I think landscaped beauty is probably more apt, but there are great views of hills surrounding all of the development. 

I've defended Cool Springs on here before, but I really do think it isn't as bad as many around here say. As far as suburbia goes, its pretty much the best you could ask for. 

Well, on that we can agree... as far as Nashville area suburbia goes it's about as good as it gets.

Franklin and Cool Springs have restrictions on building on hilltops, so pretty much anywhere you stand in cool springs you can look around and see green hills. Plus there are a ton of trees everywhere, even the parking lots have spots with trees built into them to break the monotony and give shade. There are restrictions on billboards so you don’t have to stare at bunny bread advertisements while waiting for a green light (compare that to the drive down Hillsboro in Green Hills). There are lots of reasons to like Cool Springs. People who work there typically like working there, and people who live there like living there, from what I’ve gathered.

^My office is there and I hate it.

I wasn’t speaking for everyone. My brother used to work for Mars in cool springs and he hated it too. I just meant that generally, by speaking with many people over the years, I get the impression that most like working there. But that’s just from what I’ve gathered, not through any scientific polling or anything.

This picture is way later than the others.  Im going to say this is at the oldest 1997.  I lived off of General George patton from 1992- 1997.  for most of that time the closest Kroger was on highway 96 in franklin. this picture has a kroger in it so it has to be at least 1995 or 6.  but my freshman year at Centennial, 1996-1997, Mallory ln dead ended at Jordan road, and I had to go around to Liberty Pike.   and Mallory is mostly finished here, so 1997 at the earliest.

I know this is in Coffee County, but this thread seemed the best spot to place this story...

The Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival and Coffee County officials are nearing a deal to keep the festival in Manchester for the next several years, ease traffic congestion leading to the property and pave the way for more events at Great Stage Park.

Williamson County has landed in the top 10 richest counties in the country, as ranked by Forbes magazine.

The county ranks seventh on the list with a median household income of $104,367.

“Williamson County attracts new business with low costs — it has the lowest county tax in the Nashville area, no state income tax and the Nashville area has a 4% lower cost of living than the national average,” Forbes wrote. The county came in ahead of Arlington County, Va., outside Washington, D.C., and home to many federal workers and contractors. Williamson was behind Los Alamos County, N.M., home to the Los Alamos National Laboratory.

Life Time Athletic Franklin opened the brand's first Nashville-area athletic resort at 5020 Carothers Parkway in early November. 

The $30 million, 124,000-square-foot building has 300 employees. Included in the complex are nine bodies of water throughout the indoor/outdoor aquatic centers, a full-treatment spa, two basketball courts, group exercise studios, a private medical practice and indoor/outdoor dining venues. The Franklin location is the 128th destination in North America for the Minnesota-based company.

I drove by it last week (on my way to see my wife in the emergency room, naturally) and Lifetime was absolutely packed to the gills. I don't think there was a single open parking spot on the entire campus. 

Yes, $200 seems like a lot, but I have been told they even have full childcare AND that childcare includes fitness classes (e.g. martial arts, gymnastics) for the kiddos. Perfect for the WilCo suburbanite lifestyle.

The childcare piece is huge. As a parent with kids you could easily look at this as $100 for the membership and $100 for multiple hours of childcare (normal rate is $15/hr for a couple kids at home).

I don’t think $200/month is all that outrageous. I pay $100/month for a family pass to the Gallatin Rd YMCA. It also includes childcare, which is awesome. The Y is decent, but if the facility was top notch, and amenities were even nicer, I can see spending that.
