Home to former vice president and Nobel laureate Al Gore, upscale Belle Meade is only five minutes from downtown Nashville. The neighborhood is actually a city within a city. Though it was incorporated into the greater metropolitan government in 1963, Belle Meade is still considered an independent city. It has its own mayor, police force, and city hall. Featuring broad, tree-lined streets and spacious lawns, it is easily one of Tennessee’s most prominent neighborhoods.
