Kiplinger’s personal finance named Nashville No. 3 in its top 10 list of “Best Value Cities 2011.”
The commentary on its website suggests that Nashville’s unique neighborhoods are part of what makes it so special. Indeed, each neighborhood has its own distinctive character, such as East Nashville, 12th South, Hillsboro Village, Richland/West End and The Gulch.
Other notable characteristics cited in the report include Nashville’s 11,000 acres of public parks, its family festivals and concerts, and its restaurants and nightlife.
The report cites Nashville’s diverse economy as a key factor contributing to its value.
According to the report, Nashville’s cost of living is nearly 10 percent below the national average and nearly 151,000 new jobs will be created between now and 2019. The absence of a traditional state income tax is an added benefit. And of course, Nashville is a bargain for fans of live music with so many live music venues and honky tonks, which charge little or nothing for admission.
