These 12 Counties Have The Healthiest People In All Of Mississippi

Let’s face it, Mississippi isn’t exactly known for being among the nation’s healthiest states. In fact, it’s the opposite. The Magnolia State has consistently come in last place in studies like this one by America’s Health Rankings. However, we decided to focus on the positive and, with the help of County Health Rankings & Roadmaps, put together this list of the healthiest counties in Mississippi. For County Health Rankings & Roadmaps’ complete report, (which considered things such as length of life, quality of life, health behaviors, clinical care, social and economic factors, and physical environment), click here.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
