How is Henderson, TN? Were thinking moving out there. My brother and his fam live there and they like.
I have two small kids, and looking for a place that is kid friendly. Also that is in the country but close to city with shopping. Need some insight on this town.

Life long resident here... this is a quiet place, nothing really too do or see but it's a good place for family living. Jackson is where you would go for everthing you want that Henderson will not provide (ie) wal-mart, mall, restaurants etc. Hop e this helps.

i live just down south form henderson (finger) been here a little more than a year now and LOVE it.
i dont have kids and am a quiet country girl myself, but the entire area this direction is quiet, seems very safe and everyones been so nice!
henderson has acess to basic amenities, a couple small grocery stores, a freds general, a couple dollar stores, co-op, a few small boutique type stores and a suprising number of fast food and small eateries lol.
i whent to their bbq festival last year and it was realy nice! got a very quaint small downtown feel! and just since ive moved down here ive noticed a number of "beautifuaction" proects going on.
henerson does seem to be "owned" be the university though and i wish there was a little more draw for small buisnesses to come into the area.
on the other side of 100 is chickasaw park which is lovely, trails, camping a small lake, horseback riding and a lovely resturaunt.

youll have to head upto jackson for the bigger amenities, (target, walmart, larger resutraints, ect) but your close enough to jackson that its not that much of an incvonvenience.

i love it down here!!!

Thanks so much for your responses. Every little bit of info helps. How far of a drive is Jackson? How is the job market?

take sme about 10 mins to get from finger to the 45/100 crossover in henderson, and about 15 mins to get from there to south jackson....
commute for me is straight up rt45 and even when theres traffic it seems to move nicely.
cant say what the ob market is like, woul depend on what you do/qualifications/want to do.

Thanks. Im in the medical records field. So probably will be looking for hospital or doctors office. My fiance is in the fiber optics field. What cable or fiber optic companies are there? Also, how would I go about finding a house to rent? Usually I would just go on craigslist but theres not much for Henderson. Thanks so much for all your replies!

It should'nt be to hard to find work for the both of you, as far as a place to live I would try contacting local real estate agents so they might could turn you on to something that matches what you need or looking for.
