You know what’s great about Mississippi?

Lots of stuff!

This summer was the first time Mike and I had ever been to Mississippi and it marked the furthest east we had driven on I-10. (Yes I know that doesn’t sound too impressive, but we didn’t have a car until August, so give us a break, eh?) We’ve been back a few more times since.

So here is my very short, not-at-all-researched list of things in Mississippi that are totally HOT and totally NOT.
