I love this city! This town is quickly growing and already quite large in size. This hospitable town is very polite and caring. The southern charm is shown through different small shops opened by local businesses showcasing the needs of the city's people. One thing I love about Hendersonville is the geographic diversity. There are parts where it is quieter and more rural with lots of land while there are other parts drowned with noisy business. Either way, everything is relatively close to grocery stores, food, and other parts of life.

The town is very friendly and features a large population of wonderful, diverse people. Hendersonville, Tennessee is also home to some of the best schools in the state boasting some of the best scores around. With these schools comes the best sports programs in the state, hosting homes to champions of all sports ranging from tennis to ice hockey. Another beautiful part of this town is it’s plentiful shopping centers. Hendersonville alone is home to 4 different shopping centers and plenty of strip malls. Countering these malls are range of parks and greenways for the adventurous type of people. However, real estate is closing fast so it is necessary to move soon if thinking about it.
Moved to Hendersonville in 2014 with a young family from the NYC area suburbs. It was and is the best place I've ever lived. I've travelled extensively throughout the continental U.S. and found no better place to raise a family. Very diverse in terms of residents from other states, countries and backgrounds. It is a melting pot of very unique and special people along with some very kind natives from the area. It is a growing city and as such has the usual growing pains of traffic and logistics but in general it is still a city on the rise with a population that cares for it's community and neighbors.
