While many would say that La Follette, TN isn't the best place to live in the world, I would have to disagree. From great food to great people, there's no place in Tennessee quite like La Follette.

LaFollette is a very political community, I love the town but the way it is ran is very disturbing. LaFollette is a very pretty community it has it's pretty places and it's ugly places. Poor community alot of drugs
The area is extremely beautiful in scenery. There are mountains and valleys wherever you go and plenty of places to eat. However, this town appeals to quantity over quality by places many fast food restaurants and banks over enjoyable things such as finer dining and fun indoor activities.
