    Oxford, the cultural capital of the South

    Home to William Faulkner and John Grisham, along with the World Championship Old-Time Piano Playing Contest and the Oxford Film Festival, Oxford is more than just a lively university town—it’s one of the cultural hotspots of the South. If you’re planning on getting away to explore this one-of-a-kind hamlet, then book an Oxford vacation rental, roll down the car windows, and turn up the blues—a trip to Oxford promises an unforgettable historical adventure in The Magnolia State.

    Food, football, and Faulkner: what to do in Oxford

    Oxford is gracious Southern charm at its best: leafy boulevards, rollicking music clubs, and some of the most memorable food in the country. Restaurants run the gamut from greasy spoons to European-inspired bistros, and you’ll want to try the crawfish hush puppies and chicken-on-a-stick—a local specialty. Faulkner’s house at Rowan Oak is a must-see, while the elegant town square is a great place to kick back with a mint julep. If you’re visiting in-season, book an Oxford vacation rental near Vaught-Hemingway Stadium and root on the Rebels at an Ole Miss football game.

    Hotty Toddy, Gosh almighty! and other Oxford attractions

    The Oxford Courthouse offers a frozen-in-time example of the antebellum days—Grisham’s honey-tongued lawyers would be right at home—and The Square’s stylish bars draw lawyers, writers and night owls. Shoppers will find eclectic souvenirs at the Depot Antique Mall, while The Grove has been called “the Holy Grail of tailgating sites”. If you plan on checking it out on game day, wear your Sunday best; tradition calls for bow ties or cocktail dresses, as well as a rousing sing-along of “Hotty Toddy”.

    A real frogwash: through the seasons in Oxford

    Summers in Oxford are hot and humid—there’s a reason why the seersucker suit became de rigueur, and why Faulkner wrote about air being “breathless”—but the locals scoff at the heat, and they have a point: there’s something eminently enticing about the long July afternoons. Your Oxford vacation rental is likely to have air-conditioning, but you might prefer cooling down with a jug of sweet tea. Winters are fickle and range from mild to chilly, with January seeing average lows in the 40s. Springs are pleasant, full of abundant greenery, while fall brings burnished palettes to the trees along Bailey’s Woods Trail.

    Red-clay hills and 8 highways: putting Oxford on the map

    Getting into Oxford isn’t an issue, as it’s accessed by 8 highways, and its location in Mississippi’s North Central Hills region provides memorable scenery. The streets are on a grid system, and many are named for presidents: the Visitors Center is on Jackson Ave. East. If you’re looking for an Oxford vacation rental that’s close to the restaurants, shops and bars, then The Square is a good fit, but if you’re planning on visiting on game day, book early, as accommodation fills up fast.
