Elizabethton is my hometown and a great place to raise a family. With Beautiful mountain views and clear water rivers this town gives you the perfect down-home country feel. Weather you want to come visit or stay Elizabethton has something for everyone. You can enjoy fishing, hunting, biking, hiking, catch a ball game, relaxing on the lake or rafting down the river you will always have something exciting to do in Elizabethton. This small little town is home to a great public school system and very sports oriented. With quaint little neighborhoods this is a dream place to raise a family. I do not think i would be the same person that I am today if I had not been raised in Elizabethton with the values instilled in this area. I look forward to contributing to the betterment of my home town once I have graduated.

My overall experience of this area is just amazing. I absolutely love the beautiful scenery and the nice, comforting people. I would defiantly choose to live here again if I could because it generally affordable and the community always works together in order to live in a better place. This area is a nice and quite community, however, compared to other cities in the country I would say it's in the top ten! This area is slowly expanding, and growing. I can not wait to see what the future holds for this beautiful city.
Elizabethton, TN is a beautiful, safe, place to enjoy the outdoors and wildlife. There is not much socially to do however. Elizabethton, Tn Red Light, Street Sign, Fast Food Capital of the World!
