Well oak ridge has nice weather, great schools and its probly one of the nicer places to live.
Avoid roads starting with W, Like Wadsworth, and behind Kogers, ( We call it the valley) Also Don't live in Rolling hills or the manthans they all are very drug infested. Unless that your thing.
But Like Where i Live ( In the A part) Its a quiet place to live, the most that happens around my house is when an old person falls down and need do go to the ER.
I think Oak ridge is best blend of a big city meets small southern town, I just wish they did not close our mall down :(
Also Oliver springs is really close to oak ridge, and its more of a southern town, about a 10 drive.
and Clinton is more of a city type feel to it, great people there. But I would never live in knoxville.
But If you buy a house in oak ridge, find E tennessee and California that area is great if you have family,
Tara hills is great for single and couples, and if you have the money go for Rivers run, or the other side of town, where West outter ends, Some good nice housing out there.
But For a good 3 bd ( Normally one bath) house, East drive, The roads starting with A IS great, I think 202 Alhambra Road Is for sale still, Its a nice place to live. Lots of Kids and friendly people.
I hoped this helped
