Not many can say that their hometown is that of music royalty. Born and raised here in Whitehaven Coro Lake, I have the very distinct ability to say exactly that. Known the world throughout for being the location of Graceland, Elvis Presley's famous abode, Whitehaven Coro Lake is this gentleman's idea of the best place on earth. Where else in the world can residents partake of royalty, as is done here. Graceland, the "King's" estate, continues to beckon music enthusiasts from each corner of the world, generating a fervor that after all these years show no sign of dying down.
Even without the presence of a musical icon in the city of Whitehave Coro, Tennessee's reputable status of having the very best barbecue one could hope to find is more than enough to reason to never leave. The rolling hills in combination with foliage which is unique to the area have given rise to an unmatched beauty that entices visitors year round. The selection of schools in Whitehaven and the surrounding communities are more than you could hope to ask for when searching for the perfect community to raise your family in. Shopping is never of consequence, as there are multiple options where groceries can be purchased, the Southland Mall for unique purchases and the states of Mississippi and Arkansas just a short drive away for those items unique to each area.
The community's low rate of crime give residents an added sense of belonging. In Whitehaven, everyone is looked at and treated like family. When my nephews visit during their annual summer vacation, they are hard pressed to want to leave the atmosphere which makes Whitehaven the wonderful home that it is. Activities are abundant whether one chooses to remain home or visit either of the two neighboring states. While traveling with my family is always great, the feeling of returning home can never get old when your home is Whitehaven.
