Community Information

While Southaven is similar to other Southern cities in that we love our hot weather and any reason to celebrate the barbecue, sports and festivals we love so much, Southaven is still home to many things you can’t find anywhere else.

In Southaven, you’ll find the largest selection of restaurants in North Mississippi. Every summer, more than 1,650 youth baseball teams come to Snowden Grove Park for tournament season, including the Dizzy Dean World Series. At the end of each summer, Southaven plays host to the Mid-South Fair, a weeklong celebration full of shows, games, music, delicious food and fun contests.

Best of all, we’re only a short drive to the entertainment and attractions in Memphis, Tennessee and a 10 minute drive to the Memphis International Airport. Southaven is at the gateway to the Mississippi Delta and the famous Hwy 61 Blues Trail, too. It is the third-largest city in Mississippi and the second most populous suburb of Memphis with many luxury housing options at affordable prices. Southaven is also a center for shopping, including a wide range of boutiques and antiques. Southaven is the perfect place to settle down in the suburbs without giving up all the luxuries of city living.
