Murfreesboro

Murfreesboro, Tennessee is one of the largest and fastest growing suburbs of Nashville.  Located within Rutherford County, this region is a central hub with a population of over 100,000 people.  This is a very popular place to live because of the excellent quality of life and high standard of living.

Murfreesboro sits southeast of Nashville alongside interstate 24 which is the main corridor used by the many people who live in Murfreesboro and travel to a job in Nashville.  The commute between Murfreesboro and downtown Nashville is roughly 45-60 minutes depending on the time of day. But for those who work in Franklin or Brentwood TN, the commute along Highway 840 is a pleasant, scenic ride that only takes 30-40 minutes from Murfreesboro.

Murfreesboro is home to the Blue Raiders of Middle Tennessee State University which boasts the largest undergraduate student enrollment in the entire state.  This college has also earned a reputation as “Tennessee’s Best” university.  With a strong commitment to both students and community, MTSU adds a special flair to Murfreesboro.

In addition to all that the university brings to the Murfreesboro area, there are many amenities available to those living here.  The West Fork of the Stones River flows directly through town and a scenic walking trail called the Greenway follows the river for several miles allowing residents to enjoy the natural beauty of the area.    Patterson Park Community Center, Cannonsburgh Village, and McFadden Community Center are also big attractions.   These community centers offer a vast array of activities including, but not limited to, aquatics, wellness classes, athletic programs, theatre, historic buildings, and lessons in history, outdoor playgrounds, game rooms, arts and crafts, and youth crime prevention programs.

People who move to Murfreesboro often benefit from the relatively low cost of living when compared to other areas in Middle Tennessee.  Housing is in Murfreesboro is more affordable than in the surrounding suburbs of Nashville with an average price of $160,000 for a single family home.  Like many areas of the country, the housing market suffered during the recent recession, but home prices have been steadily rising in 2012 and are up 7% since this time last year.

There is a strong awareness of culture and a deep appreciation for the arts in Murfreesboro.  The city hosts Main Street Jazzfest on an annual basis and there are multiple places such as the Center for the Arts and Murfreesboro Little Theatre that attract art exhibits, concerts, dances, magic shows and more.  There are even several museums in town which pay tribute to the immense history of Murfreesboro and Middle Tennessee.

As a way for the citizens in town to enjoy the magnificent landscape of Tennessee, the city has developed an intricate labyrinth of trails that stretching 12 miles and is called The Murfreesboro Greenway System.  The Greenway has 11 trailheads that connect historical sites, parks, neighborhoods and businesses. The trails are popular for walking, skating, jogging and bicycle riding.   Some trails even offer places for picnicking, golfing and hiking as well. Golfers like to hit the links at The Indian Hills Golf Club and the Old Fort Golf Course.

With so many wonderful amenities and natural beauty, plus the great quality of life that is experienced in Murfreesboro, it’s easy to see why in 2006 Money Magazine ranked this city as the 84th best place to live in the United States.
