Retiring in Tennessee

If you’re a music or outdoor enthusiast, retiring in Tennessee may be at the top of your list.  The Smoky Mountains, Mississippi River and Grand Ole Oprey in Nashville are just a few of the state’s attractions.  Plus, when it comes to finances, Tennessee also has some afordable real estate options and most retirement income is tax-exempt.

When it comes to spending your tiem outside, don’t be fooled by Tennessee’s landbound location; it has an abundance of water sources for activites like boating, fishing, white-water rafting, etc. Some of the most popular lakes and rivers include the Cherokee, Norris and Old Hickory Lakes and the Ocoee, Buffalo and Obey Rivers.  But the list seems endless, just check out this map below from


The music scene in Tennessee is famous… Nashville is known as Music City, afterall, and who hasn’t heard of the Grand Ole Oprey? But if country music isn’t your scene, don’t worry. Memphis is home to some amazing blues, R&B and soul music and even in Nashville you can find more than just country music as there’s been a large increase in pop, rock and hip hop.

If travel is important to you, then consider choosing a city that is reasonably close to one of Tennessee’s main airports (listed below). But you may never want to leave!

  1. Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport (CHA), Chattanooga
  2. McGhee Tyson Airport (TYS), Knoxville
  3. Memphis International Airport (MEM), Memphis
  4. Nashville International Airport (BNA), Nashville
  5. Tri-Cities Regional Airport (TRI), Tri-Cities
