I enjoy living in Davidson County. However, the increase in our population has made the traffic TERRIBLE! Trips that use to take 15 mins can take up to 45 minutes some times. The school systems is also not in a good space right now, and by me being a teacher and a parent, education is very important to me.

I live in a nice,quiet portion of the county.The most busy/interesting thing near us would have to be the airport but other than that I'd say its pretty much just "normal" (for lack of phrase). While I like the new faces around here, I've become more worried about crime in the area; mostly due to my father being a police officer. If I could probably change one thing about the county it'd be to give the police in my area more funding due to them being understaffed and largely "without" in terms of technologies and other materials other counties possess but have not been distributed state-wise
It is a very safe community to live in with an excellent school system in the area. I have lived here for over three years and there was not a moment that I did not enjoy living here. The community is connected and overall friendly, especially small businesses in the area. Everywhere you go you can find such an amazing hidden gem that you will always want to visit after you find it. It is a great place to have a family and to make amazing as well as talented friends. If you love music as much as I do then anywhere in Nashville is great but Davidson specifically has amazing art schools that you or your child can attend to. I highly recommend being a part of the Davidson county community as quickly as possible.
