Relocating to Nashville, TN – Your Local Guide

Nashvillians cherish the relaxed, friendly feel of a smaller city coupled with the energetic vibe of a big city. People smile, make eye contact and still say, “Y’all come back.” It’s a Southern city, to be sure. But it's also proud of its cultural diversity and reputation for innovation, especially in healthcare and technology. Nashville treasures their parks, trails, and greenways, from the urban Riverfront Park to the lush woods of Percy and Edwin Warner Parks and their 2,700 acres of walking and biking trails, horse trails, a nature center, athletic fields, picnic places, golf courses and scenic views. 

Nashville, TN, known as "The Music City", ranked the 13th best place to live in the entire country

Nashville is home to 21 four-year undergraduate and post-graduate colleges and universities, among them Tennessee State University, Vanderbilt University, Belmont University and Lipscomb University. Middle Tennessee State University is a few miles away in Murfreesboro.


Nashville's not just a college town, however. It's also filled with families who choose to take up residence in the surrounding communities such as Mt. Juliet, Brentwood and Hendersonville. Nashville is relatively affordable compared to other major U.S. metro areas, though the housing market has become increasingly competitive. The city has seen an increase in its population, as well as a rise in home values. Since Tennessee is one of the few states that do not tax wages, residents can keep more of their income. 


Music is a massive draw in Nashville. Located downtown, the Country Music Hall of Fame attracts more than 1 million visitors each year. Also nearby, many prolific musicians regularly take the stage at the Ryman Auditorium and the Ascend Amphitheater. Regarding nightlife, lower Broadway is honky-tonk central, with the Nashville sound pouring out of watering holes like Tootsies Orchid Lounge and Robert's Western World every day and night. Food is also a huge deal. While known for traditional meat-and-three joints and hot chicken, Nashville has also become a creative incubator for many award-winning culinary white coats. Residents also have a fair share of blue in their wardrobe as swarms of Tennessee Titans (NFL), and Nashville Predators (NHL) fans periodically take over the town on game days. The minor league baseball team Nashville Sounds also call the area home. There are many activities for families too. Centennial Park, the Adventure Science Center and the Nashville Zoo at Grassmere are often packed with strollers on weekends.
