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!

I visited Nashville to attend the international convention for Phi Theta Kappa and was exposed to a lively, beautiful city. Our convention was held at the Gaylord Opryland Convention Center. Every morning as a walked in a passed the overhang, I was reintroduced to the sound of flowing water, the small of thousands of flowers, and the sight of smiling faces both familiar and new. After the sessions, we explored the town and the main strip was lite up like New York City; bars, restaurants, karaoke lounges, and more bars! Country music filled the air and joy filled my body. What an incredible first experience in one of America's greatest cities!
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!
