Mt. Juliet is known as “the city between two lakes” due to its proximity to Old Hickory Lake and Percy Priest Lake. Located only 17 miles east of downtown Nashville, it’s currently one of the fastest growing cities in Tennessee, possibly because of the ample outdoor opportunities, combined with highly rated schools and low taxes. Multiple recreation areas, public parks and playgrounds are spread throughout the city and a renowned farmers’ market provides fresh, local fare and the perfect Saturday morning activity. Large employers in town include FedEx and Under Armour and a variety of entertainment options are available in and around Mt. Juliet.
