Dos: Don't come here or live here. If you can afford to retire, be smart & go to Florida like the rest of them, or hell, go to Hawaii. Even Miami gets cold in the winter but Hawaii stays perfect year round.

Don't -- don't come here. Only nuts & ppl with family come here by choice.

First, the biggest don't: Don't listen to the likes of the slackers and whiners who post all negative all the time on this blog.

The Gulf Coast is a wonderful place to visit and live. I don't know what state you live in or are culturally close to but the lifestyle here would probably be a bit different. Some residents think we have a year long carnival which includes Mardi Gras, street festivals almost weekly, blues music is adored and cultural events are spread among the other events throughout the year. Food wise we are pigs, we eat almost anything from crawfish to catfish, Mirlitons to melons all locally grown.

Our passion for pickup trucks, football and story telling is large. The coast is home to some very good public secondary schools and branches of Tulane, Southern Mississippi university and other four year institutions and universities abound.

Local politics feature all the elements for a TV drama including back-stabbing, double-crossing, lying, thievery, indictments and the chicanery that happens in most local politics across the country.

This is just an overview of the coast, please come, look enjoy and perhaps you will like what you see.

On the plus side, if you are considering relocation, the real estate market is still good here. We weren't hurt nearly as badly as other parts of the country.

Laissez les bons temps rouler!

My family is considering a move to the area. Does anyone have suggestions regarding home purchase/good locations?

Don't..... Visited Biloxi... the water is murky and brown... due to all the reasons you've already read. Barrier Islands... The Deltas. Had a personal, private yacht tour to Ship Island, Deer Island, Cat Island and Horn Island. Ship Island was prettiest. Horn Island had these bugs that bit/stung you the whole time. Truthfully, such a long way to get to a decent looking beach, by water. Casino life is cool... but if it's white, beautiful, sandy beaches and clear, blue/green water you're looking for... don't waste your money or time vacationing in Biloxi. From Destin/PCB east.... JUST BEAUTIFUL. Go there! I have no desire to ever really go to Biloxi again.
