Our Community

Geographically speaking, Tri-Cities Tennessee/Viginia includes the area’s three main hubs: Bristol, Johnson City, and Kingsport. These three cities, known as the Tri-Cities, are approximately the same size in population and area and are spaced equal distances from Tri-Cities Regional Airport. Further comprising the region are approximately 40 communities scattered throughout 14 counties in two states.

The Tri-City Aviation hangar is just minutes from any of the three Tri-Cities, each home to a wide variety of activities, shopping, and great food.

No matter where you choose to explore during your time in the Tri-Cities, you’ll find plenty to enjoy!

Downtown Johnson City

Our Southern Hospitality


Each of the Tri-Cities has its own unique downtown full of locally-owned shops. Check out The Pinnacle just 15 miles from Tri-City Aviation for over a million square feet of shopping, restaurants and fun.


No matter what kind of grub you’re in the mood for when your flight lands, Tri-City Aviation is a short trip from it! Try our real Southern home cookin’, international fare, or the famous Ridgewood Barbecue 13 miles from the hangar.


Our region is proud to be the birthplace of Davy Crockett, country music and even the Long Island Iced Tea (depending on who you ask)! The Birthplace of Country Music Museum in Bristol is a great new addition to our lineup of cultural sites.
