I've received some very good information on this site regarding the suitability of Olive Branch and Collierville (TN) as places to potentially call home.

I keep stumbling upon information regarding Hernando as being a nice place to raise a family, small town feel but yet close to civilization.

Can anyone provide any insight or perspectives for me on Hernando?

I have 2 children, 6 and 4, thus good schools are of importance.

How about neighborhoods? Preference is some place that is established with homes in the range of 5-10 yrs old, lot sizes of 0.5 acre +. We practically live outside, so having areas for the kids to play and ride their bikes is important.

Thanks for your feedback.

Yeah I have kin up there with young kids and they absolutely love it. One is a schoolteacher in Hernando, in fact. Hernando is really close to Memphis, it's probably more expensive the Olive Branch. I like going shopping up there, there's some very nice malls (modern outdoor malls, not giant indoor flea market type places). Though I never been in it, their wal-mart is freaking HUGE. Hernando is definitely beyond "small town" at this point I think.

edit: oops, I meant the malls and such are in Southaven, which is just up the interstate like 5 minutes.

Anyway, they seem to love Hernando.

I never saw the bad side of Hernando, but near the interstate there's some really nice higher end development type neighborhoods. In the last decade it's become much more crowded, if you want to be reasonably isolated (ie a few acres) you'll probably have to be a bit out of town.

Hernando is really nice - only drawback is that if you work in Memphis, could be quite a drive.

Most of the new subdivisions in Hernando are east of the interstate at the Hernando exit, within a couple of minutes of Hernando High School and the new Wal-Mart, roughly near the area bordered by I-55, Byhalia Rd, Jaybird Rd, and Holly Springs Rd. The area near the intersection of Thousand Oaks and Jaybird Rd has some very nice subdivisions. On the west side of the interstate, there is also a subdivision with big 2 acre plus lots of Robertson Rd, just south of I-69 and west of I-55. The areas outside Hernando are still a mix of undeveloped land with subdivisions here and there. Lewisburg schools just to the east of Hernando are also very good and basically brand new. I believe the subdivisions with large homes off College Rd. just south of Olive Branch are zoned in Lewisburg schools.
