Mississippi is an Appalachian state?

quote:

No. 5: Mississippi
Mississippi is the fourth Appalachian state (including Alabama, Virginia and West Virginia) to make the list so far, and we're only halfway through the ranking. Sensing a trend here? The Magnolia State is not just one of the warmest in the U.S., it also has relatively low state and local taxes and a lower-than-average cost of living. Those factors make Mississippi an accommodating place for retirees, even though its crime rate is a little higher than average. It also has only 178 doctors per 100,000 people -- one of the lowest physician-to-resident ratios in the nation, according to the U.S. Census Bureau

Doesn't surprise me. 50k in Mississippi is like 500k in California

In S. Alabama - It's important that you pick the right location

Not Mobile or Prichard under any circumstances - Duh.

Pick Fairhope, Gulf Shores, or Orange Beach

We get a ton of snowbirds here in AZ. So technically many chose to retire here...for part of the year.

LA and TN, the top two and the only drawback is the crime rate. Lets just say don't live in NoLA, Memphis and you will enjoy your golden years.

You can say what you want about the south, but tell me someone who retired and moved north.

Seriously. What a terrible list. Apparently "pretty low, not zero" SIT is preferred. And a high crime rate must also be highly sought after.

I always value the information put out by Yahoo but I don't know if I am buying this list. You cannot convince me that 3 of the states in the top 10 are bottom feeder states. When I retire i will consider Austin, Scottsdale, Asheville NC, and perhaps Hot Springs Village ark

Birmingham proper is a shite hole granted highland ave area and some parts of southside are getting better. Now Over the Mountain is a different world with Mountain Brook, Vestavia Hills, parts of Hoover (preserve and Ross bridge ) Greystone, And shoal creek areas. Actually very nice with a good bit of stuff to do and not far from the beach, Nashville and the mountains . Decent 4 seasons

Tennessee's crime rate is among the worst in the U.S.


If you take out certain areas of west TN, the crime rate becomes lowest in the country.
