We were dead-set on moving to Kingsport by the end of October but my husband's transfer (Walgreens) fell through at the last minute, so we are now back to square 1 - UGH! We started looking (online) early in the summer and really loved Hendersonville but now I know that I must always have a Plan B in place. I was hoping you guys could help us out - time is crucial.

Here's our laundry list of needs/wants:
GREAT school district
VERY LOW crime rate - specifically among teens (gangs, drugs, that type of
thing)
Nice, safe neighborhoods, with friendly people
Affordable living
Not too big-city feeling (want the down-home, laid back, non-congested, but also not desolate feel), where people actually spend time enjoying their families
Mountains would be great, even if they were only in the background
A large body of water is a MUST! Like where you could water ski
Need a variety of things for teenagers to do - malls, skate park, outdoorsy stuff, kickboxing lessons, music lessons, etc. (Things to keep them busy & happy)
We'd like to have a place within a reasonable drive where we can go play Texas Hold 'Em from time to time.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Also, any realtors using this site (who deal with rental property) are welcome to email me: krista3544@yahoo.com

Thanks in advance!

Default Hendersonville

Hi krista G/
I'm sure you must have read some of my many responses re:Hendersonville.

It has great schools, I know this because I have three children in each school.
Great sports programs for kids. Drakes creek has a great recreation facility. And I know that my teenage boy has plenty to do without getting in trouble.

we are surrounded by Old Hickory Lake, so there is your water. We even tend to swim in it from time to time, and my eight year old loves to go tubing with her friends.

need more info, let me know.

I live in White House, which is great, but H'ville would have more to do for your kids/family. You could also consider Gallatin, but I personally think H'ville is a nicer area. It's really growing too.

Goodlettsville is a nice area too - it's in three counties - Sumner (same as H'ville/Gallatin), Robertson and Davidson. You'd be a little closer to Nashville.

All three towns have nice parks, and both H'ville and Gallatin are on Old Hickory lake. All three would have rental properties galore, and tons for kids to do.

I'll be relocating to Brentwood. In my opinion, Brentwood has "the best of everything."

Yes, Brentwood is in the northern part of neighboring Williamson County (which is one of the most affluent counties in the state . . . or maybe the most affluent county in the state; it's according to how you look at the statistics).
