Review of Biloxi, Mississippi

Great Place to Live!
Star Rating - 5/30/2011
My husband is in the military and we recently moved to Biloxi/Gulfport area from southern California. We've been here only a short time, but I can tell you this: in comparison to California, I would suffer through the humidity and hurricanes just to maintain the quality of life that seems to be ever present here. The people are amazingly friendly and helpful, I actually know my neighbors (what a concept), Cost of living is awesome (we live off the water in a 2b/2ba for $700/m), crime is lower than average there is always something to do. I love the endless recreational options and the many different major destinations within vacation driving distance. So far, I'm quite happy here and do not fear the hurricane threat. I'm used to living on the San Andreas fault where a major earthquake could destroy my even state instantly, without warning, and within less than a minutes time. Here, you have days and sometimes weeks to plan ahead before a major storm hits and the only way I see it as a threat to me and my family is if i ignorantly ignore evacuation warnings which would be my own mistake anyways.

Hello, my husband is military too and we are moving to Biloxi. I was wondering if you could give me any advice on where to live and places to avoid. We have two little ones so a family oriented place with parks and playgrounds nearby would be great. We would like to keep comutting short if possible. Thanks ahead of time :)
