A rapidly growing city in a rapidly growing county, Murfreesboro serves up a great quality of life in a vibrant community. Rolling Stone dubbed it "a surprisingly hip town" in 2005, and Money ranked it among the best U.S. places to live in 2006. Home to Middle Tennessee State University, Murfreesboro offers a fun college scene. The Avenue of Murfreesboro, an open-air shopping center, and Stones River Mall, surround our 10,800-square-foot campus, provide dining, entertainment, and shopping galore. Historic downtown Murfreesboro provides additional shopping and dining experiences, with shops and restaurants encircling the pre-Civil War courthouse.
Outdoor activities abound along the seven-mile Stones River Greenway System. You can step back in time for a peek at early Southern life at Cannonsbugh Village and Stones River National Battlefield, or enjoy musical events like the Main Street Jazzfest and Uncle Dave Macon Days. Nashville, only 30 miles away, offers renowned attractions like the Grand Ole Opry and the Country Music Hall of Fame as well as three pro sports teams and the Nashville Super Speedway.
