Greeneville is a beautiful town in rural east Tennessee. If you are an outdoor enthusiast, then this town is right for you. The Appalachian mountains are right at your doorstep. There is also an abundance of lakes and rivers in the area. The schools are great, and Greeneville High is a cut above most schools in the area. Your never more than a 45 minute drive from larger cities, such as Knoxville, Morristown, Kingsport, and more. It isn't without its drawbacks though. The drug presence in the area is considerable, and it lacks in diversity. All in all though, its a great town to live.

Overall good place to live. City & County Government is somewhat non-progressive. A very few really good restaurants, most are mediocre at best. Not a great lot for people to do. Elected officials cater to a select few in community, operate on the "good old boy" principle. City and County schools are very good. Most young people move due to a lack of good paying jobs. I am a lifelong resident.
Very beautiful, low crime great place for children. 2 excellent colleges in town. Everything is very close . Not many resources but more jobs seen to be coming each year. My kids love it, I love it. You got city and country life here. Best of both worlds!
