Real Estate Blog Names Manchester As One Of Tennessee’s Most Exciting Cities

manchester-signAny state that can turn out the likes of Morgan Freeman, Dolly Parton, and Elvis has got to be pretty darn exciting—and we didn’t even mention the barbecue.
With all of Tennessee being so exciting, how could you possibly pick the most exciting places within its borders? Well, that’s where the Movoto Real Estate Blog team comes in. Movoto, in their latest report names the 10 most exciting places in Tennessee:
1. City of Knoxville
2. City of Chattanooga
3. Nashville-Davidson
4. City of Franklin
5. City of Johnson City
6. City of Manchester
7. City of Maryville
8. City of Memphis
9. City of Gallatin
10. City of Jackson
Movoto started this exciting journey by gathering up all of the places in Tennessee with populations of 10,000 or more, which left them with a total of 59 places. Then, they used the 2010 U.S. Census and business listings to research each place according to the following eight criteria:
• Nightlife per capita (bars, clubs, comedy, etc.)
• Live music venues per capita
• Active life options per capita (parks, outdoor activities, etc.)
• Arts and Entertainment per capita (movie theaters, festivals, galleries, theaters, etc.)
• Fast Food restaurants per capita (the fewer the better)
• Percentage of restaurants that are not fast food (the higher the better)
• Percentage of young residents ages 18 to 34 (the higher the better)
• Population density (the higher the better)
Manchester may be small, but that only means that it has more nightlife, music, and food per capita than many of the larger places Movoto looked at.
