Young Professionals

If you’re young but aching to live amidst a creative community then look at Midtown. It’s the heart of the arts district and is filled with boutique shops, galleries and music experiences. It also is filled with collaboratives and cafes so even struggling artists can find a way to create, be seen and be heard at venues like The Hub and Soul Wired Cafe. It has plenty of cheap living options in divided homes and apartment buildings for getting your start.
If you're a more white collar professional then check out Downtown. Tons of renovations in the area have made it one of the cooler downtowns in the country with amazing living options in the Hotel King Edwards and Standard Life Buildings. There’s plenty of restaurants, bars and culture amidst the prime office locations so if you’re anxious to have a walkable lifestyle then this is your spot.

Fondren District


Couples and Singles who want to be near or in commercial districts but get some reprieve from downtown type of chaos should look at Belhaven. It’s a historic neighborhood that borders downtown and has its own quieter but excellent restaurants, pubs and cultural options like the Mississippi Museum of Natural Science. It’s also home to Millsaps College and Belhaven University which make the neighborhood feel more like a small college town than a city in the heart of downtown.
