Hi - I'm looking to build a home in TN to retire in & I've narrowed the cities down to Ashland City & Kingston Springs. Can anyone please tell me the biggest differences in the two & which one would be better for someone in their 50's & 60's + to live in? (activities, time to Nashville, crime etc) Thanks, much appreciated!

It depends on what you are seeking most. They are both a little remote, but still within an easy drive to Nashville. There is a Super Wal-Mart in Ashland City and a little town, but there's not much there in general. Kingston Springs won't have much in the "town", per se, but you could hop on the Interstate quickly and get quickly to the Bellevue area which would have just about everything you'd need. Kingston Springs seems a little more convenient from that standpoint.

You'll have twice as many choices of housing in Ashland City, but many of the Ashland City homes will be on regular or slightly larger than normal lots. While there are options with a bit of land, if land is what you're after...I'd probably pick Kingston Springs. You'll have some there that do not have much land, but the ones that do will likely be very beautiful pieces of land. Many wooded properties, some rolling hills and peaceful feeling surroundings abound. You'll be in some very beautiful country, but you can still get to civilization within minutes.

Default Thank you!

Thank you for the great information, it really helps. I've narrowed my search area to Kingston Springs & Pegram. I thought Pegram sounded a lot like Kingston Springs. Any thoughts?
