Working in Wiggins
The schools here are average at best, but actually pretty good by Mississippi's standards. It's a safe town; most of the crime you hear about is drug use. Most people here are very conservative and Baptist. Going to church is probably the best way to make friends here if you're not a local. I'm not sure about job opportunity here but many people commute to Hattiesburg or Gulfport. It's not a bad place at all, just don't expect any entertainment besides Flint Creek, hunting or driving around.
Wiggins is a very small town. It has a lot of outdoor activities and delicious hometown restaurants. There is a close sense of community and belonging in Wiggins. Everyone knows each other and we love to meet new people because we are southern. The town is full of helpful and caring people. Flint Creek Water Park is a very popular attraction for our town and it offers camping, swimming, and boating as entertainment. We also have a large snow cone stand that is growing in popularity among the coast and it has won awards. It is called Snow Boogers. (yes I know, weird name) It offers a wide selection of flavors and some of the combinations you haven't even thought of before.
A smallish, rural city. Has its fair share of drug problems, but as long as you know which areas to avoid on a regular basis, it's a nice place to live. It's just in the middle of Hattiesburg and Gulf Port as well, giving you a decent range of jobs and other things within an hours drive.
