Hi,we are from Colorado and looking for a change. How does anyone like Murray or areas around Murray? Got any advice on a good place to come visit for a possible great place to raise children in your area? We happen to stop by Murray on a resent road trip and found it to be friendly..........but don't know much about it. Anyone care to comment?

I lived in Murray for 4 years in the early 90's. I am originally from Chicago and live there now as well. i loved Murray. I hear it has changed a bit with it not being a dry county anymore (which I liked having by the way) but the people are friendly, it is considerablly safer and the feeling of a smaller town but your only an hour away from Paducah makes it not too small. I have friends that live there to this day and I would move back in a heart beat!
Good Luck on your search

puryear used to be a nice place to live, until mark lane moved his junkyard to cherry st. then all the trash followed. the city does nothing to make him clean it up. stay away from this town.

I actually live in Paris, but I work in Murray at Cracker Barrel on the weekends. For a college town, Murray still has a small town feel. Traffic is kind of nerve racking, but all in all, I love Murray. I believe there are a few factories. There are quite a few resturants, retail stores, and whatnot. Murray State is a great school, too, by the way!

Murray is a great place to live if you have a job or are retired. Good jobs are not easy to find in this area, even if you have a degree. I love it here, but I would advise anyone thinking of moving here to look into jobs before they move here.

Good luck
dont go there

...Mayfield is a town that has been over run by crooked government and mexicans...murray is your best bet but Paducah is better as far as work....

I find it interesting that many of the folks answering this question can't spell, nor do they have a great command of the English language. I can say with confidence that
1) Kentucky is my home, but it's changed a great deal, there are no jobs, and the coal mines destroyed most of the land (Muhlenberg County is my home and it looked like the surface of the moon when Peabody, Sinclair and other coal companies finished with it);
2) Murray State University has always been a great place to live and go to college, but;
3) One should get out in the world and find out about "mexicans" and others, develop a world view.

I hope that, if you do move from Denver to the Murray area, you manage to meet some people who are more enlightened, intelligent, fair, kind, open-minded, interesting and wittier than some of these rubes.

I grew up in Murray and went to MSU briefly. While at the time I hated it, and could not wait to get out in the world and find out about "mexicans" and develop my own world views, after seeing the world and much of the US, now I would move back there in a minute.(BTW, there are even mexicans in Murray now, which isn't a bad thing if they would learn the ENGLISH language!)

My parents have lived there for 38 years (still do) and it is a great little town, but you definitely need to find work before you move there. I live in Nashville, TN now, which is only 2 hrs away and always love to go "home" whenever I can.

It is a great place to raise a family. Although it is a growing city and there is still crime, it in no way compares to anyplace you will ever live. The public schools are good, the people are friendly and accepting, and the cost of living isn't terribly high.

Don't think for a minute that the fools that are posting on here that cannot read, write, or spell came from Murray! I am sure that there are some in Murray that are afflicted with illiteracy, but most of our parents taught us better than that!

Good Luck!

My mother lives in Buchanan, Tennessee and she goes to Murray a lot to save on money.
She saves on taxes and she gets a discount for being a senior citizen.
So once a month she really loads down her vehicle with grocerys.
