Relocating to a new city can be exciting, yet overwhelming. This is especially true if you are not familiar with the area or do not have family or friends locally. As someone who relocated to East TN not knowing anyone myself, I understand your concerns and what you are about to face. Leaving Virginia, a place I had called home my entire life, was a daunting undertaking but I was optimistic about what Knoxville had to offer. I put a lot of time into researching the greater Knoxville area, I had a trusted Realtor help guide us during our home search, and most importantly trusted God to lead the way to our new city. Our only regret was not moving sooner.

Market Square offers an abundance of dining options, including patio dining where you can bring your four-legged family members.

There is a vibrant nightlife as well - enjoy a specialty martini at The Vault cocktail lounge, or a craft beer at Abridged Brewing.
