Tennessee is known for a lot of things, including its celebrities, but it also has more than a few good areas to live. A move is stressful regardless of who you are but when you’re a single mother, it can be even more stressful because you’re doing the planning and research by yourself. Understandably, you don’t need any more stresses added to your plate. Fortunately for you, Tennessee does have its fair share of good areas and while you have your work cut out for you, if you have a little patience, you’ll come to a conclusion.
No matter what type of lifestyle you live, Tennessee has something for everyone but understand the research aspect can test your patience. I still recommend you do your own research but in order to help you with that research, I’m hoping that within this article, you’ll find some information you can find both useful and maybe use. I will provide you with a small list but keep in mind that the list will be small and just because a city isn’t listed, doesn’t make it bad.
1. Signal Mountain, Tennessee
This is one of the smallest on the list but it certainly has more than one reason to be on the list. The crime rate is more than impressive and when you compare it with some of the other options, you can assume you’ll be safe here. It does have some of the highest rent but it also is at the top of the list when it comes to high school diploma rates. To add to its good points, it has one of the lowest unemployment rates in Tennessee.
2. Brentwood, Tennessee
This city is a suburb of Nashville and there’s more than enough reasons for it to be on the list. The median household incomes which is more than enough for some residents but it has more than that going for it. It has a very low crime rate, making it one of the safest places and it has a good high school diploma rate as well. The median home prices and rent prices are fairly high but with all its qualities, it’s more than worth it and besides, no place is perfect.
3. Germantown, Tennessee
This city is just east from Memphis but that is far from the reason it has made the list. It ranked well in regards to education and it also ranked well median income and median home values. Germantown had the highest high school diploma rate in Tennessee and comes second in median household income. Germantown is known for its annual horse shows and charity shows, as well as its annual festivals for those not entertained by horses.

It has a low unemployment rate, a more than decent crime rate, and a relatively low cost of living, which residents certainly enjoy. Lakeland is also known to be scenic and beautiful because of the natural views and the country way of living there.

5. Spring Hill, Tennessee
Spring Hill is just 30 miles away from Nashville but it made the list for its own qualities. It has a good high school diploma rate and a low unemployment rate for starters, and this has made it one of the most educated cities in Tennessee. Spring Hill has had a great rating in regards to cost of living which definitely appeals to those who live there. For anyone who is into history, Spring Hill has its fair share of historical attractions and for outdoorsy people, it has its fair share of parks for you to enjoy.
6. Oakland, Tennessee
Oakland is a small town on the list and it made the cut because of a few reasons. It has a relatively low unemployment rate and a reasonably low crime rate but the main reason it made the list is because its low cost of living. Oakland is growing faster and faster every year and with good reason, and I’m sure residents of Oakland agree.
It probably didn’t come as much of a surprise that Tennessee had good areas of living, especially to current residents. I hope you got some good information from this article and maybe it helped you come to conclusion or at least provided you with some information about some of the cities/ towns in Tennessee. I’m confident you’ll be able to make a decision as long as you do your research properly and explore your options carefully.
