Above post \"My Thoughts On Mt. Juliet\"
Thank you so much for your comments. You express my sentiments exactly. At this age, 62, I can\'t wait another 15 to 20 years for an area to develop. I like the convenience of a 15-20 minute to great restaurants, shopping and entertainment. Guess it\'s hard to get it all, but I\'m hoping since the 2013 writing of your post that things have grown a lot. Worth checking out. Thanks again.

My thoughts on Mt. Juliet
I visited Mt Juliet in apr 2013 and looked at houses w a realtor. I love Nashville and really wanted to like MtJ, but it didn\'t do it for me. It was very rural which is normal for lake property (I was looking at lake front only), but when you drove out 15 minutes to \'town\' there wasn\'t much there. Several strip malls, not many restaurants that I could see. There just weren\'t many amenities. I think that in 15 to 20 years, MtJ could be more of what I\'m looking for. It is a beautiful area, and if you could live with a 35-45 minute drive to Nashville to get great dining, shopping and cultural activities, then its worth checking out. But as I research places to live, I\'m realizing that I want that country feel on a lake, with all the amenities of a big town not more than 15 minutes away. We\'re focused on TN, SC and GA because of taxes and weather.
