I feel like Corinth is a very small town. I’m not originally from here, and I’m actually from what I thought was a small town, but after coming here, I realize that I am now in a very small town. There are very few activities for kids to do. There are plenty of different schools to choose from, and we have experienced the city school as well as one of the county schools. I prefer the county school as the city schools seem to be over-crowded, with high numbers of students per classroom. Also there is not much of in the way of restaurants. There’s not much of a nightlife scene either. On the plus side, there doesn’t appear to be much major crime here. Sure it has the small, petty crimes (stolen bicycles, lawnmowers, air conditioning units), but it’s mostly quiet.

Great, little town! Schools are wonderful. Great area for families and retirees. The downtown district has lots of lovely little shop and dining options.
I've lived my entire life in Corinth Mississippi, and my entire experience has been what one would expect to have in the middle of the south. It's a tourist town with nothing to do besides participating in juvenile festivities and watching movies at the local cinema. While the nature aspect is beautiful and relaxing, it is destroyed by liter and garbage. The stereotype of southern courtesy and kindness is not exactly the truth. The town is a retirement home, filled with an abundance of elderly prudes. I always wished, even as a child, to run far away from here.
