What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Nashville

Nothing is really unique about living here it's close to a few fast food places and a grocery store or two but that's about it

I like how close my neighborhood is to downtown Nashville. It's also a short drive to the mall. Plus I live right off the interstate so I can be anywhere in about 15-20 minutes.

It's a new house thats near major parts of downtown. Easy access to the highways, and some decent restaurant within a 3 minute drive.

I live close to downtown, within walking distance, there is an art gallery, symphony hall and plenty of restaurants all within walking distance

I do like the terrain. It is flat and easy to ride bicycles on. Our near neighbors are friendly and we keep an eye out on each other's property.

The wildlife in the area (deer and turkey) it's close to downtown and convenient to shopping. My neighbor came over and helped my mother in law when we were out of town and it snowed and our heat went out.

EVERYTHING TO KNOW ABOUT RENTING AN APARTMENT IN NASHVILLE, TN

Nashville, also known as Music City, is a dynamic metropolis featuring interesting restaurants, highbrow cultural institutions and professional sports venues usually found in much larger cities. Upon arrival, you'll immediately realize this town is different: It moves faster and talks a bigger game than other similar-sized towns. At the same time, Nashville's community spirit is characteristic of a friendly small town, a blend that makes it quite remarkable.

WEATHER AND SEASONS

Situated in the southeastern United States, Nashville experiences four distinct seasons, with relatively mild winters and sunny, hot summers.

BEST PLACES TO FIND AN APARTMENT FOR RENT IN NASHVILLE

To get you started on your apartment search, here are some notable neighborhoods in Nashville:

  • Midtown: If you're looking for a night out at clubs or bars, Midtown is great for that. The bars are open late and you're more likely to find locals than tourists. It's also close to downtown, so you don't have to go far.
  • Sylvan Park: Sylvan Park has mostly been houses, but in recent years, more apartment communities have been added. This is the type of neighborhood where you tend to know your neighbors and most residents are quite involved in the community.
  • East Nashville: After years of rebuilding and revitalization, East Nashville has become one of the great hotspots of the city. It tends to be more low-key, but anyone who's looking for an artsy community will find it here.
  • Green Hills: Green Hills is one of the largest and farthest out neighborhoods in the city. It's known for its shopping, with both local and high-end retail being represented. It's one of the more affluent neighborhoods, but great for families if you can afford to live there.
  • Edgehill: This one is almost a secret. It's a smaller neighborhood, focused more on shops and restaurants than homes, so you might not think it's the best. It's right next to music row and tends to be pretty affordable, however, so you can get a great deal on a great location if you find the right place here.

INDUSTRY, JOBS AND EDUCATION

A strong job market and booming economy make Nashville a popular choice for those relocating or just entering the job market. While it's a key player in the music industry, Nashville has significance in publishing and healthcare as well. It also has great higher education, being home to several notable institutions, including Vanderbilt University and Belmont University.

NASHVILLE FESTIVALS AND EVENTS

Nashville is home to a number of annual festivals, including Nashville Shakespeare Festival, Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival and Music City Hot Chicken Festival, which celebrates Nashville's famed hot chicken. The CMA Music Festival, a four-day country music extravaganza in June, hosts nearly 200 artists each year.

NASHVILLE ATTRACTIONS

When searching for apartments for rent in Nashville, you'll be happy to know the city practically bursts with notable attractions. Many country music lovers make special trips to the city just to see a performance at the Grand Ole Opry or to visit the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. High culture buffs can choose from a range of musical and artistic venues, including Nashville Opera, Nashville Symphony and Nashville Repertory Theatre. If you're looking for music memorabilia, be sure to step into Hatch Show Print Gallery to see iconic concert posters from the past. You can purchase your favorite print to take home.

FREE ATTRACTIONS IN NASHVILLE

  • Have a picnic at the vineyard:Pack a lunch and head to Arrington Vineyards in Tennessee's wine country, where you can enjoy free entrance to the vineyards and, for a small additional fee, wine tours and tastings.

If you prefer baseball, the Sounds, a minor league affiliate of the Texas Rangers, play at First Tennessee Park.

FOR FAMILIES

Treat your kids to a day of hands-on exploration at the Adventure Science Center, check out white rhinos and spider monkeys at Nashville Zoo at Grassmere or head to the Parthenon, built in 1897 as a replica of the Parthenon in Ancient Athens. The city of Nashville has increased its focus on the public school system in recent years, with Williamson and Rutherford County School districts among the highest rated in the Nashville area.

OUTDOOR LIVING IN NASHVILLE

Although downtown Nashville sits on a plain along the slow-moving Cumberland River, most of the city is built into the hilly landscape that characterizes Middle Tennessee. In addition to hiking and biking trails winding their way through the city's wooded areas, outdoorsy Nashville residents can take advantage of nearby recreational areas. These include the public use areas along the banks of J. Percy Priest Lake, Radnor Lake State Natural Area and the "twin" Percy and Edwin Warner Parks. Resident golfers enjoy a day on the greens at the public Hermitage Golf Course, featuring two courses and considered one of America's top golf courses.

NIGHTLIFE IN THE CITY

Honky Tonk Highway is where to go for live music and nightlife in Nashville, home to renowned joints like Tootsie's, Robert's, and Layla's, where legends like Johnny Cash and Willie Nelson have taken the stage. Popular with locals, Ryman Auditorium is an intimate spot for live performances.

GETAWAYS NEAR NASHVILLE

Want to get away for the weekend? Nearby cities Knoxville, Memphis and Chattanooga are less than a three-hour drive. If your idea of heaven is the beach, make the seven-hour drive to the Florida panhandle beaches of Destin.
