Need to get away? There are plenty of places nearby Oxford you could go on a day trip. A day trip is defined as a place you can travel to where the distance is close enough to get to and from in the same day and still have time to have some fun, see some sights or at least enjoy a good meal. Day trips are typically as far away at 3 hours; 4 if you want to push it. Any farther and most people would simply want to spend the night and return the next day.
From Oxford you can visit the following: Tupelo, Corinth, Westpoint, Starkville, Holly Springs, New Albany, Jackson, Greenville, Sardis, Cleveland, Clarksdale and Tunica in Mississippi and Memphis, Jackson and Shiloh in Tennessee. These towns are highlighted below. Simply click the box and you will be taken to the tourism or convention/visitor’s bureau.
Other day trips can entail following a "trail" of some kind. Mississippi has its BBQ Trail, Antique Trail, the famed Mississippi Blues Trail, Mississippi Historic Marker Trail, and more. Find them below and plan your excursion. Some of these might turn into road trips so be prepared to find a hotel. Enjoy your trip; drive safely. While you’re away, take some photos and post them with #oxfordmslife so we can see where you’ve been.
