Norris Reviews

Norris is a small quiet little town. It is perfect for growing families. They are very focused on community events. They have an elementary school and a middle school. The local high school is only ten minuets away from the middle school. In the summer residents can enjoy going to Norris Dam State park and to Norris lake, which can be fun for the whole family.

We looked for a house in Norris for about 3 years before we found the perfect house. Once you move here, you don’t want to leave so there aren’t many houses for sale.
I have enjoyed living near the park and being able to walk and hike. I live nature and there is plenty of that hear. Family and pet friendly. However if you enjoy the nightlife or any life other than family this city is not for you. It is very safe and the kids can walk around freely. Very peaceful area.
