Adjacent to North Carolina and Virginia, the Tri-Cities (Kingsport, Bristol and Johnson City) is an undiscovered gem. The area offers a superior quality of life, rich history, friendly people, large lakes and a beautiful mountainous terrain. The economy is growing and so is the population, but not too fast. This hidden treasure is awaiting you.

Education. Each Tri-Cities community has its own highly acclaimed public school system, and a number of private academies also serve local students' educational needs. There are several universities with the largest being East Tennessee State University. In Johnson City, there is also a medical school and pharmacy school.

Real Estate. Affordable housing options abound in the Tri-Cities, which features property taxes below the national average and very reasonable costs.

Family. The Tri-Cities is an excellent place to raise a family, given its good public school system, its charm and values, its many school -age sports opportunities sponsored by the cities of the region and its exceptionally low crime rate. Families have more disposable income since Tennessee has no state income tax.

Culture. Music has a strong presence in the Tri-Cities (Bristol is the birthplace of country music), as do other performing arts, historical venues, and regional fairs and festivals.

Recreation. Hiking, fishing, hunting, biking, white water rafting, skiing (both water and snow) and wonderful climbing opportunities in the nearby Appalachian Mountains are among the recreational pursuits enjoyed by Tri-Cities residents. For NASCAR fans, Bristol International Speedway is located right here in Bristol, Tennessee. In the fall, a ninety minute drive brings you to UT Football, an obsession of the region, closer to a religion than a sport.

Weather. The Tri-Cities has four distinct seasons and a moderate climate; average summer highs are 85 degrees, while winter lows are 26 degrees. Fall foliage is often spectacular and always enjoyable.
