When visiting Vonore a person will be struck by the unique beauty, lush landscape and Smokey Mountain scenery. Vonore is surrounded on three sides by the Tellico Lake. The majesty of the water with the foothills of the Smokey Mountains in the background is ever present in any direction you wish to look.
Boating, Fishing, Hiking and Camping, are just a few of the attractions and sports that can be found in this community. The legendary “Dragon” for motorcycle enthusiast is located only 10 miles from the city limits. Living accommodations to suite anyone’s taste and comfort requirements can be found in and around Vonore.
The people of Vonore consist of a vast array of backgrounds, from the farmer who grew up on the very land he now lives and tends to the retired person who found this “diamond in the rough” while surfing the internet for a retirement community to move and enjoy away from the hustle and bustle of the fast corporate and city life styles.
Vonore offers the largest industrial parks in Monroe County (Tellico West and Niles Ferry Industrial Parks) with employment opportunities for all ages. Vonore is proud of its Public Library and happy to have anyone who enjoys reading to visit the library in person or via internet to check out books and other written items. The Heritage Museum houses a wide array of artifacts from families and years of history of days gone by. The City Mayor and Aldermen are very community minded and welcome everyone to their special town.
