I've been living in Brookhaven Mississippi for the last three years and have enjoyed the small town culture and the unique boutiques and shopping experiences that are part of this old school laid back southern cultural town. Brookhaven has decent school systems and my kids love the friendly students that they have grown to develop long-term relationships with. There is very little crime in Brookhaven due to the fact it's a small town and everyone knows pretty much everyone in this city.
The best areas in Brookhaven are around the Exchange Park area where there are nicely situated communities that have lots of amenities not too far away so that it's convenient to live in this area. Brookhaven has all the modern shopping stores such as Walmart and fast-food places to have convenient opportunities for individuals to take advantage of these amenities. However, Brookhaven is known for its small businesses that provide different types of boutique shops and local restaurants that are very high class. If you're looking for a unique place to visit or live in Mississippi Brookhaven would be my choice.
