If city life is not your cup of tea, this suburb of Memphis is perfect for you! I've lived in Bartlett for almost 10 years and I have no complaints. The school system is phenomenal, the safety is above and beyond, and it's close to many shopping centers.

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.
Bartlett is an overall safe and enjoyable place to live. There are plenty of places to shop, outdoor activities, and family friendly places. The community is strong and there are many outreach and church programs to help those who may be disadvantaged.
