I have lived in Mississippi a great portion of my life. I have also lived in Baton Rouge and Chicago. The good things about Mississippi are that we have wonderful people and places to see. We have beautiful parks, beaches, museums, history recreations, mild winters, and most of all people who care. There are so many things that I could say, but this will hopefully entice you to give us a try down here.

I definitely plan to visit Mississippi someday.

Default Let find out about Ms

Hi, I am moving to Ms soon...compared to some other places, I can't wait to get away from here. WELL, so much for that...I will tell you one thing for sure, and that is the land is cheaper. I will tell you more as time goes by.
but don't believe everything until you've actually experienced it for yourself.

The Economy has hit the Gulf coast pretty hard.. Casinos having major layoffs, so times are tough for the area.

I think more & more businesses will relocate to Mississippi in coming years for the same reason businesses are going to Texas & Oklahoma. Nice weather, good people, lack of union history, & friendly to business. The South is the place to be. Arkansas has a ton of businesses moving in.

When we first thought about the move, and I told some friend/colleagues about it, you should have seen their faces! THey thought I was nuts! But in all honesty, we were nervous about coming here! We read alot of bad things, plus the general reputation of the state...but we made some contacts with some area folks and decided to make the move, figuring that if it was bad enough we could start looking again. WOW, were we surprised, we LOVE it here, we go walking in our neighborhood on the weekends, and see all the local kids playing basketball or football in someones driveway or yard, the friendliness, it takes my wife and I back to a time when we were kids, because those are things we had not seen since our childhood! Yes, we see the bigotry, the poverty, the lack of self-respect, the folks who do their jobs half heartedly, and while I might say that it is greater here than other places I have been, it does not detract from the good of everything else. Besides, as time goes on I hope that those problems will get better.

But I must also say that it seems to stem from MS folks themselves, a lot don't see the beauty of their state, probably from never having left it, or exploring the world. I think I get more "Why would you move to MS?" questions from locals now that I am here than when I was planning on moving and was talking with my friends that weren't from MS. Also, we are contantly bombarded with "Are you still liking it" questions. That line of questioning keep making me wonder if we are headed for a big disappointment, and the one thing that keeps me just a bit nervous about being here are that line of quesitoning from the locals! Have a good one eveyone!

Mississippi was pretty state and I really do think so since I have lived in Texas.
However, I like Texas a lot, especially Austin. It is the city that many people/races/cultures are inter-mingled well and safe place!
When I visited Jackson for a few months, I felt this city had quite different circumstances as Austin, TX. It seems people are less mingled than other big cities.
This does not mean I don't like Mississippi...I want to feel southern hospitality and want to see more people/races/cultures are actively interacted next time.

anyway, they have very pretty driving roads and trailers....I don't think weather is that bad..at least better than Texas. Every time I see Mississippi ranks low, I feel sad.
I think it can be better....Texas is doing good, why can't Mississippi?



Let's go Miss!

I am 22 years old and moved to Biloxi when I was 8 from Buffalo, NY. I dont' regret the change by my parents at all. I loved growing up down here. It has great southern charm, everybody is nice (of course you have your exceptions) and a little bit of something to do for everyone. Even though our beaches are not quite like florida or anyone, I kind of like it that way..we're different and don't attract as much traffic as Destin and Pensacola. I think within the next few years we will definatly see the shape of the Gulf Coast change. I actually joined this site recently because I'm planning a move to Durham, NC with my company because I am graduting from USM in about 3 weeks. I'm definately going to miss some things about Mississippi but look foward to the change. Who knows mabye I'll end up back here one day.

I think Durham is a great place to live. I went there on vacation a couple summers ago, and it was great! What I really liked about Durham is that there are some very quiet residential areas that are just minutes away from malls, etc. The Raleigh-Durham area is also a great place to find a job.
