Crime & Safety
- Public Schools
- Private Schools
I moved to Memphis about 3 years ago from Florida. We decided to build our first home and looked into many cities to build in and agreed with going to Bartlett. We love it! We are far enough to feel like we live in the country but literally a light away from everything such as the mall, restaurants and stores. Bartlett is known for their amazing public schools which was a huge deciding factor considering we will want kids in the future and when our house alarm was acting up the cops were at our house within 5 mins.
I love living in Memphis. Even though crime rates may be high or what it is known for, Memphis has so much more to offer. We have great culture, community and people in this area. We have the river, our music, Elvis, our famous bbq and so much more. I support local businesses around here which are amazing and friendly and what make our economy better in the city. The pride for this city is tremendous. We have a whole movement going on for it that we call Choose901 which is our area code. Everywhere you go in the city, you'll at least see one person representing the city. Wheather it is our Tigers or the Grizzles, the support is widely shown. We have so many festivals and concert and events that are for everyone from all sorts of cultures and ethnicities. This city is truly great and I see myself living here for a long time.
Bartlett, TN isn't too busy or secluded. Everything from churches to fast food, shopping centers and private schools are within a decent 10 to 20-minute drive, but it's worth it. The suburban population is generally quiet, save for the occasional firework in January or July. My neighborhood is great for my pets. There's a park within walking distance and three more within a 8-mile radius, and the dogs enjoy walks around the block. I'v been very comfortable here for the past seventeen years. I'd consider moving back to Bartlett after graduation and travelling a bit, it's a lovely place to settle down.
