Don't get me wrong, Nashville isn't terrible, it's just not my cup of tea. Some aspects of the town are really nice (housing, commute time, friendliness, etc.). I just wish it had more to offer. It's already a small town, but perhaps we need to implement bigger [company] names to expand. Also, with us being a small town located in the Bible Belt, I feel as if diversity is extremely low and ignorant is at an extreme high. So, I just wish we had more opportunities and were more knowledgeable about things outside of Nash County.

I like that Nashville is very community orientated. Everyone in the community works together to help each other strive as well as the town as a whole. One big thing that Nashville is focused on is small businesses and helping aid in their growth. Different events are held throughout the year in order to bring attention to shopping small businesses and therefore giving back to the community.
Nice quiet community. Good conservative and good progressive ideas. Needs more things to do for teens and 20 year old's but in general good place to live. Local law enforcement has good plans on beating crime, has a national plan on opiods. Excellent parks for athletics. Streets are clean. Enjoyable place to grow up.
