We might be temporarily relocated to this area for about a year due to my husband's job. We have two small children and will be far from family and friends.

What is the area like? It looks like it is in the general area of Tupelo. What family and children's activities are there? What shopping, restaurants, etc are there? Are there good parks, schools, and libraries?

Are there rental homes available?

What is the general "vibe" of the area? What are your favorite and least favorite areas? Any areas we should focus on as a young family?

We're looking forward to learning more about it!

Not from there, but I know Tupelo is a nice area. There is an arena there, so you do get various forms of entertainment come through town. Also, you will be pretty close to Starkville (Mississippi State University) and Oxford (Ole Miss), so that might be fun if you are into college athletics or events that go on in college towns.

Looks like these websites might have some of the info you are looking for, I'm sure someone will come along with more detailed info in general and also on the rental situation:

Tupelo, MS - Elvis' birthplace features hotels, restaurants, shopping, parks & more family attractions
