If you're looking for the perfect place to start a family, then look no further than Nashville, Tennessee. You'll have a hard time finding a better place to raise your current or future children than this good-natured city. It's a safe environment filled with upright people and lots of things to do, both for you and your kids.
Despite the “Nash-vegas” image put forth in recent years by Nashville's tourist department, this city remains one of the last bastions of pure Southern values. Referred to by many as the Protestant Vatican of the world, Nashville has more churches per capita than any other city in the United States; it's chock-full of God-fearing, neighbor loving people with an infectiously hospitable attitude. It's just plain difficult to be unhappy with so many satisfied people surrounding you. Most big cities leave you with a sense of distant apathy after awhile, but not Nashville, Tennessee. Far from it.
In addition to being a family friendly environment, Nashville offers a plethora of activities for you and your kids to do together. In downtown Nashville alone, you can find the city zoo (which is a full day's worth of fun), the Adventure Science Center and the Cheekwood Botanical Gardens. If that's not enough, within walking distance of downtown Nashville there are multiple parks – all well taken care of and very safe – and lots of family-friendly live music venues, too. There's no shortage of activities to keep your kids entertained.
Ultimately, any future parents would be hard-pressed to find a better place to raise a family than Nashville. It's safe, it's friendly and it's fun. Plus, we all know that raising a family is a costly endeavor; Nashville is a buyer's market right now, although it might not stay that way for long. There's been lots of new construction in the past couple years which has driven home-value down, however new home construction has slowed and the market has already begun to steady – It's the perfect time to take your family to Nashville, Tennessee!
