About 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
  • 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.

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

Knoxville or a rural pace of life, our region has it all waiting for you
