I really like the apartment complex I live at in Louisville, TN. The complex has affordable washer and dryer services at the laundry facilities on site. Also, I like the on site swimming pool in the summer. Rent is affordable and it is local to shopping places.
Review Alcoa
I have lived in Alcoa, TN for my whole life and I love it. The people here mostly are friendly and there is always places to go, there is malls, restaurants, and movie theatres. Alcoa is not too big, but not to small. When I go on vacation I always get homesick and cant wait to get back to my home in Alcoa.
Alcoa is a small town so it is a great place to live if you are not looking to live in a big city. However, it is easy to run out of things to do around town because it is not a big city. It is next to the cities of Knoxville and Maryville which are bigger cities with more to do.
