Very Nice Place 4 rating By FrasierID ( Mar 20, 2019) There is one review on this page that says murders, etc. are a problem in Germantown. Completely and wildly incorrect. Germantown does indeed suffer from some crime issues coming from the adjacent dysfunctional City of Memphis, mostly a few shoplifting and property crimes. Police ...Read More are focused and plentiful and fire services are excellent; response times for any issue are very quick. There are a lot of green spaces and parks and a slowly growing set of dining options. Schools are very good as well, which results in strong property values. High quality of life is Germantown's best asset, and that is guarded vigorously. The only negative seems to be a somewhat arrogant mayor who has tried to push multifamily and other projects many residents don't want. Read Less
just outside the #2 DEADLIEST CITY IN AMERICA! 1 rating By Anonymous ( Feb 17, 2019) memphis brings the crime to germantown, no place safe in shelby co! germantown is not immune from crime, plenty of robberies, carjackings and murders happen all the time. criminals prey on the wealthy! remember just going to work or a b-ball game can turn deadly! there is no plac ...Read More e safe in shelby co. what's your life or kids life worth! you've been warned, 2019 has started off with a lot of murderers, this could be the year "#1 DEADLIEST CITY IN AMERICA." don't think it can't happen to you!

The New Germantown of Tennessee 3.5 rating By Anonymous ( Apr 26, 2018) I have lived in Germantown, Tennessee for many years now. It is a constant evolving and developing community with wonderful schools and job opportunities very close by. With few shopping centers and entertainment places around, there are plenty other local history attractions and ...Read More famous parks open to the community. It holds precious history about the land and there are also famous local museums in the area as well!

Lots of new housing developments are continuing to take place in Germantown, which helps the city look more improved and nicer for the residents. It also makes up for a lot of the construction and road work here. This also raises the price for rent and the development for newer homes.

Although the crime is fairly low in this area and the weather can be pretty beautiful in the summer, Germantown is really close to lots of businesses and can be really bad during traffic hours. Overall, it is still changing for the better and more and more people continue to move here! Read Less
