Grand Bay Reviews

This is a wonderful community to live in. Despite being 15 minutes away from Mobile or Pascagoula, I welcome the distance as the cities/bigger towns are getting worse regarding traffic and crime. Retiring, starting a family, whatever life path you are on, Grand Bay is a place you should consider!

Grand Bay is a medium-sized, quiet town that is a half and hour drive from Mobile. While we are practically always under contant hurrican and flash flood warnings during the summer, the town is still warm and friendly - filled with people ready to help you.
Small town with charm
People look out for one another and it is quiet with farm animals and fun. There is a lot of farm land that provides people an opportunity to get a USDA Loan for house. It is a good community to raise a family.
