I strongly feel that Knoxville, TN is one of the best places in the US to grow up in and raise a family. While some may say my opinion is biased because I was raised in Knoxville TN and personally chose to raise my own children in Knoxville TN, it has so much to offer.
From a Family perspective, Knoxville TN is a top notch place to raise a family- great environment, reasonable cost of living, moderate climate, great schools, close proximity to parks, and unsurpassed environmental beauty are just a few reasons. One of my favorite things about the Knoxville, TN area is all the wonderful FREE things there is to do in and around town. With Knoxville having over 81 public parks, 65.35 miles (and more coming soon) of paved Greenway Systems, 7 public dog parks, and abundant waterways there are tons of family friendly activities available. Below is an interactive map featuring just some of the many FREE Family Friendly Fun Things in Knoxville TN.
