Mt. Juliet is a safe, suburban, spread out city. We have 3 high schools in our local area as growth is rapid here. We have shopping areas, boutiques, and so many places to eat. You will hear about traffic getting to Downtown Nashville and back, but it truly isn't that bad, ESPECIALLY if you're moving here from a larger city. I have lived in this area my whole life and it has grown exponentially. We have many neighborhoods and upcoming apartment complexes. There are also multiple senior living centers and communities. Churches are in abundance here as well. Politics here seem to stray towards Republican views. The school system has caught some flack in the last few years for having so many issues with testing and lack of space for teachers and students alike. There isn't a nightlife scene, but we are so close to lakes and outdoor park areas that are great for weekends. I am looking to move elsewhere soon but I definitely recommend Mt. Juliet (we call it MJ) for family-oriented people.

Mount Juliet has a very strong sense of community, one example of this is our police force. The officers are very involved in community events and the motto that they promote is, "Mount Juliet, Community Strong". Our city is also known as "The land Between the Lakes" and has several access points to both Hickory Lake and Percy Priest Lake. There is a sense of togetherness here that I haven't felt in the other cities I have lived in. While Mount Juliet isn't an everyone knows everyone type of town, it is clear that everyone has a mutual respect for one another and is willing to sacrifice their time and resources into improving the livelihood of others in the community. We take pride in keeping our city clean and beautiful, both physically and fundamentally. This area is extremely safe and has low crime rates, amazing schools, and several independent businesses that add to the charm of our city.
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.
