Due to its proximity to Jackson and Milan, Medina is one of the fastest growing towns in West Tennessee. Medina's historic roots are strong downtown, as the sprawling country side is being developed by high-quality builders. With a wedding chapel and wedding parlor (both housed in restored vintage buildings) and several churches, Medina is fast becoming the "wedding capital" of Gibson County.
Medina is the home of West Tennessee's famous "Haunted Farm," a Halloween activity sponsored by the local Lions Club. Medina also celebrates the 4th of July with many activities, and Christmas with a parade.
