I have been living in Dickson since I was born. I'm 32 now, so I think I can safely speak on what life is like here. I have never had a desire to live anywhere else. I do a lot of traveling and I have been to some of the so-called best areas in the country, but I am always so happy to get back to Dickson and my great community of people who feel like family. Just lately we have been having a bit of a problem with more crime than usual, but that kind of thing comes and goes anywhere, from what I have seen. You won't find nicer neighborhoods anywhere, nor people who take pride in their homes and keep them nice.
When it's time to relax and have fun there's the Thunder Alley Family Center, the Storytellers Museum, the Governor Frank G. Clement Railroad Hotel Museum, and some great pubs and bars to grab some cold brews and a bite to eat. Two of my personal favorites are Abiff's Pub and The Wanted Saloon.
