With more than 100 people a day moving to Nashville, it’s clear we’re doing something right! Get this: US News and World Reports, Zillow, Forbes, Condé Nast, and the New York Times have all hailed Nashville as one of the best, most fashionable, and friendliest places to live in America. Not only is our city a highly desirable tourist destination, but the job market is excellent, the cost of living is super-reasonable, the quality of life is high, and the music scene is second-to-none.
We’re famous for our Southern hospitality (and charm) and our work hard/play hard approach to life. Our burgeoning restaurant scene is on fire, our cultural institutions rock, our schools are innovative, and our climate is simply lovely. Not only that, but Tennessee is one of the few states that doesn’t tax your income, so you’re free to spend your hard-earned dollars on what matters most to you!
Now that y’all are ready to take the plunge and come on down, here are a few things you’ll need to know:
Nashville has Great Schools
Music City’s Neighborhoods are Vibrant
From exclusive Belle Meade to eclectic East Nashville, Nashville has something for everyone. Nashville’s neighborhoods are thrumming with vibrancy and life. Discuss your options with your real estate agent, do your research online, or join neighborhood social media pages to learn more.
Our Music is Pretty Great, Too
Our music scene is everywhere. Nashville is one great big venue. Take a stroll down Broadway for some good ol’ honky tonk or wander along Woodland and soak in the troubadours crooning John Prine covers. If you’re looking for more established venues, you can’t go wrong with the Mother Church of Country Music, the Ryman Auditorium.
If you’re moving from the East Coast, LA, or cities where traffic is notoriously insane, you’ll find that navigating Nashville traffic is a breeze. If you talk to locals, though, you may hear a slightly different story! Be sure to ask your relocation expert for accurate estimates to get a sense of which neighborhoods are right for you.
There’s lots to consider when moving to a new city. Fortunately, Nashville has you covered. Nashville’s Chamber of Commerce provides resources for new residents to help them settle in. Learn more about taxes, utilities, cost of living, vehicle registration, voter registration, and getting your library card before even setting foot in your new city.
