The land of Southern bells and magnolias. A place where food never lacks soul and mud pies are heavenly. Mississippi is where southern hospitality is a staple of everyday life.
The state sits between the two lowland plains: the Delta in the west and the Gulf Coastal Plain with bays, marshes, and swamps in the east. There are some beautiful beaches along the Gulf coast that often get overlooked. Which is alright though, it keeps the crowds of spring breakers away. The Delta is flat with amazing virgin forest along the Mississippi River. The central part of the state is hilly with Woodall Mountain as its highest point.
The weather in Magnolia state is hot and humid with heavy rains and tropical storms. Summers are long, and winters are short with barely any snow. Mississippi is a small town state where life is simple, slow-moving, and mostly stress-free. The largest city is Jackson, which also happens to be the state’s capital is home to almost 170,000. Forbes once listed Jackson as the third best “Bang For Your Buck” city based on the affordable cost of living versus housing costs. Madison, Ocean Springs, and Clinton ranked high as the best places to raise a family in Mississippi.
The state offers a variety of festivals throughout the year. Mississippians use every excuse to celebrate life: be it food, weather, art, music. If you are an auto enthusiast moving to Magnolia state, you are in luck. Every year thousands of car enthusiasts flock to Mississippi for the “Cruisin’ the Coast” fest, looking to show off their hot rods and classic rides in a 30-mile scenic shoreline drive.
