Livability Oxford-Lafayette County, Mississippi
Oxford is known as the “Cultural Mecca of the South” and this charming, creative community is a top draw for young talent. A big part of its identity is the University of Mississippi (Go Rebels!), or Ole Miss, as many call it. But that’s not all it has to offer. The arts come to life in this community at venues like the Gertrude C. Ford Center for the Performing Arts or The Lyric Oxford. And, of course, we have to mention the food. The region offers everything from upscale cuisine to down-home favorites, like catfish cakes and country ham.
