There are quite a few states known for their beautiful landscape, and Tennessee is one of them. What cities have you visited in the state? I have traveled there numerous times, and I had the privilege of living in Murfreesboro TN for six years. That is where Middle TN State University is located, and it was at one point one of the fastest growing cities in the state, only 30 minutes outside of Nashville via Murfreesboro Road or I-24.
While I have an affinity for Murfreesboro, there are so many great cities in TN. Nashville just might be the best, depending on what you’re looking for. You have the mountains and beautiful country to the east, and you have cities like Knoxville, Memphis, Chattanooga and Gatlinburg. TN reminds me a lot of Kentucky where I grew up. I spent 17 years in Kentucky, but that doesn’t mean my six years in TN pale in comparison.
During that time, I enjoyed many concerts at the Starwood Amphitheater. I didn’t finish my degree at MTSU, but I subsequently finished up at Texas State years later. Are you thinking about taking a trip to the Volunteer state? There are also great small towns to visit, such as Cookeville and the historic train depot there. TN is also a great place to settle down and start a family because there is a little bit of everything there. Pick a big city, small rural town, your personal oasis in the mountains and much more.
You will find that the cost of living is quite low in comparison with many other states. What do you know about Tennessee history? Stones River Battlefield is in Murfreesboro, and it is highly significant in regards to the Civil War. In fact, there are landmarks, battlefields and other attractions throughout the entire state related to the Civil War.
Do you know when Tennessee became a state? Are you familiar with its professional sports teams? I told you about MTSU, but what are the other major colleges and universities located in the state? How are real estate prices there? What is the job market like there?
Your interest in TN is appreciated, and you should take action. TN is a state worth looking into, again, whether you’re just visiting or wanting to move there. It was the first move I made of my adult life, and I will always have great memories of living there and continuing to visit there as well.
