Our Deputy Editor Julie Zeveloff made the journey down to Mobile, Alabama to see if it truly is the third most miserable city in the country.
And in true Southern style, she was welcomed by a group of women in colorful frilly dresses (with matching hats and umbrellas) along with the local media and mayoral hopeful Sandy Stimpson.*
Speaking with local news station WKRG, Julie said, "So far my impression having only been here for 2 minutes is that it's a friendly and loving place."
Watch her arrival below. You can also read more about how Julie got invited to Mobile here.
*Julie will not be covering the mayoral race between Stimpson and Sam Jones, who has been in office since 2005. Instead, she'll be seeing what Mobile has to offer and if it deserves its Gallup rating.
