Ok, I've learned the cheap areas are no good. So what is the best city out of these?

Oxford, tupelo, vicksburg, Jackson, Hattiesburg, Gulfport/Biloxi?

I hear oxford is beautiful, Jackson has the best economy, gulfport/biloxi have beaches... dont know much about Hattiesburg. I'm going to try & visit two of these towns early in the fall... which two are best?

The entire state is probably about the same in cost. There are many nice towns; what do you have in mind besides being cheap?

In general, Desoto County (a Memphis suburb), Madison and Rankin Counties (Jackson suburbs), and the Gulf Coast will be more expensive than other parts of Mississippi. College towns (Oxford, Starkville, Hattiesburg, Cleveland) will be more expensive than towns without a college. With the exception of Cleveland, real estate in the Delta is close to dirt cheap.

Ocean Springs looks like my kind of town. Peaceful, non-violent and very family orientated.
