If you have kids and prefer a small town, Oxford is a nice place to raise a family. Also, New Albany is a very nice small town to raise a family. Plus, in New Albany, you can easily run down to Tupelo and do all your shopping. New Albany doesn't have a university like Oxford but that could be a positive....just depends on the person. New Albany is probably cheaper than Oxford and Tupelo too.

Tupelo is a really nice town, growing! Hattiesburg is on the growth fast due to being a college town. All in all, most of the ones you have mentioned are going to be great!

I went to college at Southern Miss and decided to reside in Hattiesburg until something takes me away. Hattiesburg is great because of the resources located in the city and its location in relation to other important places in Mississippi/Alabama/Louisiana. Hattiesburg is about 1 hour, 45 minutes from New Orleans....1 hour, 30 minutes from Jackson.... 1 hour, 30 minutes from Meridian....1 hour, 15 minutes from Mobile, AL....1 hour from Gulfport/Biloxi area.....1 hour, 20 minutes from McComb. Hattiesburg has everything you could ever want and/or need for shopping, dining, bars, entertainment, schools, etc. I'm sure any of the more developed cities in Mississippi are great, but I do enjoy Hattiesburg. There's a good mix of historical, urban, and antebellum scenery...and the western part of the city is loaded with shopping centers and whatnot. The university is also very active here and offers many events and activities throughout the year. Southern Miss has somewhat developed a pretty solid reputation as a center of arts and music, which has rubbed off to the city...which you wouldn't find so much in the other college towns besides Jackson.

Great info! I'm moving to Hattiesburg in the fall (after short stay in Smith County), can't wait to check everything out. I'm hoping to find some adult soccer leagues but so far, I haven't heard of any.

There are definitely some adult soccer leagues.

Go out to Tatum Park on the weekends and you'll see people playing pickup games, kids' leagues, adult leagues, softball.

I am a bit biased but Oxford is hard to beat, probably my favorite place I have ever been too, it is truly the ideal college town. The coast is great too, enjoy!

I'm from the Hattiesburg area originally (now in Dallas, TX), but I like Biloxi the best of all cities in the state.
