I have lived in Maryville since 1972 with my husband, Doug and our dogs, Howard, Muggs and Winchester. We love this area and the people here and would choose to live in East Tennessee over anywhere (except maybe Maui). We were transferred here by accident but have remained by choice. The climate, activities, and people make this a GREAT place to live and work.

Maryville is just minutes from the Great Smoky Mountains. The Knoxville Metropolitan Airport is located in Blount County along with four Alcoa Aluminum plants, a huge DENSO car part manufacturing plant and numerous boat and boat accessories manufacturing companies. Jobs here are plentiful and our unemployment rate approaches 3.5.%. There are several lakes for excellent bass fishing and boating, lots of streams for fly fishing, beautiful mountain trails to hike and lots of outlet shopping!
