Moss Point, Mississippi is a family friendly environment where people feel at home and safe. There are not too many people, but it feels as if everyone knows each other and gets along. There are plenty of rivers and outstanding school districts. One thing I would change about Moss Point would be the amount of places it has. There are very few places to go to eat or just hang out. In order to go to the movies or go shopping, one must go to Mobile, Diberville, or Biloxi which is not a short drive. I love it here, but that would he the one thing I would change about Moss Point.

The community shared a strong bond, and the nearby coastline cities are gorgeous. Although improvements could be made regarding structural appearance in Moss Point, everything else seems to be fine.
It's a relatively quiet town, in my view. While that isn't to say that nothing at all happens here, it's generally a place many go to retire and relax, so if that's what you're looking for it's a good place for you. For those looking for something extra, I'd consider someplace else.
