Kingsport is a small city with a population of about 54,000 in eastern Tennessee. Along with Bristol and Johnson City, it makes up the Tri-Cities area. It backs into Bays Mountain and offers stunning views of mountains, hills, and valleys. Kingsport offers a mixture of the best of small-town living and city living. It has many rural areas, homes with lots of land, and a lower cost of living while also offering lots of shopping, hospital systems, jobs, and things to do. It is a great place for those who enjoy outdoor activities!

Kingsport, TN is a beautifully unique city. There is a lot of history to be seen. There is also a gorgeous animal conservatory and park. Kingsport is also home to the famous Eastman Chemical Company. That is the Eastman that used to be partnered with Eastman Kodak. If not for the history and beauty of the mountains, come for the jobs.
