Not a whole lot to do in Martin. The UT campus there, I would assume, brings in jobs and some business, but of course it has the cons that any college town does. UT-Martin isn't the wild party school like Knoxville or MTSU though, so the town should be pretty quiet. If you're looking for a nice quiet area to settle down Martin should be good.

If you're into the mountains go to east Tennessee. Others on this board will recommend east TN.

Yeah as the previous post said, Martin's a quaint little college town, but I don't think it's necessarily one of the finest in the state. I don't think there's anything particularly wrong with Martin, but it is fairly isolated, the topography around there isn't nearly as pretty (in my opinion) as the eastern half of Tennessee, and it's not a growing community. But some people like that kind of atmosphere and would be happy there. I, personally, would rather live in a community that's closer to a big city (Jackson TN does not count as a big city), has better job opportunities, and is closer to some mountains.

Basically, if you're not going to work/study at UTM, there's not much point in living in Martin. That's not to knock the area - it's wonderful, and I love it - but there's not much in the way of jobs from what I've seen. The Maryville/Alcoa area near Knoxville is booming right now...plenty of jobs and a beautiful town. It's like a East TN version of Martin, but a bit bigger.
