Cost of living is very high, and not the most diverse suburb of Nashville. Schools are leading in education but are crowded and over capacity due to the influx of people moving here. There are a ton of neighborhoods to choose from and they are pretty much all located close to shopping centers, etc. But the entertainment options in the area are limited. Safety and crime is relatively low here, but minor break ins occur (lock your cars and take your belongings). About 15 miles from Downtown Nashville. I haven't had the best experience here as the people can be quite snobby (teens especially) but thankfully we have met some very nice and thoughtful families as well!

Quality of life at it’s best! Great location, great schools, great people and a great place to raise a family. When it comes to benchmark, Brentwood sits amongst the top suburbs in the US.
Brentwood has a decent size population, but it still feels like a small community! There is a good amount of young families and people around mine and my husband's age to help it feel like home.
