I have lived in Medina since 2014 and I absolutely love it! I don't understand the negative reviews at all! It is such a peaceful town and in my opinion the friendliest town ever! Everyone I meet is super friendly, especially those working at Food Giant and Mom and Pop's Pizza another locations around town! I am not stuck up at all and I do not like to be around stuck-up people and I have not found that to be the case AT ALL! It is wonderful!

Medina is a small town in west Tennessee. The city is expecting a lot of growth in the next decade and will be welcoming to the new residents in the city. One thing that I like is that everything that one need in the city is about a 5-10 minute drive. It is also close to the city of Jackson, which is the bigger city around. One thing that I wish would change would be that there was more to do in the city and that I did not have to drive to Jackson for most things.
Medina is a great family-friendly community with a strong focus on health and wellness. With a couple new parks, ball fields, and projects underways for a splash pad and tennis courts, this is truly a great community. People look out for each other's well being and genuinely care. The value of homes are steadily increasing as new schools are being built and the community takes care of their homes and property in good faith.
