Default Visiting Tennessee for relocation

I will be coming to Tennessee in July for 5 days, to visit and see communities that we are considering moving to...Cookeville, Spring Hill, and the eastern part of the state. Can anyone recommend any good (and safe) places to stay? Any suggestions on things that we should not miss/do?? (My teenage daughter will be travelling with me.)

Does anyone know what LPNs make in Tennessee? While there, I will be doing some job hunting as well, and want a realistic idea of the wages there.

Can't wait to come back to Tennessee!! Thanks so much...cali-allie

Out of the towns you named, I would be more inclined to recommend Spring Hill.

Reason being, I hear good things about Cookeville, but I know Spring Hills fairly well and can tell you a couple positive things about it. One thing is that parts of the Spring Hill area are in Williamson County, TN. Being the wealthiest county in the state, Williamson County hosts some of the nicest areas, such as exciting Cool Springs, suburban areas, and historic downtown Franklin.

I would also recommend Spring Hill because it is a clean, safe area. Not in any way a rough town. It's a great place to raise a family, and housing is quite reasonable. You can find restaurants in Spring Hill, and the center of the town is a quait, charming little place.

I definitely recommend Spring Hill as a place to live. You're only ten or fifteen minutes from Coolsprings, and like thirty-five minutes from Nashville. In fact, many Nashville and Franklin professionals choose to live in Spring Hill. It is a semi-rural area... you're not uncomfortably close to your neighbors, and you will find your share of farms. However, there are also things to do nearby.

Not to bash Cookeville... I'm sure it's great, I would just be more inclined to recommend Spring Hill.

I also recommend that you check out Franklin, Thompson's Station, and Brentwood.

If you use Mapquest, Pick your city / town then enter Hotel or Restaurants. Cookeville will light up like a Christmas Tree showing you all that you have asked for. Most icons have a link to that corporations web site.
