Located just outside of Knoxville, Tennessee, Oak Ridge is diverse in culture and varied in landscape. Often called the Secret City because of its history of being secretly founded in 1942 specifically to research and help create the atomic bombs used in World War II, Oak Ridge is today one of the world s greatest research centers. It also has one of the top-ranking public school systems in the state and offers cultural amenities as well. It is said that Oak Ridge had a symphony before it had sidewalks. The American Museum of Science and Energy lets visitors discover first hand why Oak Ridge was built and learn about the technologies it has produced. For recreation, there are 16 local parks strategically located within one-half mile of each residential area, and the Clinch River that borders Oak Ridge is great for boating and fishing.
