Miss has the beautiful Natchez Trace Parkway https://www.nps.gov/natr/index.htm, 3 great large public universities and campuses, Stennis Space Center, and cool beach towns like Bay St Louis, mild winters, and low cost of living.

Plus companies don't want to move there because number #1 look at their laws which discriminate certain people and number #2 look at their flag!

It's close between NC and Florida, but I'll go with NC because it has the mountains and the coast.

We don't get no love at all. I'm going to claim my birthplace if they ask me where I'm from.
