I remember visiting Biloxi before Katrina and just thought it was a charming town with the big mansions and oak trees facing the ocean. I want to return. Is it still like that?? Still charming or is it like a mini las vegas now. Is the old serb/croation community still in Biloxi or is that gone. Thanks

The Coast cleaned up well. Much of the lots along the beach highway are just grass presently, except for spots here and there with a business, the Coliseum, the mall, some casinos including as you said in the heart of Biloxi, and some condos. The first streets parallel to the Coast have houses in some cases on both sides and just on the north side in others. It's mostly all fixed except for the open spaces. Many of the mansions in Pass Christian were on higher ground and survived. Ocean Springs wasn't effected as much due to its slight elevation and it's thriving.

Next up...the beach is being rebuilt into a self-sustaining beach with dunes and sea grasses. It will be several feet higher and will have an open beach along the water. Along the beach highway they are building a walking and biking concrete boardwalk.
