Questions about possible relocation to Nashville

Jump to last reply

So my husband was just extended a job offer in Nashville and I'm not sure what to make of it. We currently live in Charlotte, NC but are originally from southern Illinois (St. Louis area). We've been in Charlotte for about 4 years and the hardest part is being away from family. The single most attractive part of moving to Nashville, for me, is the opportunity to be a lot closer to my family in IL. I've been to Nashville once, and we drive through it every time we make the long trek from NC to IL, but I don't really know much about it.

For those of you who live or lived in Nashville, I would love your thoughts on the city. Are people friendly to outsiders? I really like Charlotte but will readily admit that it wasn't the easiest place to make close friends. I finally have a few close friends and it's going to be sad to say goodbye should we relocate. We have one year old twin daughters so living in a family-friendly area in a good school district is key. We also like being outdoors and frequent many of Charlotte's greenways with the girls and the dog. Does Nashville have a nice park system with trails?

I guess right now I'm just a bit overwhelmed by the prospect of moving again and since I don't really know anything about Nashville accept its affiliation with country music (of which I'm not a fan) I'm looking for mainly some opinions on the region.

Thanks!
Tracy
