Mount Juliet Reviews

Mount Juliet is GREAT for young families. The people here genuinely care about the well being of others. It is a booming city with a "small town" feel. The city continues its growth with its continued development of Providence Marketplace as well as the addition of new schools to accommodate for the population growth. Traffic isn't great--especially around N. Mt. Juliet Road/Providence. Emergency services are prompt and respectful. The town is full of mom-and-pop shops, so shopping local won't be a problem. There are many job opportunities for high school students, and not so many opportunities for adults. As an adult, it's likely you'll have to travel outside of Mount Juliet to find work.

Mount Juliet is a growing town with plenty of nice people. The town has lots of things to do and the community is great. For a high school student, there is also lots of community service opportunities and job opportunities alike. The schools here are great as well. Mount Juliet High School is a top ranked school with the academic success to back it up. Overall, MJ as we call it, is a great place to be!
Mt. Juliet is a great town to grow up in, but not live in as an adult. It boasts many amenities of a larger city without the negative effects that come with an extremely urban area. We have a variety of chains, from retail locations such as Target to dining like Chick Fil A and Starbucks. We have movie theaters, malls, and anything in between. However, most work comes from Nashville, and a commute in the mornings is about an hour drive. Thus, my reasoning for "not as an adult" comes in. Overall, it's a great little town that lacks the major job opportunities that Nashville has.
