Gallatin is rated the nicest town in America by Reader's Digest- and for a good reason! When I moved here about four years ago, I couldn't help but to fall in love with the kindness and manners that everyone seemed to possess! There are plenty of restaurants and shopping places around, and the town just keeps on growing! Gallatin's town square is an amazing historic area filled with local businesses! This is an amazing town overall.

I love that Gallatin has many country clubs, dining options, work out facilities, and parks. It is a fantastic place to raise a family. It is only a short drive to Nashville, Tennessee. However, traffic is becoming terrible on the interstates going into Nashville. Gallatin's housing market is on the rise, and investors are loving this area. The proximity of the lake is fantastic. Gallatin has so many lake neighborhoods. Being on the lake is a must during the Summer here.
I have grew up here. It's a well diverse place with enough space to be spread out, but still feel like a community. There's places to go and hang out. It is constantly growing and getting new things. Our community is close knit. Our games are packed. School events are well sponsored. We can count on our community to really help out and come together when need be.
