Lincoln is a vibrant community known for its low cost of living and high quality of life. You can absolutely afford to live here and have fun. From the Haymarket District and its eclectic spirit right next to the University, to the 131 miles of hiking/biking trails through town, to tree-lined neighborhoods where neighbors are like family, there is something for everyone.
With more parkland per capita than Austin, Portland, Ore., and all but a handful of U.S. cities, an extensive (and growing) bike trail network, and a low cost of living, Lincoln is one of the fastest growing metro areas in the Midwest. There are lots of pubs, nightclubs, and dives around the city of Lincoln. The major industry generally in Nebraska is agriculture, the landscape, rolling hills, and fertile plains is the one major reason for the wild west lifestyle for most people in the state. Hence, it is common to see people walking down the street in a cowboy hat as they get their daily business done. The way of life in Nebraska is more peaceful and slower because people live rurally. The monthly rent is around $745 for a 900 square-foot apartment and the median home value is about $175,000.

Nashville real estate offers all of that, plus no state income tax and the best music scene on the planet. Nashville is famous for the Grand Ole Opry, the Ryman Auditorium (aka the Mother Church of Country Music) and twangy honky-tonks, but music is just a byproduct of the larger city culture. Music City is home to a community fiercely driven by a desire to create. The metro area has a blossoming job market and an exploding entertainment scene.
