I love the town of Union City, Tennessee. This town has been my home since 2002. There is plenty of nice and courteous people. The students are exceptional and the athletics are unique. You have a small variety of entertainment to choose from, but there are plenty of restaurants and fast food. We are also known for our fair every year.

Most of Union City is great. But the neighborhood we reside in is not friendly. (Sherwood Hills) Pleasent Valley would be great though. I think crime is becoming more involved in this town each day. It seems that everyday there is a crime in the newspaper that was committed here. Last year there was even suicide in our neighborhood. There is a lot of history here. Most small business owners are very friendly. But DPA, (Discovery Park of America) is worth visiting, but after one time, there's nothing really new. We moved here from Troy, which, in my opinion is much better. I would choose to live there over here. Trimble would be my top choice, I know everyone there because they are all family of mine. I know once I live on my own, this will NOT be the town if my choice.
I have lived in Union City all nineteen years of my life and absolutely love it. The people are kind and welcoming, and it is a quiet and small town. My only complaint is the low amount of employment options. The town has created a museum called Discovery Park of America but has hardly done anything to expand it or advertise it in the way it needs to be. I feel as though they may have wasted a lot of money on this museum rather than bringing real jobs and industries into this town. This is eventually going to cause people to leave.
