    Community - Clinton, TN (Knoxville area)

    Surrounded by seven lakes, with the Smoky Mountains National Park located only 45 minutes of town, Knoxville is nestled in nature and steeped in history. Boasting of more than 20 museums and 7 historic houses, the rich historic tapestry is on full display. Knox County's population is less than 200,000, with residents enjoying a cost of living that's lower than the national average, reflected in reasonable housing ($124,500 medium home value), utility and transportation costs. Home of the University of Tennessee, (go Volunteers!) Knoxville's population is fairly young, which is due in part to a large number of college students, as well as a high number of young families. With more than 55 parks, seven farmers' markets and a full roster of music and sporting events, Knoxville offers all of the amenities of a big city, with all the affordability of a small town. Another perk is that the state of Tennessee has no income tax.
