Hello,
Soon I will be moving to Nashville from Louisville for a new job in the next coming months. The job is right outside of Lebanon right off of 840 on Central Pike.

I am a single 25 year old black male just out of grad school and was wondering which of these areas would be best to live in for a young professional.

I don't need to be around any crazy night life since I can go into the city for that, but I don't mind there being some bars/pubs with professionals around my age in decent proximity to where I'll be living.

The price range for apts/rent I will be able to afford will be 700-1000 a month.

Thanks,

Soon to be Tennessee resident.

Mboro or Mt. Juliet. There's not a lot in Lebanon.

I was gonna say Murfreesboro, too. Just way more of a town and even though you don't want a crazy night life, with the college there, there's just more of everything for a younger professional. Best of luck! Hot here today . . . I guess it's almost the same weather. Although we are on Central time, are you?

No eastern time but I'm use to central time because I went to school in Murray Ky, which is in central time.

Thanks for the answers. I've been leaning towards Murf, because of the size.

Also look at Smyrna. There is an apartment complex, right near Jefferson Pike which crosses over 840 (about 5 miles?!?!).

Just an update, I officially got the job (Amazon) and will be moving next month. After some time I've decided to live closer to the city instead of Murf. The Donelson/Hemitage area is where I decided so I could be closer to the city and still be about the same distance from work. Been looking at the Trails and lincoya bay apartments. Making a good choice?

Thanks

I don't know anything about that area, a newbie as well, but just wanted to say Congratulations! I (mostly) love Amazon and spend WAY too much money there. When does that distribution center open? I will have to start paying sales tax when it does so I should order any big ticket items soon . . . Won't that be a really long commute??????

Best to you!

Thanks!

It's targeted to be open Sept. 15th. Google maps says its about 20mins which isn't bad since it will be a reverse commute.

Seems like I've been by those complexes, but can't remember now much about them. Hopefully someone will chime in with specific info for you. Some of those complexes you sort of need to have feet on the ground before making a decision.
