I spent 16 years living there. The people are friendly, helpful, and religious. The music and barbecue are delicious. I lived In Memphis right by the Mississippi River, and the river views were lovely. The mountains in East Tennessee are strikingly beautiful. The spring flowers and fall leaves are spectacular and winters are short. Summers are very hot. The worst thing is the mosquitoes, which are huge.

If you’re considering buying a place there, check the local property taxes first. We didn’t, and found that we had to pay property taxes to both the city and the county. Those who lived outside the city limits had much lower taxes.

No. Pretty much everything East of the Mississippi is shit except for Maine.

They are building like crazy in Nashville. Everyone is moving there or nearby. Taxes are sure to go up.

Mountains? Or more plains?

There are low lands around the Mississippi River, but the views from places like Gatlinburg will take your breath away.
Gorgeous state.

Cool! What was your experience with tornadoes?

Tennesseans complain about tornadoes, but they don’t know what they’re talking about. The weather is mild compared to where I grew up in Oklahoma. Never saw a tornado the whole time I lived there.

Tennessee’s violent crime rate is double the national average. Property crime is almost double national average.

I lived in Memphis where the most crime happens. The crime is mostly in certain bad neighborhoods. If you avoid them, it’s fine.

DSH- stay away from Nashville. It has one of the highest crime rates in America.

Yeah, I’m not a huge fan of major cities anyways...thanks for telling me EB! What about the outskirts of Nashville?

Nashville is just like any major city. It has good areas and bad areas. Look how many people go to New Orleans to Bourbon Street. No problem there but 6 blocks away and you are in a world of hurt.

Yes Glock that’s true about Nashville. However, the state as a whole is crime ridden.
