- Suburb of Jackson, MS
Rating 4.26 out of 5 86 reviews
I’ve grew up in Madison, and still have family here that I visit quite often. While there may be a lot of people who trash Mississippi for being a bit subpar in certain areas, most of them haven’t spent any considerable amount of time here. The schools here are some of the best in the state, and are very good on a national level. While Madison itself isn’t very diverse, many of the surrounding areas are. The crime rate is very low, especially compared to Jackson, and you really get the feeling of a good old small southern town. While the housing market around here may be a bit more expensive than the rest of the state, I would think that would be expected. I would certainly say that you should not look over Madison just because the state gets criticized so harshly.
When I tell someone from Madison I'm from Jackson, they act like I'm poorer or dumber than them.They think they're superior to us bc they're rich or something.I have friends from there that don't do that, but a lot do.When I tell em I LIKE living in Jackson,they look at me weird cuz GOD FORBID I even LIKE a city with a high crime rate and no Starbucks.Once we went to a superbowl party hosted by my dad'sfriend,and hiskidsandtheirfriends were there.My parents kinda made us hang out with them.The friend's kids were nice,but their friends acted stuck upwhentheyheardwe'refrom Jackson.Our parents are making us move to Madison,they said "well Madisons a great city so".We said we like our house,"well you can find one like it"They didn't understand bc they're prolly never in dangerof being forced to move bc they live in a perfect city.I said I watched David Lopez and Lele Pons on YouTube(@11yo),the girl goes"oof" then"sorry"but I could tell she wasn't.City itself is ok, people are just snobby.
The place is very much on the suburban side of things. The schools in Madison are really good as well. The weather In Madison is also very good, but in the winter it will probably only snow 1 day if any, so if you like cold weather it probably won’t be the best place.
I have lived here over 15 years and more than anything, I always feel safe. It’s very suburban like and quiet.
Clean, neat, safe. I love this town! This area is still growing and adding new, quality shops. Despite all the bad press MS gets for education, the school systems in the Madison area are considered some of the best public schools in the nation. I love living here and raising my children here.
I like that you don't have to worry about the crime here, but I don't like the pretentious people. It does have a lot of good places to shop and eat.
Very safe and looks upscale because of the brick building codes. Obviously amazing compared to Jackson 15 min down the road. As a city in Mississippi, it’s great. As a city in the US it’s terribly boring, isolating, and not impressive even as a small town. There is nothing to do aside from going to see movies and eating, which fulfills the typical Mississippi stereotype of obesity. There isn’t even a bowling alley. Not super family friendly in the activity area, and there isn’t even a lot of significant nature in the area either. The best schools here are subpar. One good thing is that it’s pretty cheap compared to other states to live here, but residents will say it’s expensive.
The Mayor is diligent about the businesses that are allowed within the city limits. She recognizes the importance of a residential town in a metropolitan area
Madison is a wonderful community to live in. I lived in the city of Madison all of my life and it has provided me with a great sense of community and been a lovely place to grow up.
Madison is busy due to the number of residents but quiet in terms of crime and mischief. The area is well kept and the school system is superb. I would like to see more businesses though. Also not happy with HOA rules and fees.
Madison aka "Brick City" is an awesome place to live. The schools are fantastic and the city is super safe. There is a lot of new building and developing happening so property values continue to rise. There are tons of nice neighborhoods with pools and playgrounds for the kids. Madison has a couple grocery stores, some nice restaurants and places to pick up the essentials. There isn't really anywhere to go clothing shopping so you have to go to Jackson for that. It's a quick 10 minutes down the highway so it's not a bad drive at all.
I love the atmosphere of the city. I like how everything is clean and very family friendly. I live in Madison/Gluckstadt area where I rent a house. Majority of my friends live around me. The commute to work is very convenience and only takes me ten minutes. I am not far from the reservoir. We have many amazing food options in Madison that I love also.
Madison is a very family friendly town with a fair amount of activities to do. It has grown over the past several years by bringing in more retail stores so that it is not necessary to travel very far for everyday needs. Best quality of Madison is that it is statistically the safest town in Mississippi. Another valuable quality is the high-level school system that it provides.
Madison is a safe city that is outside of Jackson, MS. It has great star public schools and good club sports teams. Though, there isn't that much to do in the city. For teenagers there is much, but there are a lot of good restuarants in town.
It is a safe city. I never have to worry about break-ins or robberies. I can walk around and know i am safe. I would like there to be more places for youth to be able to spend time with friends.
Love the community and family friendly environment. Wish there was more stuff to do for young adults.
Madison is one of the best places to live in Mississippi. There are many restaurants, shops, and schools to choose from. I would like there to be more activities to do around the area for children.
