My house goes on the market tomorrow in florida. I'm looking to go to TN. My husband is nervous about moving again. Moved from Ct to Fl.,and now looking for a real place to settle down. I was looking at Mt Juliet area, someone mentioned Johnson City area. What is the difference with these areas? I'm a nurse so can work anywhere, he is retired off Fire Dept in Ct. so that's not a problem with jobs. Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thankyou.

I guess my simplified suggestion would be to wait until you current house sells before you move. It seems like many people do that for some reason these days. The market in FL is now... more challenging. Once you've sold and see what you made, then you can start the process of moving. A nursing job should be no problem. In fact, last time I looked , there was a mention of the shortage of nurses in TN in general.

I can understand your husband's nervousness over moving...again. I would make sure that this is as much his decision as yours.

Mount Juliet is a suburb of Nashville. Johnson City is a real town (not a suburb) in the Tri Cities area of Northeast Tennessee. Mount Juliet has no downtown, very little history. But as far as suburbs go, it's a nice one. It's close to a couple of lakes and isn't too far from the Nashville airport.

What made you look at the Mount Juliet area? Are you looking for a suburban environment?

The Johnson City area (the Tri Cities) is much more mountainous and has cooler, less humid weather. It's also a bit more isolated in that the Tri Cities airport is pretty small and has ridiculously high air fares compared to Nashville.

Hi,
I just replied to your other post about jobs in Tri-Cities area but just read this one where you say you are originally from CT and then to FL. I did the same LOL! I grew up by Colchester Ct, moved to Jupiter Fl, (could not stand FL in comparison to CT!) and then after 11 LOOONNNGGG years in Fl, I moved to North East TN, I LOVE it here! My children are getting a great education and there are lots of things to do and cost of living is SOOO much cheaper than in CT all the way around and we don't have to shovel snow for 5 months either but still get 4 seasons.
If you at all like me, liked CT, didn't like Fl, you too should love the Tri-Cites area.
But JMT is right, if you do a lot of travel by plane, Nashville has MUCH cheaper flights than Tri-Cities.
