I'm a single mother of four and I am thinking of relocating to Mississippi. I have plenty of family and friends there but I can't decide on the city to move too. Most of my family and friends live near Tupelo, Columbus and some other smaller towns. I am from Saint Louis,Mo and my main concern is finding a nice neighborhood for my children and a great school district. If anyone have any good suggestions please comment. Thank you!

Check out Hernando, Oxford, Corinth, Booneville and Tupelo and Columbus, all with very nice neighborhoods and schools in North Mississippi.

In central MS, I would recommend Madison or Brandon and in South MS Hattiesburg, Ocean Springs, Long Beach or Pass Christian.

Hello and thank you all for the info. My children are ages 14,13,6 and 7. I am thinking about renting as of now trying to just get a feel for things first. I am currently a CNA( certified nursing assistant) so I will be transferring my certification also. Also I have decided to relocated to Tupelo.

Tupelo may be a little expensive for someone on a CNA salary. Just south of there is Verona, a small town which may have cheaper real estate and is not far from the hospital, if that is where you are planning to work. God bless.
