Bradley County Reviews

It is a great small county with great cost of living. Jobs are plentiful, but not necessarily high-paying. It is a little too conservative and there isn't much to do in Bradley County. Many residents go next door to Hamilton County for better nightlife entertainment and especially to purchase alcohol, since Bradley is a dry county. Otherwise, it's a good place to raise a family and schools are fair.

Fast growing but not enough jobs in the area to support growth. Killing the local businesses with large chains. Families are losing family properties to large corporations pushing to take land.

If you like big city life, it will be there in just a few years.
A family friendly area that has a great atmosphere. I cannot imagine a better place to grow up. I had great friends and a great high school here. This is home no matter where I may travel. It will always have those small memories when you turn the corner which gives you a slight smile that you remember that you grew up here.
