Sitting on the border between Davidson and Williamson counties near the Southern metropolis of Nashville, TN, the city of Brentwood is one of the Volunteer State's most prosperous and popular communities. Largely residential and famous for being the home of many famous country music stars, there are plenty of reasons why many Tennessee residents are making their way into Brentwood apartments for rent.
People who live here enjoy a warm climate, plenty of open space, and close proximity to everything Nashville has to offer. Since the entire Middle Tennessee area has been experiencing a boom in recent years, it should come as no surprise that Brentwood saw a whopping 58 percent jump in population from 2000 to 2010, according to City-Data.
French and English explorers were among the first in the Brentwood area, and there are many placards around the area that tell the story of the city's vital role during the Civil War. After that devastating skirmish in 1863, the area became a small village of outlying farms - until Nashville experienced a suburban sprawl during the 1960s and the city eventually incorporated in 1969.
One of the main reasons why this area has become so popular is because despite its prosperity - the average median household income is around $124,000 per year - the city has a dramatically low cost of living index, more than 4 points below the national average, according to City-Data.
Tennessee's first natural area and protected ecosystem, Radnor Lake, is home to a variety of habitats and wildlife preserves. With seven hiking trails - ranging from light to strenuous - this is the perfect place to get in touch with your natural side. Bring your camera, because there are spectacular views of downtown Nashville and the Cumberland River Valley from the top of Ganier Ridge.
