We have a small, free online magazine called The New Southern View Ezine where we explore our native state of Mississippi. Perhaps in our publication you'll find a reason or so to pay Mississippi a visit.

Our US Army Corps of Engineers Lakes - Arkabutla, Enid, Grenada, and Sardis: These are flood control lakes that are home to the finest crappie (white perch) fishing in the world. (Ross Barnett Lake is a Corps lake, but it is really shallow and not quite as big as the others)
Ole Miss Football - If you are a college football fan, Ole Miss and The Grove are a must-do. The Grove regularly receives national media attention as one of the top tailgating spots in the country.
MS Gulf Coast has mostly rebuilt since Hurricane Katrina, unlike over in New Orleans. Polar opposite cultures are just 80 miles apart. MS Coasties (and beyond) are friendly, helpful, and great food is everywhere.
