Just like that scrappy dog you adopted a bit hesitantly before it wormed its way into your heart for good, the Scruffy City has plans to win you over. Along with plenty of craft beer aficionados, wide patios, and artful cups of coffee, you will find world class, small batch craft denim at Marc Nelson, and the International Biscuit Festival bringing in celebrity chefs from all over. You will find vintage done well here, especially in places like Nostalgia on McCalla, an 11,000 square-foot Retro/thrift emporium. Knoxville is proud of its heritage, never more apparent than when you're sipping on one of 300 scotches from Boyd's & Jig Reel and listening to a pub session or nibbling on Knox Mason's deviled eggs with Rooster sauce and Tennessee Chow Chow. The expansive Knoxville Outdoor Adventure Center urges you to capitalize on the natural beauty of the Valley and its surrounds. Go ahead and get your shoes muddy. Don't worry, K-Town has sophistication as well. Just ask folks about the speakeasy downtown inside the gorgeous Oliver Hotel.

In Los Angeles, buyers may have to look exclusively at inland foreclosures. But in Knoxville, Tennessee, $140,000 buys a 1,750-square-foot, four-bedroom rambler on a pretty, tree-lined street.
