Best Places to Live in Nashville

If you’re interested in moving to the Music City, you have some of the best neighborhoods in the great Volunteer State to choose from! Nashville is known for its culture, sights, art, schools, amenity-filled neighborhoods, and of course — the music. Each corner of Nashville is unique and brings its own appeal for any personality, no matter what you’re looking for.

Whether your perfect fit is a downtown apartment close to the best restaurants and bars on Broadway or a quiet neighborhood with spacious lawns and good schools, Nashville brings it all together in the melting pot of Middle Tennessee. In this blog, we’ll go over some of the best neighborhoods so you can get started making the Music City your new home.


This Nashville suburb carries historical and cultural significance and features picturesque, walkable streets lined with restaurants and boutiques. Germantown became the city’s first established suburb in the 1850s and has kept much of its classic Victorian charm. Homeowners in Germantown can often be found walking dogs in local parks, enjoying live music at outdoor venues, shopping at the farmer’s market, and attending the annual Germantown Oktoberfest, a celebration of German traditions, beer and music. New homeowners and renters benefit from neighborhood association infrastructure renovations, new housing developments, and the protection of historical markers.

Hillsboro Village

With a perfect mix of college student and family-friendly attractions, Hillsboro can become the perfect home for just about anyone. This Nashville neighborhood is right next to both Vanderbilt and Belmont University and attracts college students and university faculty families. This area brings a local feeling to its neighborhoods with brick-front theaters, bookstores and cafes on every corner. In Hillsboro Village instead of the high-rise apartment buildings found across most of Nashville, you’ll find a more residential feel with houses, duplexes and smaller apartment communities.

Belle Meade

The Belle Meade area connects to some of the best parks and various spacious properties. Homes in this suburb are mostly inhabited by families and retired couples, many of whom are members of the exclusive Belle Meade Country Club. Belle Meade is also home to some of the best schools in all of Nashville, both public and private. If you’re interested in a larger, more luxury home with fantastic amenities, Belle Meade can offer it all and is still positioned just six miles from busy downtown Nashville, so all of the best events and sights are just a stone’s throw away.

The Gulch

Just adjacent to Downtown Nashville, The Gulch has so much to offer packed into one small neighborhood. This area is perfect for anyone shopping apartments and condos, plus it has convenient grocery stores and trendy event venues all within walking distance. Take advantage of the newly added bike lanes to commute by bike or rental scooter to work or to meet up with friends.
