I have lived in Starkville full-time since August 2018, and there is a lot of options for things to do even when you feel like there is nothing to do. Especially now that corona has affected things, our college year won't be looking the same.
1. Visit Main Street and pop in the shops.
There are a ton of cute stores that deserve love during this time. Grab a couple friends, a mask, and your wallet to go on a socially distant shopping spree. My personal recommendations are Curio, Swanky B, LA Green, Aspen Bay, and Occasions.
2. & while you are there, get some food to eat.
Some good food is located on Main Street which is perfect because you will be hungry after all of your shopping. Whether you want to eat in or get your food to-go, it will be worth it. My personal recommendations are Starkville Cafe, 929 Coffee Bar, or Arepas Coffee and Bar.
It is located a little outside of Starkville city limits, but it is worth the drive. They have any plant you can imagine from indoor to outdoor, cactus to trees, plant pots to plant soil. They have it all. Check out their Facebook here and go give them a visit.
4. Visit a pumpkin patch.
Grab a couple friends or a significant other and go find the perfect pumpkin for you. Most pumpkin patches have other activities you can participate as well. Pumpkin patches are also a great opportunity for a photography session if you are into that.
5. Go to a football game.
I know this may not be a reality for everyone, but Mississippi State is allowing 25% capacity for football games and are offering student tickets. If you can make it to at least one game I recommend it.
