Paragould is a city that rose at the junction of two railway systems. It's only 88 miles from Memphis, and homes for rent in the area are perfect for those who want big-city comfort mixed with classic Southern culture.
The city has several attractions that pay homage to its Southern heritage. Twice a month it has the KASU's Blue and Bluegrass Monday Concert Series to celebrate the "music of the Delta." For more music, the Delta Symphony performs several times a year in neighboring Jonesboro at the Arkansas State University Fowler Center. Renters interested in the great outdoors can spend some time exploring Crowley's Ridge State Park in the city. The Collins Theater has pageants, music, movies and theater for renters who enjoy the arts.
