South Mississippi is an amazing place to live. We have beautiful beaches, plenty of sun and nice weather pretty much all year (if you exclude hurricane season).
However, we are lacking diverse entertainment options. Coastal residents will tell you that we have more casinos than we know what to do with and, in that vein, plenty of adult entertainment. I disagree. I'm not a gambler and the live entertainment offerings are sporadic from the casinos. It is an amazing boost for our local economy (which I greatly appreciate), but the enjoyment value is lost to me.
I tend to head to New Orleans, South Mississippi's gritty neighbor, for certain events and retro-inspired entertainment, namely burlesque shows.
