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.
Review Bartlett
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.
In Bartlett, TN, I was really impressed when we first moved down here. The city is very family-orientated. The schools are pretty good, I enjoyed them when I was growing up. Bartlett is close enough to the shopping centers, but far enough away you are not bum-bared with the hassle of traffic constantly. They have a lot of family activities through the year from festivals to parades where you can just have a good time. The park selections are also great.
