This makes it a good choice for other relocating single professionals. Here, these young singles will find many others like themselves, with opportunities for friendships, socializing, romance, and fun." I think this particular quote from your source is especially relevant to the poster's question, since he fits that description. Thanks for the info!!
Jackson Mississippi is on the most dangerous end of U.S. cities. It has one of the worst economies, in the state with the worst economy and comes in last in most every metric.

But we get it, you and a few other people really like it. Except for the low cost of living brought on by the dismal economy and lack of educated workforce, I can't think of a single reason to move here f you do not have to, when there are hundred of better options.

As mentioned about; "Negative people will be negative." Perhaps, but smart people will never put their objectivity aside, their lives can depend upon it.

You might find the following links informative about Belhaven/Fondren:

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/06/02/tr...miss.html?_r=0. NYT Travel segment in Jackson. Virtually all of these spots are within one mile of Belhaven, with some in Fondren.

In 2014, the American Planning Association ranked the Belhaven neighborhood in the top fifty great American neighborhoods. Greater Belhaven among America's 'Great Neighborhoods'.

And this is a good source for Fondren Find It In Fondren.

As for your interest in walkability to the groc. store, restaurants, etc., that is available in Belhaven/Fondren. It is virtually nonexistent in the suburbs.

I hope you find this helpful.
