I love living in Oxford, Mississippi. I am a native and although I moved off several times I always come back to my roots. The city is easy to learn because you can get anywhere from Jackson Avenue, University Avenue, North and South Lamar. We have shuttle buses and taxi services if you don't want to drive. The weather is great and Sardis, Enid, and Grenada lake are all close enough to enjoy.
We have a very diverse population because we are home to The University Of Mississippi. The Grove is where everybody hangs out to tailgate during football games and trust me we love our SEC football here!
The Square is home to the beautiful old courthouse and plenty of good restaurants. William Faulkner sits on the bench by City Hall people watching. We have so many great local places to eat like Ajax Diner, Neon Pig, and City Grocery. I don't know of any type of cuisine that's not available.

Oxford, MSIs it possible to buy a small decent home for around $100K in Oxford? Ideally I would be close to University of Mississippi for baseball and football. I've lived in the West for over 30 years and all areas of the country except the South. Originally from St. Louis, MO - I'm considering relocating from Montana, but a little concerned about bugs and humidity.
