Default Best Suburb in Tennessee

What's the best suburban family neighborhood (and/or subdivision) in Tennessee?

Qualifiers:
  • Within 20-minutes of the Downtown of a Metropolis. According to the US Census Bereau, TN's Major Metropolises are Nashville, Memphis, Knoxville, and Chattanooga.
  • Within 15-minutes of major shopping. Meaning both groceries and department stores.
  • Houses, not Condos or Townhouses.
  • Within 10-minutes of a park.

Oak Hills in Nashville is good enough for the governor. Or you could try Belle Meade; both Fred Thompson and Al Gore live there (and there's a huge park nearby!).

Well, it is not a "metropolis" (Johnson city is the largest and has just over 60K population) but everything else on your list would be Pinney Flats TN, and Jonesborough TN over in the Tri-Cities area.

Oh, I'm not looking, I already live in TN, Downtown Knoxville specifically. I was just wondering about everyone's thoughts.

I really like Belle Meade and the Green Hills Mall, how would you rank it against Sequoyah Hills? Sequoyah Hills has views of the Smokey Mountains, Lake Loudon/TN River and an attractive park. It's home to billionaire Jim Clayton (Clayton Homes) and Mayor Haslam who also owns Pilot Oil. Sequoyah's 7-minutes from Knoxville's biggest mall, 7-minutes from Downtown and 5-minutes from UT Football & Basketball.

I'd rank Green Hills Mall above West Town though.

Arlington, Brentwood, Franklin, Hendersonville, Bellevue, Signal Mountain, Farragut, etc.

Take your pick!

Personally, I've never been able to get from Farragut to Downtown Knox or from Franklin to Downtown Nashville that quickly

I can make it from Fountain City/Inskip/Sterchi to Turkey Creek in 22 minutes.

H10: You came back well-over two years later to let us know that?

On the western side of TN:

Germantown and Collierville.

w/out a doubt, i would say germantown. seems to have the best of everything. great schools, great job opportunities, great choral society, playhouse, symphony, stores, ssocial life, and that kind of thing. just under 40,000 residents. good hospital, good assisted living quarters for the elderly. yep, my mind is made up, germantown. the plus is its location to collierville, a larger town of about 50,000 w/ a good deal of shopping.

I would argue for Hendersonville, TN (Nashville) or Germantown, TN (Memphis)

Lived in both. Both were great !
