Considering a move from MN for a new job and warmer climate. Right now I have all of what I mentioned in my title: I can be downtown within 30 min, I am 10 minutes from the marina where I store my boat, and my kids go to one of the top schools in the state.

My job is sales related so I can usually schedule my day around rush hour and work from home if necessary, so 7am commute times, for example, aren’t a concern. I’m trying to determine where I can have all 3 options listed above that are important to me and my family. It looks like Mt Juliet might make sense? Hard to tell looking on maps though if it’s a safe or nice place.

Proximity to a few good restaurants and bars would be nice too. Right now I’m in an area where there’s a lot of new development so things are improving on that front but usually I’m driving 15-20 min to get to a good restaurant (read: not a chain).

Is Mt Juliet area a good target based on this info? Thanks!

Good question. I’d say 500k max

We’ll be going down and visiting in about a month. Any areas around there which are a bit seedy? As Mt Juliet is due east, is there anything anyone is missing out on by being on the East side? The airport is nearby which I prefer since I’ll travel a bit for work. What about in terms of cool places to go and things to do? Any hiking, mountain biking, good parks nearby those areas? Festivals, music venues, etc?

You can't go wrong with Hendersonville or Mt. Juliet. Both have great park systems in area. You're about a 20 min. drive to Grand Ole Opry from both. Long Hunter State Park is a pretty nice state park that has hiking, mountain biking, and a few small beach areas. A small hot air balloon festival is at the park in MJ and Halloween in the Patk draws 1,000's of people. Hendersonville is a very lake-centric community. It has a very nice shopping center called Indian Lakes lots and lots of lake properties, some in the multi-million dollar category. Mt Juliet has Providence shopping center with very nice lake homes as well and also some multi-million dollar properties. In my opinion, Mt. Juliet and Hendersonville are very nice wealthy upper-middle class communities.

I wouldn't call MJ or Hendersonville "upper" middle class. They're really nice but they're a level under Brentwood and a lot of Franklin. And I say that as a native of MJ.

I would classify Brentwood upper class and Franklin mostly upper class/upper middle class. Mt. Juliet and Hendersonville would be on the next tier what ever that designation would be. Maybe "upper middle class" isn't correct category. I guess I was just trying to say they're really nice areas as you stated as well.

If having a reasonable commute to the airport is a major concern, I would favor MtJ over Hendersonville. I also think both are pushing the limits of a 30 minute downtown commute. 30 min would be the minimum commute for most parts of MtJ and certainly Hendersonville at least based on my experience. That said, there's really no other area I can think of with lake access that is going to be less than 30 mins commute so that is something you might have to just get used to I'm afraid.

Thanks for the responses everyone. Yeah we are a little spoiled living in MN with lake access. Probably have to do some heavy evaluation on what’s most important to be happy day in/day out.
