What Do You Get When You Cross J. W. Paramore with Jay Gould?
Named for the two railroad tycoons who cut tracks through this part of Arkansas in the 1880s, Paragould is a place with a one-of-a-kind name. There are around 26,000 people who live in the city and another 20,000 or so who live in the surrounding towns, making this officially a micropolitan area. Like cosmopolitan cities that are known for their art scenes and culinary hot spots, Paragould has a thriving art community (with an ample supply of live theater and music) and more than its share of great local eateries. Unlike cosmopolitan cities that tend to lose apartment renters in the crown, passing them off as just another one of the millions, the city embraces newcomers with open arms and small town charm. Renters who move here can enjoy partying with the neighbors at city-wide celebrations, getting down and dirty for a game of baseball with the local sports club, or taking a few enrichment classes at one of the four local colleges. There's no shortage of things to do in the area and no shortage of friendly residents to hang out with.
Finding that Elusive Apartment
With a large student population, competition for rentals in Paragould can be tough. The best time to move into this city is in the summer when many of the students have gone home on break. The rest of the year, it can be hard to find any available units; it is, after all, a micropolitan area (emphasis on the micro).
Small Town, Enormous Art Scene
As the center of its micropolitan area, Paragould is home to a number of cultural events and activities. The Collins Theater, which was known as the Capital Theater when it was built in 1925, is home to live dramatic and musical performances as well as fashion shows, pageants and dance shows throughout the year. The theater is a great place to spend an evening or an afternoon but it relies on the locals to keep it going. So if you've ever thought of getting involved with a local theater (whether on stage or backstage), the Collins Theater would be happy to have your help and talent.
Musicians and music lovers will also be right at home. The Delta Symphony Orchestra gives musicians a chance to perform and give back to the community through music education programs. Renters who prefer more modern music can head downtown every other week for KASU's Blue Monday party: a celebration of blues and bluegrass that will definitely take your mind off your case of the Mondays.
Next Stop, Memphis
Even if there aren’t tons of available apartments, there’s certainly no shortage of things to do in town. There are four colleges in this city, so though the population is small, it is a fun-loving, adventurous population. The city buzzes with activity and the bars stay open late. But if you ever do want a little dose of big city every once in a while, Memphis, Tennessee isn't too far away. There are over a million people in the metropolitan area around this city and enough entertainment for about 10 million. Memphis is home to museums, music venues, theaters, sports arenas, and dozens of great restaurants. This city stays up late as well, so if you're feeling the need to dance the night away, or stay up laughing until your side hurts at a comedy club, this is a great city to find yourself in. After an adventure in Memphis, renters from Paragould can return to their peaceful community and be surrounded by current and future friends.
Taking the Community Outside
There's no need to stay inside your new apartment to have a good time in Paragould. This town may be a little far away from the large wilderness areas of Arkansas, such as the Ozark Mountains, but it is home to a number of small parks. At the parks you can enjoy hiking around and watching for deer, woodpeckers and wildflowers. There are also a number of playgrounds, picnic areas, and sports fields that encourage a little friendly competition among neighbors. The sport fields that is, not the picnic spots. But if you are so inclined, you could probably start up a chili or BBQ cook off at your local park. You will also have access to a large community center for plenty of indoor excitement on rainy days. Newcomers to town should be sure to check with the local parks department when they arrive so they can get involved in the fun and connect with new friends right away.

Is Paragould a family friendly town?
Not if you're looking for a safe place to live. With 77 crimes per 1,000 residents, Paragould's combined rate of violent and property crime is very high compared to other communities of similar population size. Despite the high crime rate, families with school-age children might want to consider Paragould because its schools are very good relative to the rest of Arkansas. The Paragould School District, whose six schools provide public education to 2,800 Paragould students, was rated better than 78.3 percent of school districts in the state and 52.7 percent of school districts in the country.
