Discover Beautiful East Tennessee

Located on the Tennessee River with the Great Smoky Mountains as a backdrop, Knoxville serves as the hub of the East Tennessee region and is home to a vibrant downtown area anchored by Market Square and its wonderful local restaurants and boutiques. Revitalized, historic neighborhoods dot the downtown landscape.

Knoxville is surrounded by smaller communities, each with their own character and personality:

  • Sevierville serves as the gateway to the Great Smoky Mountains and the tourist attractions of Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge.
  • Lenoir City is home to Tellico Village, a beautiful golf and retirement resort located on Tellico Lake.
  • Oak Ridge is the “secret city” that was founded as a production site for the Manhattan Project and today plays a crucial role in our national security’s scientific development.
  • Morristown serves as the seat for an eight county area northeast of Knoxville and features a revitalized downtown and beautiful outdoor setting.
  • Harriman, located between the Tennessee Valley and Cumberland Plateau, is a quaint town with a considerable number of restored Victorian homes that hail from when the town was founded in 1889.
  • Crossville sits atop the Cumberland Plateau. Located halfway between Knoxville and Nashville, Crossville enjoys cooler summers and is known as the Golf Capital of Tennessee.
  • New Tazewell in Claiborne County offers many opportunities for the outdoor enthusiast with its proximity to Lake Norris and the beautiful Cumberland Gap National Historic Park.

Financially and academically, Knoxville is a smart place to call home. Our cost of living is 15% below the national average and Tennessee does not have a state income tax. Public schools are excellent, and private schools are also available. Our region is home to the University of Tennessee, and the Tennessee Hope Scholarship will pay for the first two years of community college for students who meet the program’s academic standards.

Whether you’re looking for the bright lights and big city nights of Knoxville or a rural pace of life, our region has it all waiting for you
