It was great here in Kingsport up until 1995ish. It slowly went downhill from there. After Katrina, the sorry blacks started rolling in. Then we have those atheist northerners for some reason that wants to live amongst us hillbillys that they make so much fun of. Basically, a bunch of sorry ass people that trashed their own communities move to other nice little towns and destroy them too.

Really? I never thought of Kingsport as being a high crime area. I've been to cities up in Pennsylvania and was scared to death.

I never see anybody selling drugs on street corners or street walkers. Of course if you go into some "neighborhoods" you would probably see it. I'm not going to say what kind of neighborhoods I am talking about but use your imagnition...

Never hear of anybody being car jacked around here either. Although I will admit meth and presciption drug abuse maybe higher here than in other smaller cities.

I've lived here all my life and personally think Kingsport is a fairly safe place to live than some of the bigger cities. I mean there is only 50K people that live in the city limits.

Just like anywhere, stay out of the "bad" neighborhoods and people's business and nobody will bother you. What I mean by that is, the rural areas can be worse than the urban areas because people out in the stick use junk cars as incubators for growing pot and make meth so be careful pulling into someones driveway if your out in the boondocks.

Taxes seem to be lower as far as property tax and registering cars. Housing prices is not too bad. Sales tax is higher than average, like 10% but there is no state income tax. Any big purchases you can drive across the state line to Virginia and pay 4%.

Not a lot of traffic jams. You don't have to spend one hour stuck in traffic on your way to work. I live just 10 miles from my job and can be there in about 15 minutes. Although Sunday commutes take the longest due to old farts driving LTDs and Buicks 10 miles below the speed limit.

Climate is not too bad. It can get hot and humid in the summer (95 to 100 degrees) and not a lot of wind (except in the spring). Tornados do happen but not was bad as in the flatlands of central and the western part of the state.

The winters are nowhere near as bad as up north like this past winter. Maybe a couple of 6' snowstorms then the roads are clear by the next day. Typically it doesn't get below 27 degrees at night in the middle of January. But it mostly rains and is cloudy throughout the winter which can cause the wintertime blues. For me anyway.

Kingsport is somewhat of a boreing place to live. Not a lot of stuff to do. A lot of lakes and golf courses so if fishing and golfing is your thing then I guess it could be interesting.

Not a lot of good ethnic resturants around here. Mostly burger joints, steakhouses, Mexican and Chineese resturants.

Typical run of the mill places to shop.

Not a lot of high paying blue collar jobs.

As far as the smell is concerned. Well like I said I've lived here all my life and have grown numb to it.

The best thing about Kingsport-I don't live there. The worst thing-all the welfare trash downtown.

That's only a "rush hour," you don't see real traffic jams around here very often. When commuting Stone Drive, just go at a resonable speed, don't bump into each other and you'll be fine.You won't get through faster, without being a d!ck-head, and you knew what to expect, when you chose Stone Drive. Often, you can just "go the other route" and avoid it altogether.
Once in a while, a major collision may cause a jam for a while. Many folks around here want the whole road, and they'll head-on, if you don't watch out. Or at least sideswipe you while passing you if you're moving too slowly for them.

The negative comments about DB High School are common from those in the surrounding areas. It's age-old jealousy at work. Dobyns-Bennett has always been the best high school in upper East Tennessee. In fact, the entire Kingsport City School System has consistently been ranked as one of the best in the State for decades. When I lived in Knoxville, I had to send my kids to private school to get a decent education and, it wasn't even on par with DB.
