The atmosphere is very pleasant. The quiet neighbors, the beautiful scenery, and the space itself are amazing! Wouldn't live anywhere else.

Kingston Springs is not your average small town, it's more like a big family. It's a place where you can raise a family and have many kind neighbors. It's close to all the surrounding major cities, like Nashville, for instance. I would definitely choose to live here again given the chance. I think Kingston Springs is growing rapidly, houses are being built left and right.
The area is a decent place overall. It has its ups and downs like every place. The people in general are friendly and helpful, and there are plenty of places to visit, such as restaurants and parks. The area is slowly, but surely, growing both in residents and businesses. I cannot complain too much, as this place has been fairly good to me in the many years that I have lived here.
