Winter in Mississippi is a beautiful time of year! It’s an awesome time to get out and enjoy the outdoors, like with an amazing winter hike in Mississippi or something similar. Winter here tends to be short and mild, especially when compared to the long, humid summers we see. It tends to be warmer on the coasts than in the inland areas, and significant snow events are rare (though there have been the occasional historic snowstorms in Mississippi, though). It’s a wonderful time to do something fun like embark upon one of our awesome Christmas towns in MS road trips – after all, the roads shouldn’t even be all that icy.
