We moved from Florida to Tennessee in 2001. All signs point to the fact that we will probably retire here -- by choice. We L O V E Nashville! Our favorite places to live are just <em>south</em> of Music City -- we've had houses in Brentwood, Franklin, and Spring Hill. (And we have properties in Leipers Fork, Cookeville, and Lewisburg.) This is where I share my best tips for moving your family to Brentwood, Tennessee. When I'm not out & about enjoying the Nashville area, you will find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites).
