If you are married with children, then I am sure that Oxford, MS would be a pleasant place to live.


HOWEVER, if you are a single adult who is out of college, you do not have a prayer for a social life!  There is nothing to do and no place to go.  It is a nice area, but it is so dull!  As for culture, sorry but there is none. Unless drinking and drunk driving is considered a culture.


If you like snooty people, or if you are a dull person who thinks that going WalMart is a social event then Oxford, MS is the place for you.


I am counting the days until I can leave.

Oxford, MS is a great place to raise a family. Schools are good. Crime is low. Housing is very reasonably priced. Traffic is non-existant so commutes are less than 10 minutes. There are plenty of things to do and culture to go around. You won't find another 17,000 person town with all the above qualifications AND decent bands that play. If you get bored with small town life, Memphis is only an hour and a half away and the MS delta (for a REAL blues experience) is closer than that.

I really liked this area better before all the chain stores and franchises moved in.  Also, I love how they never show wintertime photos!  Still, I miss Cambridge.

Moved to Oxford 2 months ago on a whim and it's GREAT!!  Lived in the same town for 30 years, then stopped in Oxford and fell in love with it.  I've traveled in 41 of the 50 states and 11 countries and I really think this is a top spot.

I really wish i could figure out your criteria for best college towns for adults. Having traveled extensively, I could substitute at least 3 colleges as good if not better for each of your choices. I am not a Texas  fan, but give me a break; College Station?
