Benefits of Living in Mississippi

Have you had the Magnolia State on your mind lately and wondered whether moving from New York to Mississippi would be right for you? Even if you’re experienced in preparing and packing for a long-distance move, leaving New York for the classic Southern state of Mississippi may take a little additional preparation and information. While both states have numerous advantages to offer their residents, they can also differ in several key ways. Here’s what to keep in mind as you make your plans to say goodbye to New York and head down to Mississippi.

You’ll Get a Lot More

Bang for Your Buck in Mississippi

If you’re looking to move somewhere cheaper than New York, it doesn’t get much better than Mississippi. When it comes to cost of living, New York and Mississippi are nearly polar opposites in the rankings. While New York is frequently ranked as one of the most expensive U.S. states, Mississippi is often ranked as the cheapest. This means that a move to Mississippi could ease the burden on your wallet and allow you to enjoy lower prices on groceries, transportation, utilities and more. Additionally, if you hope to purchase property in your new area, you may be excited to learn that the housing market is also, overall, more affordable than anywhere in New York state in general. This means you may be able to purchase a larger house or more land in Mississippi than you might have been able to with the same amount of money in New York.


Warmer, More Humid Weather and Milder Winters

Not a fan of the cold? Mississippi could be the place for you. Unlike New York, which has four seasons with typically cold and often snowy winters, Mississippi generally has mild winters and year-round humidity and pleasant temperatures. The state’s climate may be stickier than New York in the summer, but could provide a reprieve from low temperatures during the winter months. In Mississippi, you can reasonably expect:

  • Little to no snowfall in most of the state
  • Generally higher humidity and warmer year-round temperatures than New York
  • Longer summers and shorter fall and spring seasons
  • Comparable or higher amounts of rainfall

Delight Your Palate With a

Wide Range of Southern Comfort Foods

One of Mississippi’s most unique traits and biggest draws is its culinary heritage. If you enjoy Southern comfort food, there’s perhaps no better place to expand your palate than Mississippi. The entire state boasts a varied and tasty cuisine that often includes local classics such as:

  • Fried catfish
  • Fried shrimp and oysters
  • Cornbread
  • Crawfish
  • Sweet tea
  • Po’ boy sandwiches

History Buffs Will Find

Plenty To Explore

Those who enjoy exploring history and learning about the past are sure to love living in Mississippi. The Magnolia State has countless historical sites, landmarks and memorials on offer, meaning you could easily fill every weekend with a trip to a different local historical spot. If you’re planning on moving with your whole family, you can bring the kids along for a fun and educational trip! If you’re not sure where to get started with Mississippi’s major historical sites, make sure to at least add the following attractions to your must-see shortlist.

  • Vicksburg National Military Park
  • Civil War historical sites
  • Historical houses and plantations
  • The Biloxi Lighthouse
  • The Old Capitol Museum
  • The ‘ghost town’ of Rodney

Expect a More Relaxed,

Easygoing Pace of Life

One major difference between Mississippi and much of New York is the overall pace of life. Although Upstate New York residents typically enjoy a more relaxed lifestyle than those working in or near the New York City metropolitan area, the entire state of Mississippi is likely to enjoy a less hectic lifestyle than New York in general. Mississippi is well known for its laid-back, slow-paced cities and towns that offer residents the opportunity to stop and smell the roses. Mississippians often take advantage of their state’s mild winters and enjoy outdoor activities all year-round. If you move to Mississippi, you may find plenty of fishing, hunting and camping enthusiasts in your new neighborhood.

Mississippi’s Industries Differ From New York's

Although Mississippi’s economy is diversified and consists of varying industries, those industries may not overlap with the ones that tend to make up the bulk of New York’s economy. If you’re starting to plan a move to Mississippi but have not yet found a new job, understanding which sectors tend to be hiring in your new area may be helpful. For instance, while New York encompasses the entertainment business, the financial world and more, Mississippi’s main sectors usually encompass:

  • Architectural services
  • Manufacturing
  • Education and professional training
  • Healthcare
  • Technical services
  • Agriculture

Prepare Yourself for

Old-Fashioned Southern Hospitality

Lastly, one of the biggest cultural differences you may notice right away between New York and Mississippi is the latter’s tradition of good old-fashioned Southern hospitality. Broadly speaking, Southern hospitality refers to a warm and welcoming attitude and approach to others, often complete with pleasant receptions, shared experiences and bonding sessions over traditional foods. There’s no shortage of the hospitality mentality in Mississippi, where you’re likely to find:

  • Soul food
  • World-famous jazz
  • A traditionally hospitable culture
