I have lived in several states and several places within those states, and I have traveled extensively across the U. S. and the world. Of all of the places I have lived, there is no question that Maury County is the best. Columbia and Spring Hill have come a long way in recent years. Columbia, in particular, has done some wonderful things to its downtown. I live on a farm in the county and there is no place on earth that I would rather spend my life. It is one of the most beautiful places anywhere. Southern Living Magazine chose Columbia as one the the 10 best small towns to live in. They chose it for good reason.

I live in a rural community on the farmland my mother grew up on. I would choose to live here again if I could do it all over, not only because my mother's family all live within 5 minutes of us, but also because of the caring community we're apart of. We are not the wealthiest area in Tennessee, but we are rapidly growing due to our somewhat close proximity to Nashville. The area is beautiful, dotted with quaint farms rolling around the bendy roads and over the many hills, and smelling of flowers and cut grass in the springtime, although our winters can be very icy. I would rank it 30 out of 100 most beautiful places to live in the country, because while not exotic, it has a unique Southern charm. It also hold a special heritage and history to myself personally. I hope the population growth will not route out the Southern grace, charm, and tradition this area has clung to so long in the future years.
Some things that I like about Maury County is that it is a small town and pretty much everyone knows everyone. There is not many opportunities here as far as to advance yourself. The housing market is way over priced for a town that doesn't have much to offer anymore. Maury County has a lot of potential to grow but I am not sure if it will ever advance and grow.
