Some of the best things about living in East Nashville: proximity to some of the most delicious and interesting restaurants in the city, excellent shopping, a fantastic park (Shelby), a tight-knit community and, in certain corners of the neighborhood (Lockeland Springs in particular), a level of walkability you won’t find in most of our city.
If that’s the kind of stuff you prize, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better area of Nashville to set roots.
