Review Brentwood
I think Brentwood is a wonderful town to live in. It is perfect for families and has activities like bowling, movies, skating, etc. The schools, both public and private, are fantastic in Brentwood and there are many options to choose from. It is a short ride to Nashville which is a city known for its nightlife. It is in close proximity to many other attractions as well such as Nashville Shores. I have lived in Brentwood my whole life and plan to settle down here too. The people are friendly everywhere and friends are not a far distance.I would recommend this city to anybody and cannot think of anything I would change.
Brentwood, TN is a small town about 20 minutes south of Nashville. Brentwood is a beautiful suburb made up of mainly middle and upper-class families. A majority of families are caucasian with little diversity in the city. The public school system, Williamson County, includes nationally ranked schools that provide children with the best public education Tennessee has to offer. Brentwood is also a very safe area with little to no crime. Houses in Brentwood average at about $400,000, but in my opinion, the high cost of living is worth the exceptional school system and community. Most people residing in Brentwood do not work in Brentwood, which is not at their disadvantage. If you are not looking to commute, jobs are easy to find throughout the Brentwood area. The commute time from Brentwood to downtown Nashville is about 15-20 minutes by interstate. My experience living in Brentwood has been exceptional, and I would recommend living in Brentwood to any family who can afford it.
