Living in the Tennessee Valley

The natural beauty of the TVA Region provides a vivid backdrop to its thriving economy. Bounded on one end by the 500,000-acre Great Smoky Mountains National Park and on the other by the mighty Mississippi, the Valley is home to a variety of lively urban places and wide-open spaces, with lots of scenic room to roam.
 
National and cultural landmarks abound in the region, from the iconic Grand Ole Opry in Nashville to Beale Street in Memphis and the natural beauty of the Appalachian Trail, which runs through Eastern Tennessee along the North Carolina border.
 
All this access comes without breaking your budget. Despite covering a geographically and economically diverse region, the Tennessee Valley boasts a cost of living below the national average and comparable regional cities.
