Getting ready to plant your roots in Tennessee? With some of the country’s most affordable housing and a low cost of living, your wallet will be a lot happier here than it was in California.

If you love affordable housing, low taxes, history, friendly people, music, festivals, fairs, concerts, and nature, then you’ll find that Tennessee is a pretty good fit for California transplants.
