Mississippi is a heavily forested delta state in the Southern region of the United States.

Mississippi has a humid subtropical climate with long summers and short, mild winters. Thunderstorms are common year round.
When you move to Mississippi, you are moving to a state full of history. Before the Civil War, Mississippi was the fifth-wealthiest state in the nation with a plantation economy, focused on the production of agricultural cotton that thrived on the region’s rich soil, partly made up of silt which had been regularly deposited by the flood waters of the Mississippi River. In the 1990’s, the decision to legalize casino gambling along the Mississippi River and the Gulf Coast has led to increased revenues and economic gains for the state. In 2012, Mississippi had the sixth largest gambling revenue of any state, with $2.25 billion.
