I have lived in Pascagoula for about 6 years now, compared to the last town I lived in Pascagoula was a bit of a downgrade. The schools are very nice; however, the streets, not so much. Around the parks and small gas stations, you can usually see people loitering and hobos. Towards the back of one of our parks, there is "Tent City" where some people live in the woods. We also have a lot of local stores run by families and people who live in the town. Pascagoula is considered a shipbuilding city because of Ingalls Shipbuilding and Chevron, many people from Pascagoula, Gautier, Moss Point, and Vancleve work there.
Overall, it's an okay place to stay.

Rated on the top 100 communities by MGM and a good place to retire Pascagoula is a great town to live in. I am a student in pascagoula and the buildings are great, the people are great, the school staff is great, the food is great! I used to live in Miami and coming to pascagoula I found out that rent is way less costly. There is people from all over the world in a little town like pascagoula and they are nice people. There is a lot of opportunities, cheap living, family friendly, and lots of jobs.
Pascagoula is one of the best cities to live in. The people in this city are very kind. The ecosystems are a beautiful sight to see. People here take care of our environment. We have trash pick up days at our local beach and we have many other events that go on throughout the year. We have Zonta which is an art festival for creative artisans everywhere in Pascagoula. It takes place in the fall and everyone loves going to it. We also have downtown Christmas and we light the downtown Christmas tree with the whole city. Everyone is lovely and caring about every single person.
