This is the most wonderful place on Earth. It is near the Smoky Mountains, has lots of lakes, and is the home of the University of Tennessee. It’s easy to get around, the people are friendly, the food is good, and everything is wonderful.
Go to a University of Tennessee football game. Visit a Calhoun’s restaurant. Enjoy yourself!
I love Frisco, specifically Frisco Square, with its cozy vibe. It’s a small area, but it has great restaurants, a library, movie theater, and senior center to keep it alive. In the winter, the whole place is alive with lights that create a very picturesque scene.
The people and restaurants stand out. The people are nice wherever you go, and there is a diversity of delicious restaurants, whether you’re looking for casual or formal dining.
I love Chattanooga Tennessee. It’s such a amazing City. There’s so much to do and great places to eat. We love the Tennessee Aquarium. The city has a small-town feel. We enjoyed riding the transportation system in downtown. One of my favorite places to eat was sticky fingers barbecue. Unbelievably good food. When we go to Chattanooga I we stay in the Sheridan Hotel. It is a great place to stay.
Chattanooga is just a beautiful city. It is so close to the mountains. Awesome river bear by. A lot of attractions in the city. Lookout mountain is not too far off. Rock city is near by. Lots of hiking and camping nearby. It’s a great place to visit.
As you can imagine, we’re going to see quite a few cities in the heart of Texas on this list. We begin our list of cities in Texas in the conservative, wealthy Dallas/Fort Worth suburb. This is home to football, churches and money. It’s very middle class, white, and suburban.
As a whole, Texas is the 10th most conservative state in America, although when you’re in most of the rural areas, you’d think you were in Ronald Reagan’s living room.
Collin County, where Plano is, overall, leans republican, and Plano proper is 55% conservative. This city of 270,000 is exploding population wise, but there are rumblings that this once very right leaning haven is getting more and more blue over time.
It will be interesting to see if that really happens.
It was an awesome place to visit. I felt totally safe and the weather could not have been any better.
The food was outstanding. Getting around the city was easy and the roads were in perfect condition.
