If there is one thing that I can say about Byram, it would be this: it is a small town with a close-knit community. I moved to Byram at the age of seven. Since then, I have watched the community around me grow and prosper. I have seen the infrastructure improve and watched as new businesses came and job opportunities increase. However, the family-run businesses already established here still thrived. Byram prides itself in safety, which is shown through the low number of reported crimes annually. There is no such thing as a stranger in Byram. Everyone greets each other with a smile and polite remarks. I have enjoyed my living experience in Byram, and I am excited to see what the future has in store for my town.

Byram is well diversed, has friendly people, nice community. Byram should have more restaurants, such as iChiban, Logan's and other places like Cane's, Five Guys, that way civilians won't have to take a 15-20 minute drive just get what they want. My neighborhoods/subdivisions, because there seems to be a lot more people in Byram, than what individuals really expect. The city is steadily growing day by day with more people wanting to move here. Safety here is good, Byram PD usually patrol around the neighborhoods, you always see them, which is a good thing. I've always felt pretty safe ever since I moved here.
Like most towns or places in MS, I wish there was more to do. It’s quiet here though and we’re finally getting a Chick-fil a. Traffic is HORRENDOUS when everyone is heading home, but it eventually calms down after 6:30 p.m. If you’re like me, you don’t do any of your shopping or going out until after then. I wish the parks were a little more built but at least there are parks. It’s not that far from the country (Raymond) which if you like that type of scenery, driving through could really clear your head.
