I will be looking in the future to relocate to the surrounding areas of nashville. Would anyone give me the pros and cons of living in the outlying areas such as Hendersonville, Gallatin, Mt. Juliet, and some of the other smaller locations.

Do any of them still maintain that small town charm? or still have historical meaning, with use of their buildings in the downtown. I am not sure if I am imagining things but I am more or less looking for an area similar to outside cafes, lots of coffee venues.....Very walkable, and maybe a really nice library.

Can or will anyone take a stab at giving me pros and cons of the outlying areas? Would be greatly appreciated!

Franklin would probably be a good choice for you; or at least a good place to start.

Most of the towns within the Nashville orbit are nice places to live; however, some of them are not towns in the classic sense of having a real downtown area. Most of the surrounding counties have one larger town, and then some smaller towns within the same county.

Another place you might want to at least look at is the Midtown/Hillsboro Village/West End area of Nashville.

Gallatin has a historic looking downtown that they have cleaned up to look pretty good, however the areas surrounding it are in need of major updating. Hendersonville doesn't have any buildings for a historic downtown and that is definitely one thing lacking in Hendersonville.

will you be driving into Nashville daily? If not, I like downtown Lebanon and even downtown Murfreesboro. I do agree with Alleycat in that you can find most of that in Hillsboro Village and even Green Hills right in the heart of Nashville. Clarksville is another city that has a really fun downtown/city hall area.
