Retire in Mt. Juliet, Tennessee?
Overview: The leafy town of Mt. Juliet is just outside of Nashville in north central Tennessee. Well managed and well kept, it has grown by 500% within the last decade or two.
Established neighborhoods with modest bungalows and ranch ramblers on large lawns exist side by side with new subdivisions that have Craftsman and contemporary brick styles on smaller lots. Lake Providence is a lovely 55+ community. Shopping and dining opportunities are more than adequate with five malls that have national retailers (Belk, Walmart, Walgreens, etc.), nicer chain restaurants and movie theaters. The farmers' market happens throughout the summer. The parks and recreation department has a robust menu, and two nearby lakes, 14,000-acre Percy Priest and 22,500-acre Old Hickory Lake, provide opportunities for fishing, camping and boating.
