Morristown, TN

Pros: Nice is a nice little community tucked away near Cherokee lake...

Cons: I thought the main roads through Morristown were ill planned with 2 major roads running parallel on the south side...

This is a good place to MOVE TO! We haven't moved yet and have been to Tennessee 4 times in the last 2 years looking at different areas...
