Biloxi is a wonderful place to live. After growing up there for 18 years, you learn to know and love the many places that the city offers you. There are lots of local restaurants and shops that have so much history and authenticity that give the city its unforgettable atmosphere. If you love the fishing or going to a nearby beach to relax, Biloxi is the place to be. With the vast seafood history located in this city, you can learn a lot from locals and museums about the history of how that city became such a huge seafood capital and how the city thrived off of the fresh seafood caught in its waters. The beaches do not compare to Florida or California beaches with their blue waters and immense beach goers, but it is a nice place to take a walk along on a relaxing day. There are also neighboring cities that offer more modern options and franchises that are close by. You could drive 30 minutes to enter another historic city such as Ocean Springs or Gulfport if you are seeking a change.

I have loved on the MS Gulf Coast for 30 years. I've moved around allot, but always end up back "home". Biloxi.. the entire Coastal area (hwy 90, beach stretch; Bay St Louis to Ocean Springs has obviously undergone many changes over the years. The casinos came. Then the hurricane hit. And for the past 15 years, our Community has been rebuilding, as well as adding more entertainment and venues, to not only appeal to our tourists, but also our residents. We are truly your "sweet tea, mashed taters, hey y'all, darlin' hunny, sweetheart, bless your heart"] Southern souls. We love to feed people, ourselves included. We love a relaxing day at the creek, beach, river.. or even just a nice fishing hole. We believe in God and we mostly live by the 'Golden Rule'. I've lived here nearly my whole life, and I've gone through all of the ups and downs with my neighbors and our community. We all stick together, and come together in times of hardship. I am proud to be a Mississippi Southern Gal. ♥️
I moved here from Alaska so the change in weather and scenery was welcomed. I am originally from Hawaii so the humidity is bearable. The heavy rain, strong winds, and flooded streets will take some time to get used too; but it does bring down the heat so I do not mind it. I love that the beach is only a 5-10 minute drive, although the water could be a bit more clear. The neighborhood I live in is nice and quiet along with the residents. Traffic has never been overwhelming, which I am most grateful for. One thing I think could be improved is the scarcity of street lights. Some roads are so dark in the evening, it is a bit intimidating to drive through. Some light while coming around a corner or just driving down some of the back roads would help me feel at eases while driving at night. Over all, my time in Biloxi -although short- has been positive. This is a place I could see myself retire.
