There are many reasons to call Middle Tennessee home. Here you'll find a lower cost of living, affordable housing and reasonable commute times. There's the natural beauty of our rolling countryside. And you'll enjoy four distinct seasons, one of which is a mild winter.
You can live in city convenience, the cordiality of a suburban neighborhood, or the peaceful countryside of outlying areas, all just minutes from work. You'll be impressed by the respect shown to the medical community and by the burgeoning population of Middle Tennessee's academic community, home to more than 20 colleges and universities.
Geographically, Middle Tennessee is less than a day's drive from 70% of the U.S. population and accessible to the world from Nashville International Airport.
