Murfreesboro is an interesting place for folks who have been here awhile. I moved here for college in 1995 and now live in the Blackman area about 5 minutes from Medical Center/I-24.

It’s interesting really because I can get home from a Preds game in about 35 minutes.  That’s faster than some people who actually live in Davidson County.  So in a way I definitely consider this side of the Boro to be more Nashville oriented. If you live in the middle of the Boro though you definitely live in Murfreesboro.  There are places in town that take me about as long to get to as it does to get home from a game or to travel downtown on a weekend.

Pretty unreal to think about for anyone who has been here for a good amount of time.

Yeah...its different than it used to be.  I live in Smyrna...and there have been times it's taken 45 minutes to drive to a place "deep" inside Murfreesboro with traffic around drive-time.

Huh. For some reason I recall a stretch of 24 being a 2-lane highway at some point near Nashville. I guess that's only near a conjunction. Or maybe I just can't remember anything, haha

I-24 in the other direction (to Clarksville) is as soon as it gets past Briley.

I-24 was two lanes on each side LaVergne to Bell Road until 1999.  Construction was nearing completion when I moved from Smyrna to the Grassland area in Williamson county in late 1998.

I live in Blackman as well (Stonecrest/Puckett Crossing) and I find the traffic at Medical Center and I-24 highly annoying most of the time.  Outside of that, this isn't a bad place to live and yes, I identify with Nashville.  Nobody knows what Murfreesboro is outside of Tennessee.

Downtown Franklin is so nice.  The shops, the restaurants and the surrounding homes make this one of the South's greatest little towns.  Downtown this evening (and free parking  yeah!)  

Yeah...Franklin is pretty awesome.  You should drive out to Leiper's Fork during the day and see that area, as well.  Middle TN has a lot of really awesome places to visit.  Lynchburg (Jack Daniels Distillery)...Bell Buckle...several Civil War battlefields.  Drive part of the Natchez Trace.

I drove a little bit of the Trace on Sunday and the colors were still good.  Not sure how much is left after the rain.

@KJHburg, in your first set of photos, #10 (tan and glass office building) will include two floors of Spaces, and office sharing company which is part of Regus Offices.  There is also a Spaces in downtown Nashville in the 222 building.  Regus and Spaces have over 3,000 locations around the world.

Okay thanks.  Spaces is rolling out a few locations in Charlotte too.  Plus 2 hotels are going up right door I think it was a Hyatt Place and a Marriott brand too.

That complex will have 5 or 7 buildings, can't remember which.

My business partner and I use Regus when meeting with clients in Nashville (including Brentwood and Franklin), Tampa, Orlando, and Jacksonville.  Very convenient to have all of that with one vendor.
