's not crowded at all and has tons of parking.

Tri-Cities is in the North East corner of the State. It consists of Johnson City, Kingsport and Bristol TN. The airport is technically in Bluntville which is just north east of Johnson City on Hwy 75. It is a small regional airport and rather expensive.

That's funny that you both answered the same thing at the same time! LOL! Thank you, both of you!

I heard rumors on here that the Tri-Cities airport may get larger, or become a major hub, like Nashville. I'm coming to like that area also, around Tazewell, Kyles Ford and Sneedville, and have seen some property listed online that looks pretty good. So, as we'd be driving down 81 anyways on our way down, why not look up in that area also! We'll spend a couple days in that area, a couple of days looking north of Cookeville, and if we've time, to run down to Chattanooga and check out the Old Fort/Cleveland area.

I also spotted a couple of places about 30 - 40 miles west of Nashville, but I can't tell if that's mountainous or not - I can't seem to find a topographical map. Centerville (SE of Nashville) and McEwen ( W of Nashville), but McEwen is too far out - Centerville ---- maybe, but I think it may still be too far out for me to work at LM in Franklin/Brentwood - but, good for my hubby to work in the Nashville area with higher pay. *sigh!

We'd really need about 2 weeks to check the 4-5 main areas that I've been looking at, but I won't be able to get that amount of time off already, plus we wouldn't be able to afford it, unless we sleep in the SUV and cook on a BBQ grill in the KMart parking lot! We'll just narrow it down by that time to 3 areas and check things out.

Anyone here familiar with SW of Nashville, about 30 - 40+ miles out of Nashville? What's the topography like? I definitely don't want to get into the flatlands, as we're hill/mountain folk.

blessings, Shen

If I recall Centerville's lake country, again -- if my memory's not failing me at 3:30 am -- it has Center Hill Lake and Marina. It's fairly flat but then again I grew up right outside the Cherokee Nat'l Forest so I am rather snobby when it comes to mountains.

If you're going down I-81 from Tricities to Knoxville(beyond), you should stop and check out Greeneville too. Gotta rep the hometown, yo.

Thanks! We'll check it out while we're there.

Hello again, Shen. I'm a big fan of the Tri-Cities region but not of the airport. It is so expensive that people who fly a lot should really locate closer to Knoxville or Nashville. Also, the area you mentioned west of Nashville consists mainly of rolling hills. The nearest mountains are an hour or more east of Nashville by I-40. In case you are interested, there are many nice campsites throughout the state and especially in the state parks.
