      I believe that there are better places to live. This place has great amenities such as grocery stores, shopping areas, and parks. That alone is attractive enough to invite anyone to move here. The cost of living is also pretty amazing. When compared to the state of Arkansas and the United States, the reported cost of living in Blytheville is 8 % and 23 % respectively lower than there categorical averages. In addition, housing costs in Blytheville are less than the national average.

      The major downside to living here is crime rates as well as poor schools. The average test scores are 16%, compared to the national average if 49%. Also, there are only seven public schools and two private schools.

      With over 1000 reported incidents, Living here isn't exactly the safest. While there are pros and cons to living in Blytheville, Arkansas; unfortunately the cons (crime, poor education, bad housing, poor employment) outweigh the pros (amenities, cost of living).
