Lake City Reviews

1 review
Lake City, now known as Rocky Top, is somewhat a dying town. I grew up here, but the atmosphere is very negative. The schools in the area are average, and I received a good education. There are a few restaurants and some businesses that bring some life to the town. The state parks nearby are a very nice tourist attraction.
