    Nashville is a fun, up-and-coming city. As a transplant from the North, I am a common commodity. Everyday, Nashville is becoming more and more cosmopolitan. I work with the LEP population in Nashville, and our business has grown exponentially in the past few years. As the city grows, it adds more and more job opportunities. Although Nashville is the epicenter for country music, it is much more than that. Healthcare is Nashville's other booming industry, which saved it from the financial crisis in 2008 and kept Nashville's housing market strong. With the increase in jobs and safe housing, Nashville gives you a bang for your buck with a very favorable cost of living ratio. I couldn't finish a review on Nashville without talking about its nightlife. Nashville has become a nightlife destination. Bachelor/bachelorette parties have been spilling from Broadway into hotspots locals enjoy. Going to the newest bar is every Nashvillians favorite weekend activity. Holler and Swaller!
    Review Nashville
    Hands down Nashville is the perfect place to live! From the nightlife to the boost in jobs Nashville has always been a place of success. Nashville prides itself on its diversity and peak in community growth over the past five to ten years. We welcome the variety of charter/public schools that gives our youth a safe place of knowledge in addition to a huge variety of family-oriented places/events to visit! While all cities have their share of crime Nashville elates with great community involvement, resources, police, and leadership to help control small to big crimes. The cost of living is ny far the best! How else do you explain more than 300 families moving here per day?! Although numbers in communities are peaking and traffic is getting heavier Nashville is expanding in more ways than one to help with its current boost and growth. Looking for a place to live I dare you to try Nashville! Tell them I sent you!
    I love the amazing city of Nashville. Nashville is welcoming, to all people from different walks of life. I am an Asian-American female, but I feel completely and always at home. I immediately fell in love with the big-city, small-town feel. I made some of the best friends in my life thus far, and a couple of them have invited me to St. George's Episcopal Church, which is now a big part of my life. Now, I do not want to leave. The people are the best part: genuine, sincere, honest, warm, and friendly. I can talk to anyone at the local coffee shops, unashamed, unabashed, and unshaken. All of these experiences have made my life the most wonderful it has ever been. If there is anything I would like to change is the streets! Sometimes, a lane will just end; however, my love for Nashville is never-ending.
