Do you have friends or family in the area? Why TN?

Don't have family in the area; however, one of my friends is considering relocating to the Charlotte NC area or TN.
They're interested in a lake area that's not too rural. Seems like NC is a bit too rural for her taste so far. I'm interested in a more urban/town setting. This way we can enjoy the best of two worlds; I can park in her driveway to enjoy the lake and she can park in my driveway to enjoy city/town life. Haven't given up on the full-time job but figured that with unemployment being what it is, would start part-time somewhere until I was able to make friends/network system. Plan on volunteering too.
Just do not want to put my life on hold any longer; want to move down south and hoping to find someplace that fills most of my requirements. Friendly, safe, good medical facilities and hopefully a job!
Lake areas in TN: Hendersonville and Knoxville. Neither are walkable, don't think really any city in TN is walkable to downtown from a house.

Default looking to re-locate from NJ

Hello I am looking to relocate from NJ with my husband and 2 children.
We are currently looking at either Mount Juliet or Hendersonville. We would need to secure at least one full-time job with health benefits before we can really make the move. We are both in Healthcare. With that being said, I am looking into Vanderbilt University Medical Center as an X-Ray Technologist. I have to check into the state licensure first. Who knew it would be so difficult to figure these things out?
So, my question for all of you out there is: how are these areas I am looking into for a family of four? My husband and I are just under 40 yrs old and we have 2 children in Elementary School. I am looking for a young, kid friendly neighborhood with a good school system, that won't be too far from a job for us. Gosh, I am asking alot! lol
Any input would be greatly appreciated. This is a huge decision for us and we haven't put a sign on our house here in NJ yet, but it's in the near future.

Both cities are very family-friendly, safe, and have good schools. They are also both about the same distance from Vanderbilt.
