Opinions on Nashville TN?
I expect to get a good job offer from a place in Nashville this next week (4-16-07 to 4-20-07) and I am wondering if it is worth it to take it.
Some background: I went there yesterday, Friday 4-13-07 for a fact to fact interview and it went VERY well. In fact they told me that they would probably call and offer the job some time this next week.
I was done with the interview by about 3pm so I decided to drive around a bit and look at the town and some of the suburbs for an hour or two before making the 3 hour or so drive back to Memphis.
Traffic was AMAZINGLY bad! How in the world does anyone get around that town?
I looked at La Vergne and Brentwood. La Vergne seems kind of industrial and run down. Brentwood was just looked very expensive.
Does anyone have suggestions for a good suburb to buy a house in and live? With good schools, low crime and easy access to shopping and other things a family likes to do? Old Hickory?
I need suggestions.
We like the town we live in now. It isn't Memphis, it is a small town on the edge of Shelby County, Arlington. And except for the crime rate Memphis is actually a pretty cool city. I just don't particularly like the place where I work. And, if I could work at a much nice place, as this one I interviewed at was, for really good people which they seem to be, for more money, which it would be, then the only thing holding me back is the area itself.
So please, tell me what you know about Nashville. I need info.
