Retire in Mississippi!

You're sure to find the kind of lifestyle you're looking for when it comes to Mississippi retirement. The 20 Certified Retirement Cities throughout the state offer variety and options. Choose from quaint little towns or enjoy a more metropolitan area. To qualify as a Certified Retirement City, each town must pass a comprehensive three-month screening process conducted by Hometown Mississippi Retirement, the state's official retiree attraction program.

Each city is evaluated on the things that are important to you – including affordable cost of living, low taxes, low crime rate, quality medical care, recreation, educational and cultural opportunities, and most important – a warm and welcoming community.
