A very high quality of life and a very low cost of living. The greater Knoxville area has earned many accolades for economic opportunity and quality of life. In 2010, Forbes Magazine ranked Knoxville #8 on its list of “America’s Best Places To Raise A Family.” Forbes also listed metropolitan Knoxville #10 on its 2008 list of “Best Places for Business and Careers.” Knoxville was one of the “Best Cities for New College Grads” by Business Week in 2010, and Kiplinger named Knoxville #5 on its list of “10 Best Value Cities” for 2011.
Naturally, that quality of living reflects the amenities of the area. But it is even more indicative of the people and the possibilities here. Whether you’re single, part of a family, or an empty-nester couple, you’ll be welcomed into the community. And no matter if you choose urban excitement, well-tended suburbs, a farm, or the solitude of a mountain retreat, you’ll find Knoxville to be a wonderful place to live.
