Jellico Reviews

I have only lived close to Jellico for two years now, but I love Jellico. I always see a friendly face and you can't help but to get that small town feeling! There is everything from parks, to history and memorials. I can walk down the main street with my children during the holidays and admire the decor of the season, or we could spend an evening at the library. Jellico holds an annual parade and events for the local schools. If you are looking for that sweet southern hospitality, come see Jellico TN.

There is really not much in Jellico to do. I pretty much just drive through everyday to get to the interstate to go to my job and college. They do have a few good restaurants.
I grew up here in East Tennessee. I rated it as only being okay because there is so much more of the world I would like to see rather being stuck here all of my life.
