As a whole, Goodlettsville is a nice small city to live in. There is an abundance of fast food and regular restaurants, a mall, a movie theatre, convenient/discount stores, and much more! The only downside is that everything is also connected to TWO main roads; traffic is always backed up.

Great Place to raise a family. Kind neighbors and quiet neighborhoods. Affordable houses and apartments. I would suggest living on the Sumner County side. They provide great schools: Madison Creek, Beech Elementary, TW Hunter and Beech High School!
Goodlettsville is amazing! It’s a nice hometown feel but only 30mins from anywhere! I’ve literally lived here my entire life and don’t regret a minute of it. The schools are awesome and the diversity is good for the location. The police are always on top of their stuff and encourage families to get involved in the community. Goodlettsville always hosts a annual parades for the usual holidays.
