Bartlett is a boring little city with few restaurants. It's near a declining mall with rising crime. The only nice things about it are the city services and the parks. They need a major revamp and a new mayor. They've been too complacent and really need to wake up. There's crime happening here that would have shocked me a few years ago.

Plus, this place is just not convenient to anything! It feels like a chore to drive anywhere interesting in Memphis from Bartlett, especially from the outskirts where the newer developments are. Furthermore, they don't offer curbside recycling pick-up, though the drop-off location is nice. The library has some of the most dour librarians I've encountered anywhere, though some of the folks are nice. I can always tell when I cross back over to Bartlett because people are a little too in your business.

The area is very well kept and monitored. The neighborhood that I am in consists of families and older couples so there isn't a lot of noise or disturbances. Nearby churches in the community do a fair amount of events that are family friendly. The local park also hosts a weekly farmers market. Bartlett is also close to many of the subdivisions in the Memphis area, making it easy to virtually go anywhere of interest in 15 minutes or less. There are also a lot of quality restaurants and stores that are in walking distance. Couldn't ask for a better, affordable place to live.
Due to being in a military family, I have lived all over the United States. Bartlett has been my favorite of all the places I have lived, including Florida and Virginia. I feel more safer in Bartlett than I have any where else. Also, the people here treat you as family and always make you feel welcomed. Whenever a tragedy happens, we all come together and support each other through the tough times. Since Bartlett is a small town, just about everyone knows each other or are connected in some way. It's nice living in a small town and always feeling at home no matter where you're at in the suburb.
