Can I get a good pour of bourbon in town? Yelp was no help. Decent selection at liquor stores?
Wet counties nearby. Missouri is close with looser liqour laws. Paragould is maybe 10 miles, not 30.

Where is the "nice" area of town with newer construction homes and amenities?
Anywhere on the outskirts. Some nice areas closer in. Avoid north of downtown/east of downtown. Downtown itself is kinda neat or trying to be. Some neighborhoods on the east side. Most other places good to go. Lots of newer developments to the south and towards Paragould.

Do you always use MEM as your airport? If not, where and why? I'm not a big fan of the prop plane idea out of the local airport that I read about. Air Choice One?
Memphis. Maybe Little Rock. Neither are great, but will connect you on a big boy plane to bigger hubs.

What are good day trip activities nearby? My wife and I love to hike and visit small towns that have some history and charm.
Memphis is good for cultural stuff. Check out nearby state parks in the Delta and Ozark foothills. Johnny Cash boyhood home is in the area.

What areas should I avoid? I know about West Memphis, but are there areas of Jonesboro and surrounding areas to avoid, and why?
Northside. Nearby small towns are hit and miss. Blytheville is bad. There's plenty to do away from the bad towns though.

How friendly are the people in the region? I am used to Louisville, where strangers talk to strangers like they have been long lost friends, and my wife isn't looking forward to leaving that.
Uh, hit and miss. I've seen better. Not a cultural norm to talk to strangers like friends. Of course, a few people will.

Other things to know: Off! is your friend. And potential life saver.

If some people don't want to PURCHASE liquor on Sunday, then don't do to the store and buy it.


If some people want to sell liquor on Sunday or drink liquor on Sunday why on earth shouldn't they have that option?


Sorry I don't understand or agree with these kind of social engineerings ! to what end? what does it accomplish? what's the true purpose? Everyone's sabbath is not the same, and religion doesn't make people holy, and alcohol on Saturday night is the same thing as alcohol on Sunday or Monday. What possible difference does it make that I can buy alcohol at 1030p on Saturday night, but I can't buy alcohol when the clock strikes 1201a Sunday, one and one-half hour later?


That's nutty.
It accomplices nothing.

I disagree, Jonesboro has a lot of people and the prices are high because of the college. Once you get to the outside of Jonesboro, prices start falling.

Well they must have something going for them: Miss Arkansas was crowned last night is from Jonesboro and I may be wrong but I think last years Miss Ark was also from there.
As whether or not you can buy booze on Sundays. I am one who is fond of my wine, love it everyday and thank God for showing the farmers how to grow good grapes, but I also can plan ahead of time so I don't have to buy it on Sunday. Hubby does the same with his scotch.
