The Cost of Senior Living In Tennessee
Tennessee’s four largest cities are Nashville, Chattanooga, Knoxville, and Memphis and you’ll find there are more care options in these cities. Tennesseans enjoy an economy that lets them stretch their dollars. The state and local tax burden is just 8.3% and the state has the 2nd lowest overall cost of living in the country. Because there is no state income tax, Social Security, pensions, military retirement and IRAs are not taxed. The median household income is $41,725.
Tennessee’s overall crime rate is 23% above the average national rate. Eighty-five percent is property crimes while the remainder is violent crimes. The overall crime rate in Memphis is 170% above the national average; Nashville is 64% above the average.
If you don’t mind hot summers with some humidity, Tennessee can be a pleasant place to retire. The winters are cool but rarely snowy. Nashville’s normal January high is 46 degrees; Chattanooga’s is 49 degrees. The mountains in east Tennessee get 16 inches of snow per year on average. July normal highs across the state run from 88 degrees to 90 degrees.
Tennessee’s rich past will certainly interest the amateur historian. From the early Frontiersmen to the Civil War to the Manhattan Project, Tennessee has played a major role in the development of the U.S. If you’re active, the state has a handful of state parks to explore including the Trail of Tears Trail, Appalachian Scenic Trail, and Cumberland Gap Historic Park. The big cities have all the amenities you’d expect from metropolitan areas like symphonies, theaters, and music venues.
