Apex Moving + Storage has our finger on the pulse of Nashville, and we’ve noticed something over the last year or two. We’re helping a lot more people move into the Nashville area than we ever have before.

It turns out, our observation is correct. More people are moving to Nashville today than they were just a few years ago. This bustling city has recently been ranked as the 8th fastest growing city in the United States by Wallet Hub!

Why is Nashville increasing in popularity? There are a lot of great things that are attracting people of all ages to this area.

Low Unemployment Rate

One of the biggest benefits of moving to the area is a low unemployment rate. Because it’s a fast-growing city, there are countless new employment opportunities, and new opportunities are being created all the time. It’s a great place to come if you’re looking to expand your career.

Cost of Living

Compared to other large cities, like New York, Los Angeles, and even Minneapolis, Nashville is a more affordable place to live. For example, the median rent for a one-bedroom apartment in New York City is $2,821 a month, while a comparable apartment in Nashville is just $1,350, and you don’t have to give up the big city life either!

Food and Drink

You could live in Nashville for a lifetime and still never try all of the food and drinks that are available in this city. There’s no shortage of coffee shops, there’s a lively bar scene for those who like to come out at night, and there’s food for everyone’s tastes. From hot chicken to James Beard nominated restaurants, and of course, barbeque, there’s plenty to keep your taste buds entertained in Nashville.

The Music Scene

Of course, one of the biggest benefits of living in Nashville is the music scene. It’s literally called the Music City!

It’s true that Nashville is known for its country music, but that’s not the only genre you’ll find in this city. From Elvis to Bob Dylan to more modern bands like Paramore and Jack White, there’s plenty to enjoy for music lovers.
