I'm from TN, here's what you need to know.
Best town imo is Knoxville. It's pretty nice, and crime isn't too bad. The university is there, and there's usually quite a lot to do. Plus you're close to the mountains.
I was born and raised in Chattanooga. Crime can be bad, especially gang violence. The city is still a little segregated, and there's some racial tension. It's a b***h to commute in. There's constant traffic, and the roads s**k. It does have its upsides though. Downtown/river walk and north chatt are pretty neat. Lots of outdoorsy stuff nearby.
Nashville is Nashville. You got lots of rich people. Obviously very government heavy. It's probably the city with the most to do.
Memphis, well you should probably avoid if possible. Only go for Elvis and then gtfo. Memphis is crazy.
Everything in between is pretty rural. There are some smaller, charming little towns. People usually keep to themselves, and try and go about their business. But there's lots and lots of m**h.
I'm from Knoxville and not gonna lie, we've had shootings, wrecks, m**h labs in the back of Wal-Marts, and s****y weather, but at least we're not as bad as BAMA or FLORIDA, s**k it!
I live in Knoxville. You forgot to put this shithole on the list of worst places. The homeless junkie population mix in with retarded drunk students should have been enough to get knoxvegas on the list.
I live in Tennessee Knoxville to be exact and i love it
I'm from Knoxville and can't wait till I get back to Memphis.
This is the most wonderful place on Earth. It is near the Smoky Mountains, has lots of lakes, and is the home of the University of Tennessee. It's easy to get around, the people are friendly, the food is good, and everything is wonderful.
Go to a University of Tennessee football game. Visit a Calhoun's restaurant. Enjoy yourself!
