Atoka Reviews

I moved to Atoka at the end of December 2016, with my family. We live in a quiet neighborhood across from the Atoka Elementary School. I fell in love with the town almost instantly. It's small and quiet. My father is military so i moved around frequently as a teenager but i spent the majority of my life in a small town just outside of Chattanooga, Tn. I'm a country girl. There's just something about the sounds of frogs and crickets that takes me back to when things were simple. The overall feel of Atoka helps me not to miss my hometown so much and although it is small almost everything you need is right here or within a short distance in either direction.
Review Atoka
Living in Atoka for the past 12 years, I found it a town full of community spirit, leadership, and positive economic growth. The Mayor and Alderman are genuinely concerned about the wants and wishes of the residents and strive to their utmost to meet the needs of their constituents. In a timeperiod wherein the nation as a whole is lacking respect for their fellow citizens, Atoka is a breath of fresh air. Everybody is "in it to win it". There is relatively no racism and helping your fellow neighbor no matter race, creed, color, or religion or wealth stature, is the main goal. It's all about lending that helping hand. It's all about family values and teaching the young right from wrong in any context. I am proud to call Atoka my home.
I have lived here for 14 years. We love the small town feeling here. We love the safe schools and family friendly neighborhood for our kids. Wish we had more restaurants to eat at. We have to drive to Millington or Memphis to eat at a sit down restaurant. We love that there is no mall to add to the crime rate here. We love small town living!
