Do NOT move to Knoxville if you're single and over 30

Knoxville is a good place for families raising young children (especially for those who have extended family in the area and are highly religious, and preferably Southern Baptist). However, if you are a single person over 30, you are not going to like Knoxville. Basically, you will be a second-class citizen here because everything revolves around families and children. Also, if you are not Southern Baptist, you will soon tire of living in the Bible Belt. I have to keep my car radio off because of all of the screaming preachers on various stations. Another problem with Knoxville is that it is highly provincial. The people here act as though they've never been out of Knox County. Maybe they haven't. There's not much here in the way of sophisticated performing arts or anything else with class. Well, the Biscuit Festival is coming up. Yawn . . . . Someone once described Knoxville to me as "a pleasant purgatory." That sums it up exactly. I expect to be out of here in two years, fortunately.
