Cheatham County is a great place to retire, whether you come here to do it or work toward it

With all its outdoor recreational opportunities, walking trails, biking routes, green space, waterways, hunting land, culture, history, arts, etc. as well as local healthcare facilities — all close to the big city amenities of Nashville, Cheatham County is a great place to retire.  It also must be a great place to live until you retire.  A new report released by financial technology company SmartAssets, shows that Cheatham County is ranked number 8 in Tennessee and number 603 in the nation on the list of counties whose citizens are best prepared to meet their retirement goals on time.  For some perspective, that is out of 95 counties in Tennessee and approximately 3,070 counties in the United States.
