Brentwood, TN is a small town about 20 minutes south of Nashville. Brentwood is a beautiful suburb made up of mainly middle and upper-class families. A majority of families are caucasian with little diversity in the city. The public school system, Williamson County, includes nationally ranked schools that provide children with the best public education Tennessee has to offer. Brentwood is also a very safe area with little to no crime. Houses in Brentwood average at about $400,000, but in my opinion, the high cost of living is worth the exceptional school system and community. Most people residing in Brentwood do not work in Brentwood, which is not at their disadvantage. If you are not looking to commute, jobs are easy to find throughout the Brentwood area. The commute time from Brentwood to downtown Nashville is about 15-20 minutes by interstate. My experience living in Brentwood has been exceptional, and I would recommend living in Brentwood to any family who can afford it.

Brentwood is your typical suburb, full of large houses and upper middle class families, where everyone knows their neighbors. It's close to Nashville, giving people of all ages something to do. The little kids have many parks, as well as the zoo to go to. Teenagers have many opportunities to attend festivals and concerts. Young adults can visit the different bars and go honky-tonking. And adults have a multitude of new restaurants to try.
The only downside to Brentwood is if you are coming from a place full of diversity, do not expect to find that here.
