I am a native Mississippian and have lived here all of my 32 yrs. I am originally from McComb, in southwest MS and raised in Jackson. I am familiar with central, south and coastal MS, but not northern and northeastern MS. I have never been to the Delta and the only time I've been north is when I travel to Memphis. What is it like? I read the posts on here alot and I notice many people recommend northeastern MS (especially the Tupelo area) to readers. What sets northern MS apart from the rest of the state? Why is so special to you? Maybe one day I will come up for a visit.

North Mississippi is a land of magic and mystery, where dreams come true and Santa Clause visits year-round. It is a natural wonder, filled with floating castles, gingerbread houses, and colorful dragons that roam the countryside... not the mean fire breathing ones, but gleeful, friendly ones.

Ok, sorry, just an attempt at humor to get this thread started.

North Mississippi has some nice places such as Oxford and Tupelo, with more progressive leadership compared to many places in the state, as well as more gritty places such as Clarksdale and Tunica, all rich in history.

North Mississippi is known for its musical heritage, from the delta blues to Elvis Presley. It is also know for its literary influence from authors such as William Faulkner and John Grisham. And BBQ.

It has flat delta, rolling hills, and an abundance of lakes for fishing and water activities.

I don't know if it's any more special than the rest of the state, just different, which can be good. I would say each section of the state has its own culture and feel.
