Quality Lifestyle

 

When asked about the advantages East Tennessee has to offer, business owners always mention the region’s quality of life.  East Tennessee’s natural setting and its people offers something fun for everyone, from sophisticated city life to peaceful, rural settings; from opera to bluegrass; from UT football to hiking in the Smoky Mountains. 

With a cost of living below the national average and one of the lowest overall tax burdens in the U.S. (Tax Foundation), the region offers a moderate climate, excellent educational institutions, outstanding healthcare, and low crime rates.  Knoxville has been cited by Places Rated Almanac as a ”most livable city.”
