Top Reasons to Live in Gulfport MS

  • Gulfport, Mississippi, is an easy-living city on the Gulf Coast. Given its location, it should not be surprising that one of Gulfport's top industries is tourism. The other top employer is the Naval Construction Battalion Center, which is the location of the Atlantic Fleet Seabees. Naturally, many of the activities in this city are connected to the outdoors, but those who want to stay indoors often gravitate to the local casino. The people who live on the Gulf Coast love it, and the cost of living is low, especially for a beach area. It is not difficult to find a place to rent by looking off the beachfront area, south of Biloxi Bay. Another attractive aspect of Gulfport is that it is so easy to get up and down the coast to places like Mobile, Biloxi, Pass Christian, New Orleans and Pensacola. Retirement communities are springing up because of the climate and low cost of living, so the stable population of 70,000 people is growing.

  • Housing Statistics The housing prices are not as high as would be expected for property so close to the beach. However, the recession and multiple hurricanes have hurt the real estate market. That is good news for home buyers and renters looking for an affordable house for sale or an apartment or condo to rent. Of course, the rental properties right on the beach are higher priced. For example, a condo on Beach Drive may cost as much as $2,700 per month, whereas the same condo a few miles off the beach may rent for $1,500 a month.
  • Enjoying Time on the Gulf Coast Gulfport is a fun place to visit. It is right on the Gulf Coast and easy to reach from interstate 10. One of the newest cultural centers on the coast was built for children - the Lynn Meadow Discovery Center. It is Mississippi's first children's museum and offers interactive educational experiences. Throughout the year there are festivals and concerts in the city, including like the Gulfport Music Festival and the Cruisin' The Coast event, during which over 4,000 classic and restored cars converge. The Institute for Marine Mammal Research allows people to get into the water and interact with dolphins. The Gulf Coast Symphony is located in Gulfport and celebrated its fiftieth anniversary during the 2011-2012 season.
  • School Days on the CoastThe Gulfport School District could be called "Cruisin' The Education Coast" because the elementary, middle schools and high school are either located along the 26 miles of coast or are just a very short distance from the beach. There is surely something quite special about a school day that begins and ends with an ocean scent carried on the perpetual breezes. The school district is very proud of its 2013-2018 Strategic Plan, which is based on the Common Core State Standards. The school district emphasizes parental and community involvement in the education of the children attending the schools.
  • Neighborhoods in Gulfport The general rule of thumb is that the best housing deals in Gulfport are off the beach. The properties with a beach view are either expensive or rundown. The severe weather events over the years have taken a toll on the availability of affordable beachfront housing. However, by getting off the beach it is possible to get the best of both worlds. First, the rent to own houses, homes for sale and apartment rentals are cheaper than beachfront properties. You get more for the money, in other words. However, it is important to pay attention to neighborhoods. The age of the properties and the weather events have created areas that still need renovation.
