Crime rates are horrible and there is always a shooting, stabbing or etc that happens almost daily. The schools are usually crammed pack and the teachers do not watch for our kids when it comes to bullies. Kids have taken their own lives due to this nonsense.

Things I enjoyed were activities: Casinos, restaurants, pool halls, kids learning centers. But the traffic and people in the area are horrible and rude.

I don't feel safe in Biloxi. You can't leave anything in your car. There's a lot of people on drugs down here.

There isn't much to do for fun for kids or adults. There are casinos which is fun if you have the money to just throw away. There aren't any good museums or fun things to do for a date. It's always hot. It's fun to fish but the beaches are very dirty and not safe to go in. People have gotten very sick if they had a cut on them and went in the beach. It's very dangerous
