Someone asked the question recently about what small towns are 45 minutes outside of Nashville whether they had great schools, great communities and were kid friendly.
When I think of areas outside of Nashville …..Franklin comes to mind. Franklin, Tennessee has a celebrated school district (Williamson) with a great community feel. You have access to so many types of homes from lots of acreage to patio homes to condo/town-homes. So many great places to eat — shopping, community recreations centers …..and amazing local music.
