Only certain areas like Whitehaven. It's not all that bad and inadequate to raise a family.

As for the high school thing, the majority of the people from there I felt were two-faced and can go to hell. But that's just me.

I was born and raise in Whitehaven you cant find no good friends in that neighborhood much less the entire city but Whitehaven is pretty unique on the other hand compare to North, South and East Memphis. One of my favorite parts of Memphis is Germantown, Cordova, Collierville and Bartlett

Definitely Bartlett and Germantown are great family areas. The major areas I lived in was Bartlett, near White Station high, and now over near Shelby Farms and SWCC Macon Campus.

I've been visiting family who lives as far east as Barlett and as far south as Horn Lake, MS. It used to down to Southaven MS for shopping and grocery but that was during the early 2000s and now they moved all the businesses further south. I mean like when you down to Desoto County half of everybody would say "Im from Memphis" lol thats how it is. I plan on moving to Nashville after I finish school so that I can get started on my career and get a house there once Ive saved up enough money.

As long as I'm far from certain members in my family, I'm good anywhere.

I'll bet Mississippi has more kudzu than Tennessee.

Beale Street area of Memphis appears safe to visit day or night. Area Jim Jarmusch filmed when making movie about various foreign tourists becoming stranded in downtown Memphis is also safe area for tourism or fooling around. Tennessee highways seem smoother than Mississippi's. Possibly it's the soil conditions than affect Mississippi; possibly 1 state's highway subcontractors took more shortcuts on building materials than the other. I don't know that but I do know a certain vehicular wheelbase will beat your teeth to death and rattle the springs off your ride should you choose the I-55 corridor as a means to access Louisiana. Highly recommend you avoid I-55 and opt for a blue highway or local 4-lane red one. Your skeleton will thank you for that choice.

Rather than make fun of TN or MS relentlessly I recommend a visit to the civil war memorial around Vicksburg, MS. I'm not that much of a history buff re Civil War but if you can visit and tour this remarkable site you can get a fair idea how challenging it was logistically to move troops and gain access to land mass in the Vicksburg area while under sniper fire. Mississippi does present a challenging topography and climate. No doubt pirates (no, not the bodacious space variety) were a problem in the Mobile and Biloxi areas during the 18th century. And for grins I guess you could watch George Clooney et al in O Brother, Where Art Thou. The Coen Brothers have developed a real, albeit strange, feel for that aspect of the old South. Their movie The Ladykillers with Tom Hanks et al centering around an elderly religious Southern woman and some klutzy casino bank robbers also lends atmosphere to the ephemeral qualities life in the unseen south can afford anyone if he/she/they just take the time to investigate.

Go and experience before you diss. Then again, the mosquito, state bird of Minnesota,,,,,or is it really Mississippi's?

I live in western Kentucky and Tennessee is like 15 minutes from my house. I've driven through it a lot of times. East Tennessee is like western North Carolina and west Tennessee reminds me of Georgia for some reason.

lol. I bet NC has more kudzu than Mississippi. When I lived there it was EVERYWHERE. It was on barns, powerlines/telephone poles, clearings in the woods, abandoned houses, etc.

Don't worry, I wasn't reprimanding you H202 re regional comparisons or anything of that nature. I'm just an old guy posting witticisms and -ism's on the net.

I got held up in Nashville for quite a few hours once while I was waiting for a connecting flight. I got a chance to check out the Grand Ole Opry. Pretty cool and unexpected experience. I'd go back for a visit if I had the time.
