I love living in Bay St. Louis. It is my home and a place I am proud to raise my children. People are friendly and caring. It has a small town feel. Businesses are growing. Above all else I love living just a few minutes from the beach. It is amazing to take a leisurely drive down the beach and take in all the sights that God granted us with.
Review Bay St. Louis
I like the historical setting of The Old Town Bay st. Louis Downtown. What needs Improvement is more attractions and and productive family entertainment.
This place I call home is where I am happy. Everyone here is so kind and loving. It is so small that you know everyone. There is just no place I would rather be.
