I have lived here my whole life and I wouldn't change it for the world. Fairview is a very small town; however, it is growing quite rapidly. You will not find better hospitality than in Fairview. Everyone is either related to one another, or they went to school together. My favorite part about Fairview is Friday night football games. Everyone in town coming to cheer on their favorite players. Go yellow jackets!

I’ve lived here for almost 40 years, two thirds of my life. I’ve raised my children here and watched it grow. A city is what you make of it and having moved from a very large city, I had to adjust my expectations, and my life to this slower paced more spread out way of life. Glad I did! If you need restaurants - move to Chicago, diversity - move to New York, no commute - live in Downtown, USA., anonymity - move to LA, night life - New Orleans. If you want a caring, loving and giving sense of community, move to Fairview. It’s quiet, has excellent schools, a beautiful nature park, wonderful close knit neighborhoods, and real people to call true friends. It’s the shortest of commutes to Nashville, Franklin, and Dickson where you can find all kinds of nightlife, restaurants, business opportunities, activities, cultural events, shopping, sports, and history.
Fairview is a small town with very little to do besides farming, hanging out at Walmart or Publix, or going to the Taco Bell drive-thru. The library is very small, but has some very interesting books, and the city itself looks fairly nice, although some of the buildings are little old. Most of the people in Fairview are very friendly and there are some tight-knit communities in the churches and other groups that you find in. Fairview is definitely a sleeper town and it's more for people to come home and relax after a long day at work in Nashville than it is a place to have fun.
