Winchester is a nice little town in the outskirts of Tennessee. A lot of friendly people live here, and just up the mountain is Sewanee, where a beautiful landscape and school awaits. However, Winchester is very run down for teenagers. There is nothing for young adults to do in Winchester besides drive around and waste gas. Winchester definitely needs more business teenage wise.

There are a lot of local dine in restaurants there and shopping centers. They have lots of Banks and Doctors Offices, Industrial Factories which is very good because there are plenty of employment opportunities available. I would like to see a Boys and Girls Club built there in Winchester because the youth doesn't have activities that will keep them occupied. It will be great for the youth to be encouraged by the community to Be Great and Successful at everything they do.
There is nothing for the youth to do in town. There is no growth in the community. Although we have a lake lifestyle community, it is the only activity around town and it is not accommodating to a less than luxury lifestyle. Although we have new growth in residents there are not a lot of options for going out on the town. There is a lot of room to grow and many improvements needed to have a more opportunistic town for its citizens.
