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.
 
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.
