We are a family moving from Clemmons,NC to TN, what's the best place to live. We have a three year old son and a new baby on the way. I am looking for and area that is very kid friendly with neighborhoods with possible playgrounds, swimming pools, and tennis courts. Also, an area where they have family neighborhood activities would be great. A excellent school or mommy's morning program would be great as well.

Lots of areas in TN will fit what you're describing. Can you be more specific as to other things you want? I assume good schools since you'll have a school-ager soon. Rural/Urban/Suburban? Near mountains? Near big cities? Do you have a budget in mind for what you want to spend on a house? Etc.

Williamson County (Brentwood, Franklin) south of Nashville have excellent schools and are very family-first type of communities. However, the real estate prices there can be a tad on the high side...but there are some more affordable homes to be found. Sumner County (northeast of Nashville...Hendersonville) is another good area and generally a little bit cheaper than Williamson. Great schools, family friendly, great shopping and recreation.

Even more affordable and with very good schools is Knoxville. It is very family friendly and has incredible parks and greenways. Would you need to find a job?
