Have a sister-in-law residing near Nashville.

Everyone I've met down there is friendly, fairly conservative in dress code and mannerisms. I went to a relative's wedding last year over there and was surprised to learn I was the only person attending wearing a loud limey fire-engine green Hawaiian shirt with complementary fruit imprinted on it. Everyone else dressed like they were either ready to go to church or someone's funeral. Except for the polite manners, newer cars, and hair styles I could've sworn I was time warped back to the 1930's. Yes'm, no ma'm, yes sir.....well, I'd rather hear that than the usual urban lingo rhyming with go "truck" yourself, moron.....

Nice state: weather, tick and chigger count same as Mizzou.


Thats interesting cause I go through Nashville to get to Murfreesboro dozens of times but Ive NEVER stayed in Nashville like that as a tourist. Some friends of mine are going to a big party there tonight.

I ve been to Chattanooga as a kid and what we did was we went to Lookout Mountain and then we went inside of the cave underneath which was basically Ruby Falls. It was really fun and my friends were talking about a place called Dollyworld or something like that but I wanna go there.

Haha! I live in Misery and you are correct sir, We have the most REPORTED meth labs in the USA. PROUD!!!! I live right next to a trailer court that everyone in the county has deemed "Meth Mountain". But we also have the most Meth Busts as well... so our Po Po are doin the job as best as they can >.>

And about Mary Jane, my High Schools Wikipedia Page had "Smoking the Reefer" as one of the Afterschool Programs listed for about 2 years until someone finally caught it and took it out >.>

Love it. I'm not from there, nor have I ever lived there, but I visited Memphis and it was amazing. Beale Street was full of music and awesome food (though the food was extremely pricy.) I stayed with my mom's friend and her sons, got to meet some of the locals, and it sparked an obsession with sweet tea and country music. >_> But I mainly keep that stuff around to remind me of it until I get to go back. When I went, it was very family-oriented.

I guess I should have added that my niece's wedding was a bit west of Nashville. I'm uncertain the exact location (Columbia, TN ??) other than an elephant sanctuary is about 20 miles away from she and her husband's residence. We opted for a 4-star chain motel 50 minutes away next to an Interstate versus and "-3" star local motel located a sling shot's throw from the town limits or 5 minutes from the wedding site (that also looked from the outside as though it was a sanctuary for crap throwing lemurs). Possibly we misjudged the local locale but it's 1 of those areas where if you sneeze twice while driving you will have missed seeing 90% of the town limits.

If one must disparage poor ole Tennessee pick on the Memphis city limits to the Mississippi state line using US Highway 78 as the divining rod. If I had to visit Memphis for ANY reason that required an overnight stay I would seek motel accommodation in Mississippi rather than Memphis, TN or West Memphis, Arkansas because, at my age, the sense of security and awaking alive to see the next morning overrides the usual sense of adventure I used to rely on in my youth. I realize most large American metropolitan areas possess an overabundance of "comfort" women and many can be both very assertive and entrepreneurial given the rules of the trade. I don't wish to put up or deal with it; I prefer a pleasant sane evening reasonably assured of a good night's rest rather than worrying about herpes, AIDS, pimps, loss of wallet.

You dont what Memphis is really like until you actually live there trust me. You might wanna look up the city on Wikipedia you might not like what you read. It is a good tourist attraction because of the downtown area and Elvis Presley's House but its really a miserable city and not a good city to raise a family.

When I was younger I had an Internet stalker that lived in Tennessee.




Memphis has a cute little pyramid though.

Several reasons why Tennessee is better than Mississippi:

Tennessee has a much bigger population

Tennessee has 5 major ciities with populations more than 150,000

Tennessee has more tourist attractions

Tennessee has one of the richest history in all of the south

Tennessee has more jobs and schools available not to mention that one of colleges there ranked the top 100 in the nation
