Hello everyone. My husband is getting a job in Oak Ridge. We are moving from Tampa, Fl and hope to find a great area. I have never been in the area but heard it is beautiful. Any ideas on where to live, Knoxville??? We currently live in a neighborhood with lots of families and stuff to do. We would like the same environment but a little more land. Also the schools are a consideration. Thanks for any help or pictures you can give.

Oak Ridge consistantly has some of the best schools in the state of TN. The public schools there are great! It has one of the largest pools anywhere (at one point, it was the largest in the world, but I think it lost that in the 80s). I loved growing up there, as did my husband and all his brothers and SIL.

If you have some qualms with Oak Ridge, then you might try West Knoxville, maybe Farragut. Nice area, good schools. If you want land, Karns or Clinton are nice areas. I had many friends in the Oak Ridge schools who lives in Karns or Clinton, but their parents paid the tuition to send them to Oak Ridge public schools.
