10 Small Rural Towns Near Nashville That Are Downright Delightful
Nashville is a pretty great city in itself, but it’s when you step outside the city borders that you’re truly able to have a taste of Tennessee. We’ll forever be in love with the culture – the great people and good food – it simply steals our hearts.
1. Kingston Springs
Located a hot second from Nashville - roughly 45 minutes - this is the perfect commuter city for those of you who would rather live in the midst of the woods. You can raise teeny tiny adventurers and enjoy a backyard full of trees down here!
This tight-knit town hosts quite a few events in their town square, and makes for a fun day trip if you take the train.
3. Leipers Fork
Home of the original Puckett's and only a couple of local folks, Leipers Fork is a magnet for the rich and famous - mainly because it's close enough to Franklin and tucked back in the rolling Tennessee hills.
Columbia is an up and comer, proffering a solid real estate market with some great prices on family homes. There has also been an influx in job opportunities, and you can even commute in to Nashville if need be.
5. Ashland City
The main draw of Ashland City is the watery beauty that surrounds it - really. If you're looking for an infusion of rivers and creeks in your countryside, this is where to go.
A popular city for Nashville commuters, Nolensville has just opened up a new high school and is great for antiquing and Amish goods. Fried hand pies, anyone?
7. Bell Buckle
As the quintessential southern city, Bell Buckle is perfect for a great seasonal festival for a hearty meal at the Bell Buckle Cafe.
We're forever in awe of the darling Springfield downtown area. Cute, homey and sweet, Springfield is great for a leisurely walk at twilight.
9. Whites Creek
A suburb of Nashville, Whites Creek is tucked back in the hills and has darling homes on quite a bit of land. The Fontanel is located back here, and they even have a tiny strip of cafes and Cajun cookin.' How can you argue with that?!
You know Adams because of their highly publicized Bell Witch, but this tiny Tennessee town is also host to a great community and beautiful seasonal landscapes.
