Kingsport doesn't have a hot night life, for sure. Yeah, bars and stuff are open, but everything closes, restaurants included at a relatively early hour.
Don't expect to do any shopping after 9pm unless you're going to Wal-mart.
Stores don't open until 11 or 12 on Sundays either.
If your looking for fun- head to Johnson City about 15 minutes away.
