Green Hills is one of downtown Nashville’s affluent areas, selected by residents for the shorter commute to downtown businesses and the three major universities. Aptly named, the majority of the residential roads are embraced by treelined avenues, making it easy to forget that it is ten minutes away from the heart of downtown Nashville. In the last few years, Green Hills has given rise to many entertainment stops as well as upscale shopping centers. In addition to this, the Bluebird Café, a famous live music venue sits on Hillsboro Road in the Green Hills. Formerly what once stood one of the earlier 1950s “strip centers”, now stands the Mall at Green Hills, with major shops like Nordstrom and the Apple Store.Lipscomb University, one of the major private educational universities calls the Green Hills home. There is also Hillsboro High School, a large public high school, and as well as the primary school, Julia Green Elementary School. The time travelled to Nashville’s International Airport depends on traffic, but is one of the easier commutes compared to other cities, like Denver, Colorado’s. In just 13 miles, it only racks up to 20 minutes by car. As mentioned before, Green Hills is favored by many with shorter commutes, the walking distances between destinations shorter, sometimes under two miles.
