There’s no denying it: there are plenty of places in Mississippi that are downright beautiful and full of excitement.

Unfortunately, not all towns and cities in MS are so lucky.

Just like in all U.S. States, there are definitely some boring places within Mississippi’s borders. You know the places: the ones where everyone has an AARP card and the most exciting thing they do all day is post a picture of their grandchild on Facebook.

Like Quitman, for instance. In our latest analysis, we found that this city was the most boring city in all of Mississippi. But don’t feel bad if you’re a resident of Quitman. There are plenty of other boring, lackluster places in Mississippi as well.

Here they are. Try not to jump out of your seat with excitement:

  1. Quitman
  2. Union
  3. Mendenhall
  4. Iuka
  5. Baldwyn
  6. Hernando
  7. Diamondhead
  8. Collins
  9. Bay Springs
  10. Pass Christian

Before you get all upset if your city’s name is on the list, rest assured that we didn’t use personal opinion when it comes to what classifies a city or town as “boring” or “exciting”. We crunched actual numbers to figure out which towns are statistically more boring.

How we determined the boring cities in the Magnolia State

To figure out how boring a place is, we rely on a complex algorithm that factors in things we generally think make people exciting, and then we figure out which cities have the least number of those exciting people. Here are some of the things people tend to think of as making a city’s population boring:

  • % of Population Over 35 (higher is more boring)
  • % of Married Household (higher is more boring)
  • Average Age (higher is more boring)
  • % of Households With Kids (higher is more boring)
  • % of Households with People Over 65 (higher is more boring)
  • Population density (lower is more boring)
  These Are The 10 Most Liberal Cities In Mississippi

Then, our algorithm generates several lists of the cities that have plenty of residents with high rankings in all of these categories. After a crunching of the numbers, a list of all of the cities magically appears listing them from most boring to most exciting.

For this list, we used every Mississippi city that qualified for our rankings based on having a population of at least 2,000 residents. This keeps us from prejudicing our rankings by including very small pockets of retired people.

Grab your rocker and hold on.

Now That You’re Asleep

On a list like this, there are usually no winners, but since Mississippi isn’t necessarily the most boring state in the United States (barely), the cities on this list can at least take solace that there are, in fact, more boring cities in the country.

Just not these places.

One thought on “These Are The 10 Most Boring Places In Mississippi

  1. The variables you used to come up with this is absolutely flawed. If I were going to publish information saying a town is boring, I would visit the town. Population , marriages and kids doesn’t tell you what is boring. Shopping, entertainment , activities , beauty of the town, and community living and working together makes my town of Baldwyn an unbelievable place to live and visit. I am originally from Bay Springs and it is also a great little town.
