Great public schools and wonderful churches. Friendly people! Schools K-12 were updated for extra safety after Sandy Hook event. Law enforcement cares for the safety of the public, fair but firm. No traffic problems and only 35 minutes from Raleigh if you want major night life.

I love my town! I was born and raised in Nashville,NC. This town is country and very comfortable, reminds me a lot of where I go to college at. This county has helped mold me into a smart and determine women. Also, brought on many long lasting friendships, that I wouldn't trade for the world.
Nash County is progressive. Nash County's finest in Nashville do an awesome job keeping the crime rate down. The utility Bill's specifically in the Nashville area are reasonable; which makes living here affordable.
