We invite you to make Laurel your retirement/relocation destination and enjoy all the delights of Mississippi living. Laurel has the distinction of being one of only 21 CERTIFIED RETIREMENT CITIES in the State of Mississippi. To be a Certified Retirement City, each town must pass a comprehensive three-month screening process conducted by Hometown Mississippi Living, the state’s official retiree attraction program. Laurel was evaluated on a number of factors including, affordable cost of living, low taxes, low crime rate, access to quality medical care, recreation, educational and cultural opportunities, and most important—a warm and welcoming community.

Take a journey you have waited a long time to make. It’s a journey that’s well worth the taking… with plenty of new neighbors to help you feel right at home.
