We lived off of merchants in a new neighborhood! We left! We moved north of the city. The town is nice and you have some good people, but as with all larger cities Knoxville has its issues.. It does have areas in it that are very dangerous and as a whole people take things way too seriously... Knoxville is not an industrial city. It lost its industry in the 90's, so good paying jobs are few and far between. Now comparing the city to Miami, Pittsburgh or Seattle I'd rather live in Knoxville. For the most part it still has values and morals. It has beauty to it. Mountains surround the county but if I were moving to Knoxville I'd live in the halls area, because west Knoxville is too expensive for what you get and most there try to act like something their not... They'll even go in debt to their chins just so you'll think their rich, but their in debt!!!

West Knoxville is by far the nicest area, but it will cost you. 3-4 bedroom homes go for 300-400k. But, you pay for what you get. West Knox has low crime, shopping, and the best schools.
Hardin Valley and Farragut are two OUTSTANDING public high schools in west Knox County. The rest of the high schools in Knoxville are not even comparable.

East Knoxville should be avoided at all costs. Drugs and gang-related crime occurs often. Not a good area.

North Knoxville- not dangerous particularly, but schools aren't great.. Kind of run down

South Knoxville- horrible schools, crime

Downtown is a very nice place to live and/or visit. Not dangerous and has a lot of good restaurants/shopping.

I generally feel like people are welcomed, no matter where they are from. The people of Knoxville are generally friendly. This is overall a great place to live.

I would love to hear about Knoxville and the surrounding area. We are from FL living in NorthWestern TN in a rural area- not liking it so much...looking for a little urban but some nice 'home town' feel...we have younger kids so looking for a nice area with fun things to do for families, shopping,diversity,etc. Would love to hear about the Knoxville area...

Knoxville is a nice town. It's a good place to raise a family. Like most towns you will find both good and bad but over all people are friendly. I'll break it down some. When you get here you will see we break it down to North, South, East & West Knoxville. South Knoxville is the oldest part of town. Lots of old houses and business. As for the schools well they could be better. Good people & most of them are the born & raised here crowd. East & North Knoxville both have older neighborhoods and pretty good schools. West Knoxville is where you will find lots of new construction. New stores, houses & schools. Most of Knoxville's growth had headed west for some reason.

Penny you are a idiot! You herd? Word is? Yes, Tennessee is a southern state but to call everyone in the state a racist makes you sound ignorant. Then to follow it up by saying "everyone" looks like Honey & June? Where do YOU get off judging anyone? Tennessee has a very diverse population and over all is very open minded. What we do is mind our own business and take care of our own. We will also come to the aid of anyone who needs us. We are called the volunteer state. So as a resident of the fine state of Tennessee you can kiss my southern ass. Oh and if you don't like Tennessee stay the hell out of it. We wouldn't miss your ill informed ass anyway.

This place sucks. I have lived in lots of other cities and states and I have never in my life had a harder time making friends. There are tons of religious folks who believe in the bible literally but are nothing but hypocrites. Seriously. I have never met more toothless idiots than I have here and I grew up in KY. Believe me, I will be leaving this shithole asap! There is not much to do and a trendous lack of diversity.
If you had trouble making friends in Knoxville there is a reason for that. People here have the ability to see when someone is trying to hustle them. We have had to deal with way to many interlopers such as your self. Before you call us toothless idiots you might want to look at your own demographic. Kentucky has lower ranked schools, a history of ramped incest rates & more snake charmers than an Moroccan market! Go back to Ken-tuck we'll never miss you seeing how you never made any friends anyway.

Easy now officer.honey...now I know all don't look like Honey Boo Boo and Mama June. It's just at your family reunion, I just saw all your women-folk participating in the pie eating contest, and mathematically came to that conclusion. My bad! If it's any consolation, just loved how you renovated and redecorated your trailer. ; D

Have a nice day!

Honey, I'm the idiot? You can't even differentiate how to use articles in a sentence.

You use "a" before words beginning with a consonant such as "a red neck". You use "an" before words beginning with a vowel, "an ignorant tralier dweller".

White Tennesse Trailer woman has 5 boys and she is being interviewed by a journalist studying hick-life in the south.

Boys playing outside, Trailer Woman, yells "Jed, Jed, Jed, Jed, Jed, come inside, time for dinner!"

Journalist: "Miss Trailer, all your 5 boys are named JED?"

Trailer Woman: "Yeah, why?"

Journalist: "What if you want to talk to them one at a time?"

Trailer Woman: "Oh, then I'll just call them by their daddy's last name!"

SWEETIE, God's country is the South, correct? It was less then a generation ago where church denominations sent missionaries to Africa to spread the Gospel. Yet, had those same African converts come to visit your Tennessee churches, they would not even been allowed! Explain Mama June!

Hey y'all, better ease up on ole Penny! After all she is from Los Angeles! She may have one of her homies pop a cap in your ass. Surely she is a member of a gang since she isn't a rich celebrity. Hey Penny why are you talking to us about Jed, Jethro and Ellie Mae? Those folks moved to your parts, down yonder ways. Sheesh, what an idiot. Blah.
