We will be relocating to Mount Juliet in March. My son, 22, will not be moving with us when we relocate in March. I am happy and sad at the same time. He is 22 and I hope that living on his own, he will be able to grow as a person and into an adult. There is something to be said about living within the comforts of your parent's home and not growing up.

I am asking for input on the Mount Juliet area and Nashville in general as far as things to do for a young adult. My son has been misinformed and has been told over and over that there is absolutely nothing but green pasture to stare at. And thanks to American Idol, Bridge Jumping is now the added favorite thing to do in the area.... UGH!!!

Mount Juliet isn't the big city, but Nashville isn't far away. There is plenty to do here for all age groups. This is a good sized metro area. Is there anything in particular he is interested in? Perhaps one of the younger people can be more specific.

The green pasture is fast disappearing, which is good and bad.
It all depends on what you're "in" to. MJ has two great lakes (not to be confused with THE Great Lakes) nearby. There are a couple of great music stores (be sure to check out Shiloh). Greenways are on the way, etc. Also, as my wife will tell you, there's almost all the shopping you could ever want right here in MJ. And, for anything else, as rossc stated, Nashville isn't far away.

He is interested in clubs and places with live music. He likes dance music and old stuff like Freestyle music.

Downtown Nashville has so much of that he'll get tired of it. It's called music city not just for country music. 2nd and Broadway is a hot spot for the younger generation, but there are clubs featuring all kinds of music all over the city.

I live in Mt. Juliet. It's a great place for families. It's not where I'd go if I was young, single and new to the area, but like the other posters said, Nashville's right next door. You're right, though, at 22 he should be out on his own, whether it's there or here.

As for the bridge jumping from American Idol, it was in Vonore, which is a tiny TINY town on the other side of the state near Knoxville. They did not represent all Tennesseans.

The kid should Google more. These days, these questions shouldn't really even need to be asked.

If your son is heavily into the electronica scene, he'll be disappointed. Nashville is not a good city for electronic music (even worse for older styles like freestyle). Good DJs do pass through the city, but it's usually on weekdays and the crowds can be pretty sparse. But if that's enough to satisfy his electronic itch, then I'd say he'd be OK.
