What Bert Has To Say About Gulfport-Biloxi-Pascagoula Metro Area

All three cities lie at the base of the narrow Gulf extension of the state of Mississippi. Biloxi is more commercial, Gulfport is more of a residential beach community, and Pascagoula is more industrial with shipyards, oil refineries and other heavier industries. Much of this coastal area had developed as a second-class beach resort for Southerners and some Midwesterners others looking for an alternative to Florida. Biloxi was also a center for the shrimping and fishing industries and has many good restaurants, activities, and museums related to the seafood trade, and it is likely this role will continue.
