Description - This region is filled with rolling hills and covered with hardwoods and pines. The Pines Region spans country stores, sacred Native American homelands and historic towns.

Attractions - This region is home to a portion of the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway system, which offers numerous lakes, rivers and reservoirs, locks and dams that are teeming with bass, crappie, catfish and panfish. The Natchez Trace Parkway leads through this region. The region also encompasses the Bienville and Tombigbee National Forests, Clarkco State Park, Golden Memorial State Park, Lake Lowndes State Park, Legion State Park, Nanih State Park, Roosevelt State Park, and Sam Dale State Park.

Recreation - Rivers flowing through the Pines Region are teeming with largemouth bass. The Leaf, Chunky, Pearl and Strong Rivers are some of these rivers. Other popular recreation in the area includes boating, water skiing, camping, picnicking, hiking and viewing historic sites.

Climate - Mississippi lies mainly in the subtropics. The climate is mild with the coldest months experiencing low temperatures near 40 degrees F. Summer temperatures frequently reach 100 degrees F, with coastal breezes providing cooling relief. Humidity is highest in August and September reaching an average close to 90%. The highest rainfall comes during the spring months, but December and January are wet, too. Expect temperatures in the northeastern hills region to be somewhat cooler than the rest of the state.

Location - The Pines Region encompasses the east-central portion of Mississippi, with the Alabama border forming its eastern boundary. It encompasses the areas surrounding the cities of Meridian and Columbus, west to Winona and Forest.
