Davidson County Reviews

2 reviews
My experience in Davidson county is an interesting one. My family and I moved to Davidson County in 2019, and we love it a lot. Firstly, what i like about Davidson County is the diversity that can be found when you get to know the community.
The second and third reasons that i like about my experience is the friendliness of the people and fun things to do in the county.
What I would like to change is the traffic flow in my neighborhood or maybe include some more roads that will redirect the flow of traffic to not xause more traffic on the road.

It's good for a county, but our funding for most things is below average. There is stuff to do all over, but the surrounding counties are definitely better.
