I have a Gallatin address, but I don't feel like I live in Gallatin. I live south of Gallatin between Gallatin and Hendersonville close to Volunteer State Community College. This area close to the college is very nice. There are many new stores: Kroger Marketplace, the Publix shopping center, a new movie theater and I'm less than 10 minutes away from the Streets of Indian Lake complex.

For me, the major con to living in this area is the distance to Nashville. I used to live close to downtown of a major city and I loved the convenience and miss it. If I meet friends in Nashville, we usually meet in Hillsboro Village or Green Hills and it's a headache driving 40 minutes each way in Nashville traffic.

I think if you're single, this isn't the best place to live. There just aren't enough other singles in the area to connect with. Sumner county is very conservative, so if you're a Democrat you won't find many like-minded people. But, this is true of all the more affluent Nashville suburbs. I've been looking for a new physician recently and I've found that most of the outstanding physicians have their offices in downtown Nashville - not the suburbs of Hendersonville and Gallatin. So, it's a con to have to travel a bit to find a really good doctor.

Overall, this is a nice area and I like living here. The major drawback is the traffic and travel time to parts of Nashville.
