Pearl is a Family Oriented Community, where several people in the surrounding cities are interested in moving. The schools in Pearl are 6A with a great reputation for sports and academics. The neighbors believe in cleaning up their homes which includes their yards as well as picking up after your pets. Pearl is great not only for living but for shopping at our newly Outlet Mall and for eating in the various places. Not too mention all the family fun skating, movies, jumping palace and Braves stadium.

I love how Pearl is safe, and there's hardly any crime here. For the past years that I've lived here Pearl has been great, and I haven't had anyone that I didn't know come up to me or threatened me while I have been living here. Pearl is one of the number one safest places to stay in MS. However, I dislike how the Pearl Policemen are always out and looking for people to give tickets too. This to me just shows how desperate the policemen are in Pearl are about giving tickets. I'm not saying they shouldn't be out at all, but all I'm saying is they shouldn't be out all the time. This is also the number one reason why people hate to visit Pearl. In the end no one wants to pay a high priced ticket.
I love the small town atmosphere of Pearl. Most people are courteous and willing to help others. Pearl also has many accommodations including an outlet mall, many great restaurants, family activities, and etc. the one thing I would like to change in Pearl is the road conditions. Overall Pearl is a great place to live.
