Sevierville, Tenn. – Featured in this month’s issue of Where to Retire magazine, Sevierville, Tenn. has been named one of the country’s top destinations for retirees, citing the affordability of the area, as well as the variety of things to do in the city, from attractions to shopping to a wide selection of outdoor activities.
“We continue to experience an influx of retirees moving here, who visited the area as a child or brought their own children here on vacation,” said Brenda McCroskey, CEO of Sevierville Chamber of Commerce. “It’s a testament to the experience we offer to visitors and the friendliness of the people in our community.”
Sevierville has proven to be a great match for retirees who value easy access to a number of outdoor activities, including hiking in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, boating on nearby lakes and casting lines in the trout-filled streams of the mountains.
The city also caters to those looking for a slower pace of life while still having access to certain amenities, like world-class shopping, museums, vineyards and wine tasting rooms, as well as locally-inspired restaurants and dinner shows.
“Sevierville, hometown of singer and actress Dolly Parton, has risen from its impoverished past to become an eastern Tennessee star. It is a gateway to Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the most visited in the country. The Little Pigeon River flows through this area, east of Knoxville. Affordable neighborhoods for retirees have sprung up, and thriving tourism means year-round superb dining and shopping for locals,” said Where to Retire editor Annette Fuller.
The profile on Sevierville is featured in the July/August issue of the magazine, which is on sale now.
