I grew up in Jonesboro and recently returned with my children. Jonesboro has something for everyone! It's a great place for shopping, dining and even nature walks! The downside, unfortunately, is the traffic. The streets are very congested most of the time.

I have enjoyed my stay in Jonesboro, Arkansas. It has grown tremendously and is continuing to do so. It is about a hour drive from Memphis, TN as well so there is always something to do. I recommend living or attending school here to anyone!
I love living in Jonesboro. I feel very safe here; we have great schools ranging from primary to secondary education. There are many job opportunities and our community is growing by leaps and bounds it seems almost everyday!
