Mississippi

Some people say Mississippi and Louisiana mixed up their names. The first French settlement was in Mississippi, not the state named after the French king. And the mighty Mississippi’s namesake isn’t where she empties into the sea. What does it take to understand a place like Mississippi? The state’s name comes from the Ojibwe word for Great River – ‘misi-ziibi’. It’s known as ‘The Hospitality State’ because of its long tradition of southern hospitality, especially for travelers along the river and the historic Natchez Trace overland route. In Mississippi, you’ll find smiling faces, historical places, natural spaces, and so much more.
