April 9, 2021

Nashville is often referred to as the “Athens of the South,” and it’s clear to see why this city full of culture, industry, and infrastructure is an attractive place to work. But for those looking to live in a quieter place away from the busy city, La Vergne is an ideal town offering a friendly community and ample amenities. 


La Vergne is less than 20 miles from both Nashville and Murfreesboro, placing you in the middle of two large cities with ample job opportunities, top schools and universities, shopping, entertainment, and more. There are few towns as conveniently located as La Vergne, and its proximity to I-24 makes it a hub for neighborhoods, restaurants, and family-friendly fun. But you don’t have to leave the city to enjoy all it has to offer. Percy Priest Lake is only a few minutes away by car and offers a variety of activities from boating and swimming to picnicking on its “sandy” beaches. 


Because I-24 runs through the town, and other major interstates are within a 15-minute drive, La Vergne is also an attractive place for businesses to set up shop. They receive the benefit of more affordable real estate than downtown Nashville while staying centrally located to attract the best possible workforce. Top large employers within a 10-minute drive of La Vergne include Ingram Content Group, Bridgestone/Firestone, Venture Express, Saks Fifth Avenue, Nissan North America, Asurion, and Taylor Farms. There are also dozens of top-notch hospitals in the area, making La Vergne an ideal place to live for those in healthcare as well.


La Vergne is a historic town. With origins dating back to the mid-1700s, there is plenty to entertain history buffs. Although it was virtually wiped out during the Civil War and again by tornadoes in the year 1900, the city continued to persevere and rebuild.

La Vergne retains the feel of a close-knit Southern community, while also offering all the conveniences of a modern city.


In a 2011 study by CNN Money, La Vergne was named the “13th Most Affordable City in the U.S.” Because of its close-knit community and close proximity to Nashville and Murfreesboro, La Vergne is home to high-quality apartment complexes such as Summer Creek Apartment Homes.
