Greetings ya,ll...

My wife and I will be relocating to Aberdeen this fall from the Tampa area. Tampa's my home, born and bread, but it's just gotten too big to suit us. Have visited Aberdeen several times and just fell in love. Would like some input from some of the Aberdeen locals. I know the county is dry, no big deal, and it's about 20 miles from nowhere, which is fine by us.. How about Harley riding, boating, other places to visit, etc? Any stuff we outta know or that you feel is of interest.

Thanks...Mr Ed

I am 29 years old and was born and raised in Aberdeen,MS. I have been gone for about 9 years. I still visit sometimes because my mother lives there, but it basically a very small quiet town its known as a retirement town and for their antebellium homes. There is not a whole lot to do there if anything. They do have a place called Blue Bluff or the Lock and Dam where people go boating and fishing and have barbeques. There are no jobs or new businesses there most people have to work out of town to find descent jobs.

Of all the places to move in this general area (NE MS), Aberdeen would honestly not be on my list. And I currently live in Aberdeen, albeit far outside the city limits. The school system is very poor, crime is surprisingly high (for such a small town), jobs are sparse, and aside from the Tenn-Tombigbee River and Blue Bluff Park, there just isn't very much that Aberdeen has to offer.

On the flip side though, if you want to live in the country (as most people are beginning to appreciate again), the outskirts of Aberdeen offers some great places to settle and there is prime access to such fantastic and nearby towns as Amory, Columbus, Starkville, West Point and Tupelo. A little further and you are within reasonable driving range of Memphis, Birmingham and Tuscaloosa.

If you want to live in this specific area, my advice would be to take a closer look at Amory. Amory has much more to offer, is a much, much nicer town and is more hospitable.

Also read my post at //www.city-data.com/forum/missi...lumbus-ms.html for more information on the surrounding area.
