Thanks for the tips JacksonPanther I will love being able to go to Memphis and Nashville as I've never been there but always wanted to visit
I love Nashville. It's gotten to be a "big city" now, and has many, many fun things to do. And it's growing like a weed. Memphis isn't bad either, but really is a more southern city than Nashville (a bit ironic), in my opinion. Nashville is more cosmopolitan, and larger.

It's not a native plant, but will grow there. I grew up in central Mississippi, and my uncle had bamboo. As I remember, it only grew in the month of May (apparently highly dependent on the climate), but would grow a foot or so a day. You could almost see it move.

Bamboo in MS makes for a fast-growing and thick visual barrier between neighboring back yards. You can get the affect of wooded area with lush foliage within an extremely short period. It's definitely found in the Belhaven neighborhood in Jackson.

And yes, Booneville is a good town, centered around a large community college and 25 minutes from two nice larger towns: Corinth and Tupelo, and not too much further to Oxford and Starkville.

There is also Pickwick right up the Natchez Trace and as mentioned already Nashville is just a couple of hours up the Trace and drives to the mountains near Chattanooga a doable four or five hours.

Booneville school district is ranked 3rd highest in Mississippi based on student test scores.

The town is nice enough but slightly unremarkable visually. But there are nice residential areas, it's extremely safe, and there aren't really any bad areas to speak of. The climate is also moderate on Mississippi standards (average daily high temps in January and July are 49 and 89 degrees). The terrain outside of town becomes hilly and wooded, making for a nice area for a lakeside cabin for weekends and holidays.

Tupelo, which is about 40,000 population, is only about 35 minutes away too. It is large enough to have most of what you would need. Mall and other shopping, Sams Club, 2 Wal-Mart Supercenters and a Wal-Mart Neighborhood Market, Restaurants, concerts and festivals/events, etc.

Doesn't Tupelo have a fairly large civic center (given the small size of the town) that seats about 10,000 and can even have ice hockey games? I've read elsewhere on this site that they also have a really good antique car museum.

Yes, it's called the BanCorp South Arena and it seats 10,000. The car museum will be closing soon for good.

Too bad about the car museum. May Jay Leno could buy it, but he probably has an example of all those vehicles in his collection.
