Murfreesboro vs. Knoxville? - 8/5/2014

I'm debating between a teaching position in Murfreesboro and Knoxville. I am a single 42 year old who is a personal trainer & fitness competitor, and enjoys being involved with church activities. Can anyone recommend one city over the other? I'm relocating from St. Pete/Clearwater, Fl. Ideally, I'd like an area that offers southern charm, friendly folks, festivals, restaurants, sporting events, hiking, boating, and biking/runner friendly. Of course the potential for meeting quality, Christian men would be an added bonus! I'm torn between the areas surrounding Murfreesboro and Knoxville! Thank you!!!

College Town - 1/15/2014

As a college town with Middle Tennessee State University, this city is growing fast. But the cost of living is comfortable and doesn't bear the rising prices as most major college towns. I find it very resourceful as far as nightlife, social life, and relaxing at the same time. Just minutes from Nashville, this town gives a lot more than takes from you.

African American Family - 9/19/2013

Would we fit in? We are a family of 4 from Mississippi, and we have thought about moving to the Nashville area (Murfreesboro). I am a Resident Assistant in a retirement assisted living home; my husband is a Bob truck driver; we have a teenager who will be in 8th grade; we have a high school graduate who is looking to attend a music production school/college. We are a church-going family. We are looking for a nice 3 bedroom/2 bathroom home or apartment in a nice neighborhood for under $800 a month. Is public transportation available?

Concerned Rutherford County Parent - 12/11/2012

I am concerned about the methods and approaches of my child's teachers at Seigel Middle School. Every day I hear about the way tests are given; rules that are highly suspect and vary class by class. If you have similar or related concerns, please voice your assesssment of Seigel Middle School.

Trapped Here for Now - 1/26/2011

Been living here about two years with my new wife, and we've been living like hermits for the most part. First her relatives got weird on us, and weren't too friendly after the initial visit, leaving us with no contacts whatsoever. Real estate is very reasonable, the only plus I can see to living here. Trying to establish any semblance of a social life is near impossible without attending church three times per week, and social events seem to center around eating; buffets, barbecues, and picnics, so there are a lot of obese people, which gets depressing for a fitness buff like me. It's very family-oriented, so you'd better have a kid or three if you want to fit in at all. The locals are often rude and snobby, which surprised me because I thought the Northeast had a monopoly on being jerks, but apparently not. I don't seem to get much flak for being a "Yankee", but I've always dressed like a slob anyway, being in construction, so I fit right in appearance-wise I guess. Trying to move to a more comfortable city, somewhere with maybe some running trails and more outdoor stuff to do, with friendlier people, but I can't seem to sell our little townhouse, so we are stuck here in Purgatory for the foreseeable future, until the housing market picks up, which could be forever, with the current cast of idiots in office.

If you are not from the south DONT LIVE HERE!!!!!! - 6/7/2010

My family decided to leave Las Vegas in order to find a place to live that was nore family friendly and a place to spend the rest of our lives. Well let me tell you that it's been nearly 3 years of pure hell living in this redneck ass backwards place of a city and state. I have a background in the Casino industry as a table games dealer as well as a supervisor. I have been in the customer service industry for over 25 years and I am now on my 16th month being unemployed in this state cause "there aint no casinos out here". Thats all i've heard since i've lived here and if you aint from the south then you are the enemy to these people!! I am not kidding. I was taught that when you look for employment you dress for success, well not here in good Ol Tennessee. The only suit that they own out here is the one they find at Goodwill to be buried in. I could not believe every job interview I would go on, I was dressed in a nice suit, had a fresh haicut,shave,etc. Well I was the only one!! In Tennessee you go out to job interviews in dirty jeans and a dirty shirt with a mouth full of chewing tobacco. What a joke! If you are from the south then Tennessee will be just fine but if you are a proffesional looking to take all your knowledge and desire to a new level then STAY WHERE YOU ARE!!!! We are moving back to Las Vegas and cant wait to end this 3 year nightmare.

cultural diversity - 4/20/2010

murfreesboro is a nice town but does not have any cultural diversity, plain speaking it is a very white city, unlike the metro nashville area (25miles away). you are shut out unless you fit the profile and looked down upon if you are hispanic or asian, very little middle class and a lot of people who have moved to a smaller pond to be a bigger fish. if you show up at the RIGHT PLACES you are accepted, otherwise you just one of those people.

Climate - 6/22/2009

Middle Tennessee seems to have touches of summer all year long. It's generally either very hot or mild. Spring and Fall are not your typical nice weather seasons. It is still very humid and usually warm. Winters are mild with a few days of cold temperatures.

Thinking of making a big move but need help - 7/24/2008

I've lived all my life in Massachusetts and am growing quite tired of the snobbery and the cost of living. I have been doing research all over the U.S. so I can get me and my family out of here and I think I'm liking the Murfreesboro area. The only problem is uprooting and moving away from our family. I would love to hear about life in Murfreesboro for a family with small children. Anything you can tell me would be appreciated. You can e-mail me at jdmcconeryan@verizon.net Thanks.

Murfreesboro TN - 2/11/2008

Murfreesboro is a great place to live. Friendly southern hospitality, good schools,growing community and close to a thriving metropolitan area with that being Nashville TN. Murfreesboro is about 28 miles from Nashville thus we have the smaller town atmosphere plus all the amenities' availabile to us in a larger city such as professional football and hockey and of course, the music industry. Great place to live and raise a family.

Overview of Murfreesboro - 12/8/2006

I've lived in Murfreesboro most of my life--about 38 years. I've seen it grow quite a bit. On the plus side, it has lots of good neighborhoods, restaurants, and businesses due to incredible growth in the past decade. Crime doesn't seem that bad. I feel safe pretty much anywhere I go. And the school system, while being extremely overcrowded, does a good job with their limited resources. The climate is moderate--not too hot in the summer, and in the winter, we get some really hard freezes, but for the most part, the winters are not so bad. We get maybe one of two average-size snows each year. On the negative side, traffic is REALLY BAD. You don't want to venture out from 7:00 A.M - 9:00 A.M. or from 5:00 - 7:00 P.M. The roads in this city are simply not equipped to handle the huge volume of cars that flow (very slowly) through it. They're working on the roads to a small degree--but nowhere near enough. This has been a huge problem since about 1995. Lots and lots of businesses. And home to a large university (Middle Tennessee State University). That's Murfreesboro's main identity.
