This is the launch of a new series on the CityLiving Blog called "Why I Love My Neighborhood." Over the next month or two, different members of the CityLiving Team will be featured explaining why they love living in their little niche of urban Nashville.
Why I Love…12South
By Erica Tober, Marketing Director
I moved to 12South in January of 2007 and could not be happier. 12South is the perfect neighborhood for me for many reasons. Number one, I have a golden retriever who relishes daily walks and trips to the park. 12South is one of the most walkable neighborhoods in Nashville, and is bordered on all sides by other walkable neighborhoods. Most streets have sidewalks, and those that don’t aren’t highly traveled. We often walk down 12th by all the shops and restaurants, over to Belmont Boulevard, into Green Hills or Oak Hill and most often to Sevier Park. I love that I can walk, with or without the pup, to Frothy Monkey for breakfast and Las Paletas for a popsicle. Not having to get in my car all the time is awesome.
Another thing I love about 12South is the people. I’m constantly meeting other people who live near me and who love the neighborhood as much as I do. The annual 12South Neighborhood Home Tour was held this past Spring, and it was so much fun to not only tour homes but meet so many ecelctic and cool neighbors. Starting this Saturday, the fine people of 12South are coming together for "The First Annual Concert Series in Sevier Park". I’m thrilled and can’t wait to go.
12South is also close to everything. By car, I can be at the Village Downtown office in about 12 minutes, to the Vandy area in less than 10, and to Green Hills or the interstate in about 5. I really can’t imagine myself living anywhere else!
