Nashville's Best Suburbs in 2019Wondering which Nashville suburbs are the best to call home in 2019? Here’s a quick rundown on's most recent rankings..

10) Green Hill 

Situated between Hermitage and Mount Juliet, some say Green Hill offers the ultimate suburban living experience. Many homes here also sit along the Cumberland River, providing one of the more scenic places to live in all of Middle Tennessee. 

9) Forest Hills 

With a population of just over 5,000, Forest Hills is one of the smaller communities on the list. There’s plenty of parks and open green spaces situated throughout Forest Hills and the small town atmosphere is appealing for anyone looking for a more laid back vibe. 

8) Spring Hill 

Did you know that Spring Hill is one of the fastest growing towns in the Nashville area? The schools are getting better, plenty of new homes are being built, and it’s also a place where many young professionals are choosing to plant some roots as well. 

7) Murfreesboro 

Thanks to a population of well over 125,000, Murfreesboro is a place that has it all. Plenty of shopping, dining, and a thriving downtown that’s both charming and walkable. If you’re looking for something a little more lively than a small town but not quite as busy as the big city, Murfreesboro is the perfect solution. 

6) Mount Juliet 

If there’s one Nashville suburb that’s known for its authentic sense of community, many would say its Mount Juliet. And with a population of just over 31,000, it’s also the perfect size—not quite a small town but certainly large enough to have plenty of great amenities and community services. 

5) Thompson’s Station

According to, Thompson’s Station feels close to everything thanks to easy access to several major highways. Prospective home buyers will also love its rural-like setting, which of course is perfect for anyone who wants some distance from the hustle-and-bustle of nearby Nashville. 

4) Oak Hill

Although housing costs around Oak Hill can be slightly more expensive than other areas, most home owners here say its worth it. The schools are excellent, it’s not too far from Nashville, and you’ll even be close to Radnor Lake State Natural Area.

3) Nolensville 

Nolensville is continuing to grow, both in terms of population and popularity. But it hasn’t lost an ounce of small town charm and desirability, which is why so it ranks so high on's list. Simply put, Nolensville is definitely worth a look if you’re still open to multiple locations around suburban Nashville. 

2) Franklin 

If you’re wanting that classic small town downtown that’s bustling and feels friendly in every way possible, Franklin is the place for you. With a population of right around 8,000, though, housing options can feel limited, especially as more and more people look to make the move to this awesome Nashville suburb. 

1) Brentwood

Brentwood tops the best Nashville suburbs to call home and it’s highly-rated school district is a huge reason why. Many also love Brentwood because it’s just a little bit closer to Nashville than other sought-after cities and towns like Franklin and Nolensville, which can be a big deal for anyone who commutes daily.
