I love Lebanon. It's a small town just outside of Nashville. You aren't far from restaurants, grocery stores, or parks. We have a dog park that connects a walking trail from the community park. It's a great place to hang out with your furry friend. Across the dog park are the Bocce Ball courts. Bring your own balls and have a blast. We have a local movie theater and restaurants. Each with their own unique characteristics. The historic square has several local businesses. Cracker Barrel was even founded here!

Lebanon is a semi-big town with a small town feel. The people are kind and the faces are friendly! Many of those who have been here for awhile will always greet others by name. It is a usually quiet town but every now and then the parades bring out the fanfare! We are also growing every day! It seems like you can drive down any road in town and see a new business pop up or beautiful new housing! Lebanon is still growing in nightly entertainment but we aren't but 30-45 minutes from most of the larger surrounding towns and Nashville! What's great about Lebanon is you can have a house in the middle of the country and still be 10-15 mintues from town! Lebanon is a town with a big heart and is always making room for more home grown families!
Lebanon is a small town right outside of Music City Nashville, Tennessee. While this city may seem below average, the people are what makes it five stars! Everyone is so warm and kind to one another. The town square is always hosting well attended events with food and other activities. Other activities that show the character of Lebanon are Don Fox Park, the historic library, the Mill, and the always busy dog park!

If I could change one thing about my town, it would be to improve the shopping mall. The current mall is an outdoor strip mall that is very dated. If the mall was updated, it would bring more people to Lebanon. Currently, I drive to the next town over so I can shop at Target, OldNavy, and TJMaxx. Bringing some of those big stores over to Lebanon would help the other local businesses by bring more shoppers this way instead of them driving to Mount Juliet.
