Though “The Volunteer State” earned its nickname for sending generous amounts of volunteer troops to battles during multiple American wars in the early 1800s, Tennessee today is known for its natural beauty and musical roots. On the eastern end of the state is the college town of Knoxville, as well as Gatlinburg, the popular resort village that serves as a gateway to the majestic Great Smoky Mountains. Music fans from across the world flock to Tennessee’s two largest cities: Nashville and Memphis. Whether it’s blues, rock ‘n’ roll, or country, the history of American music runs deep through these two cities. Tennessee also shares the most borders with other U.S. states (tied with Missouri at eight), so its central location — along with a lower-than-average cost of living — makes Tennessee an ideal retirement destination.
Currently, A Place for Mom partners with more than 65 independent living communities in Tennessee.
The median monthly cost of independent living in Tennessee is about $2,000.
