    Weather at Murray: The weather here is pretty nice. There may be some winters where it is really cold and nasty, but there are also some winters where it is really nice. The summers are pretty warm and you can ensure that you can get a tan outside. The Fall and Spring are gorgeous out here because it's so mild, not to hot, not to cold.

    Food & Drink at Murray: The food and drinks here is really great because it is a little bit of everything. You can eat American, Chinese, Indian, Thai, and any other place you can think of. One of my favorite places to eat is Chili's. I really enjoy their lava molten cakes and their fries. It's a great place because it's fit for everybody's lifestyle.
