A small town in southwest Virginia that reminds you of that girl in your math class who is very pretty and sweet, but doesn't have much to offer beyond that. Young people in Abingdon learn to entertain themselves, because the alternative is just too terrible. Popular activities include recreational drug use and blowing up things they find at the grocery store with fireworks.
I'm from Abingdon. Of course I know what a tilapia with a roman candle in it looks like.

A city in NE Tennessee where people in the Abingdon/Bristol area go to find the stores and restaurants that everywhere else in the country has. It is often affectionately referred to as "Jesus City" or "the City of Johnson."

A small city which is divided over SW Virginia/NE Tennessee via State Street. It has a NASCAR track, and thus is the bane of many existences for a few weekends a year, because out of town race people are crazy drivers, rude customers and frequently drunk in public.

Residents frequently complain of there being nothing to do there, but this is only because they don't live in any of the surrounding towns.
Quit your bitching. Bristol is where Abingdonians go to have fun.
