Union City has unique attractions like the Discovery Park of America and Dixie Gun Works that add a special value to the city. It has a variety of entertainment outlets like the Masquerade Theater and Graham Park. The small town feel of the city provides a cozy atmosphere to neighborhoods and provides close relations with business-people. On the other had, in a city of 10,000, there is a limited selection of retail stores and there is also no public transportation.

What I liked about Union City was that many places were relatively close to where I lived; therefore, not alot of stressing about getting somewhere quickly. A thing that I would change would be more places to shop/ work; and more activities to do.
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.
