This is a discussion on Opinions on Nashville TN? within the Off Topic & Humor Discussion forums, part of the The Back Porch category; Well....so far I am just about as undecided as I was when I asked the question in the first place.
This has been the all ...

The Donelson/Hermitage area is nice, in fact the house right next door to me is for sale (neighborhood fireteam!)
Closer you are to downtown Nashville, the worse it gets.
Murfressboro is growing too quickly for their infrastructure. Their crime/traffic rates are growing along with their population.
Check out Springhill (South) or Mt Juliet (east) for some better areas that doesn't have too bad traffic, except for the AM drive into town
As far as the gangs go, we have about the same as most towns our size. MS13, Kurdish boys, Latin pride, brown pride, etc. The mostly take on each other.
There's also Joelton in the northeast part of Davidson/Cheatam(sp) county.

I use to live in the Donelson area. Very nice area. More middle class I guess. Brentwood is expensive. Lavergne is kinda out of the way and is industrial as you said. Old Hickory is nice and I'd say middle class, but to me is kinda out of the way and not real convenient.

Well it is the mother of all YMMV questions. Nobody really knows what you want in a neighborhood except you and everyone's opinions are based on personal preferences that don't always translate well.

To me Nashville isn't a city, it's a big town. Everyone seems connected in some way, at least in my circles.
But the reasons I like it here don't mean squat to the next guy, and the fact that I wouldn't like living outside Davidson county shouldn't mean anything either. I appreciate that you wanted our opinions on Nashville, but I didn't expect anything that any of us said to influence you too much. It's all your decision at the end of the day.
Good luck with it all the way, even if you stay put.

You are 100% right .02.
In the end it is up to me and my family. And, so far I am still undecided and loosing sleep over this decision.
I'll keep you guys posted. Maybe I won't even get the job offer. Who knows?
