    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!
    Nashville has always been a small country city for me with big city dreamers and neighbors. It's always been the people of the different sub cities and towns that give Nashville it's heart and soul. Whether at the CMA's, Live on the Green concerts at the Capital, playing and walking through the many gorgeous parks, attending a Nashville Predators games, walking through Opry Mills mall, or just strolling through the luxurious Grand Ole Opry Hotel, you will never be far away from good people and great times. A downside to living in Nashville now is the commute time, which has increased to 3.5 hours! The only change that I wish for Nashville, is that tourist would stop assuming that everyone from Nashville owns a cowboy hat. Just ask around to those who live outside of downtown, and you WILL see.
    I have been a permanent resident of Nashville, Tennessee for most of my adult life and I can honestly say Nashville is home. Currently, the city of Nashville growing at such a high rate that the traffic is picking up quite a bit; however, the intimate atmosphere that can be found almost anywhere in Nashville is worth the stay! Nashville is no stranger to "southern hospitality."

    Nashville is the Country Music City so there is definitely a unique scene that will attract those who love music. There is so much to love about Nashville from our southern style Hot Chicken to our Coyote Ugly bar. To sum up my thoughts, my experiences in Nashville turned this city into a home for me.
