Take a road trip outside of Oxford, down curvy roads or fields, and the journey might lead you to a small, Mississippi town called Waynesboro in Wayne County, population 4,903.
To some, the small town of New Albany may just be a sign you pass on the highway. But if you pull off the road and visit the town, you may be pleasantly surprised by its charming historic downtown.
“The Rainey,” New Albany’s best fine dining restaurant, is located there. The town may be small with a population just shy of 9,000, but it is filled with fun people who enjoy a night out for yummy food and drinks.
When Harvey’s restaurant in Tupelo was closed during the summer for five weeks beginning in July for remodeling, some Harvey’s loyal customers were not happy. Linda Edge, who has been eating at Harvey’s for more than 20 years, was disappointed to hear they would be closed for more than a month.
Centrally located between Tupelo and Corinth in the northeast corner of Mississippi, the quiet town of Booneville boasts a population of just under 9,000 residents. The Prentiss County seat appears to many as a pass-by town with little going on, but Market 105 aims to change that in the near future.
Often lost in the Bouré vs. Ajax debate for Oxford-dining supremacy is the subtle, but acclaimed Neon Pig. This little establishment has roots that run farther and wider than the 662 area code; the tastes and smells of Neon Pig have emanated down Highway 6 and throughout America’s heartland.
