    Better sooner than later though. If you're gonna do it you should do it before they get in school. Or if they're already in school, do it before middle school.

    You're welcome... not that you need advice from a single, childless dude though.

    Imagine a sleepy, bucolic college town. Then, build a completely new town around it, complete with a mall or two, and every big box store and chain restaurant you can imagine.

    Of course, every one moves to this new town, leaving the old one to decay into a decrepit ghetto.

    Of course, the brain trust of this town is minimal , so traffic planning has been atrocious.

    Nightlife? There are two or three decent bars. That's it.

    It's saving grace is that it is only 30 miles from Nashville.

    I think the reason traffic is bad is because MTSU exploded and then so did the city. Grew too much too fast, and in the really congested places there's not really any place to expand the roads because of businesses.. but I guess that's poor planning years ago.

    I think the main factor is how fast MTSU exploded.

    ^Yep.

    It's an ok town though. I like it- outside of the ridiculous amount of cops and the court system/tickets/etc being out to rob everyone.


    There's 1 cop per 5 citizens. Was just talking about it on the way home.

    Literally- every main street I turned down, I saw at least one cop. Ridiculous.

    Yeah, but since it's virtually impossible to speed in Murfreesboro anyway, it's not so bad.

    pssshhh... virtually impossibly by azz.

    Maybe if you're on a bicycle.

    Otherwise- you're getting a speeding ticket.

    Yep as I've said in the past...

    I spend .0001% of my time in the Boro, yet I've been pulled over twice and issued massive speeding tickets both times... Never in my entire life have I even been pulled over other than in Rutherford county - where I spend no time at all.

    F that. If I get another ticket there again, I'm boycotting the county and will take the long way to Knoxville if I have to. I don't care.

    I can't speak to the Boro now. But I lived there for awhile about 10 years ago and enjoyed it. I liked that it was a good sized town where you could always find something to do, yet it wasn't overly crowded/congested like some major metropolitan areas. But judging from some of the posts in this thread that might not be the case anymore. Still, I'd say it's a fun town and at least you'll be a reasonably short drive from LP field. It's no Chicago. But that's not entirely a bad thing IMO.
