Lucedale, MS is a small town with great people! The residents of Lucedale are all so hospitable. Teachers and other school district staff are so caring and helpful! Lucedale is a great place to raise a family. One thing I'd like to see more of is more things to do, such as a bowling alley, laser tag, etc.

It is a small town where everybody knows everyone. Good town for a family and raising small children. Lucedale overall has a good school district with great schools. It has a great football, baseball, and softball program for your athletic children. The business owner are okay for the most part. It is great to bank there because you develop a relationship with them. It is not very exciting and there is not much to do in Lucedale so you would have to drive about forty- five minutes to an hour to enjoy entertainment. The city is usually quiet and safe.
I have learned to love my hometown; however growing up in Lucedale there were a lot of areas for growth. In the past few years it has grown and expanded, but there is still a lot of ignorance and rednecks. I feel like the education in Lucedale has a lot of quality teachers, but is not prioritized. There also isn't a lot of activities for children and youth to keep them mentally and physically active. All in all, it is a small town and while I like that, there is also a lot of ways in which we are behind because of this.
