As a so called Millennial, I find it just swell here.

Now I'm told I can't leave because I have a child. If I pack up my family and leave, I'm robbing my child's grandparents of their grandchild.
You should look at Birmingham, in spite of decades of corruption and **** poor leadership, Birmingham has revitalized and is doing pretty well (compared to Jackson). There are several good suburbs and there is a lot more to do in the local area than there is in Jackson. Also depending on where you live, you can be within an easy three and half hour drive of grandparents in Jackson.

Jackson is where Birmingham was 20 years ago. It will revitalize itself as well.

Plus, are you aware there's more things to do in a coastal area than swim at the beach? Last time I checked I don't see MS promoting its beaches the way Florida or Alabama does. There are lots of jobs on the coast.
Texas is YUGE, so some parts are very pretty, and some parts are what I'd call unattractive. But the economy is very diverse and excellent. Cost of housing is good. No state income tax, reasonable sales tax, no sales tax on prescriptions or groceries, cost of autos is good, good job opportunities in many cities, big airports. It's a great state.

Millenials were born into a different world than seniors. Their views are different. They are more likely to be tolerant, liberal, like diversity, fine with gays & foreigners. Even the ones in conservative areas are not comfortable in environments that are not accepting of them and their friends. So they naturally are going to move to vibrant economy areas that are welcoming to them and their friends. There is no mystery to it.
