I spent a month in Gulfport awhile back and fell in love. Ever since I've wanted to move to ms. I'm a 22 year old single girl and I'm just curious about a few things. Where would be the safest area to move along the coast. I spent most of my time in Gulfport and Biloxi so somewhere near there. I won't have any friends and family there so I know that some boredom and loneliness will occur. Is it hard to meet other young people there? I don't really go out to clubs and bars much so I'd need to make friends another way! I enjoy shopping, going to the beach, working out, and I love bookstores. Also does anyone recommend a good church to go to? Preferably non denominational and welcoming. I work in insurance and know that ill be able to transfer jobs. I am considering taking a few classes at the community college. I guess I'm just hoping for some tips for when I get there. Places to avoid, things to do, etc... Oh! And I'm moving from Alaska. Idk if that makes a difference but I've been here my whole life. Thanks!!

I would say go with Gulfport or Biloxi. GUlfport was the city I first visited & fell in love with. I moved to MS when I was 24. I think there are more younger people in Gulfport & Biloxi and more things to do, IMO, in those 2 cities. OS is nice, but I don't think it has a lot of things for the younger crowd. Also the 2 military bases are in Gulfport & Biloxi so there will be a younger crowd in those areas also. Personally, I found it easiest to make friends through work. If there are other ways, please let me know lol. Also check out meetup.com see if they have a group you are interested in.

What brought you to MS before? And when was that?

The Mississippi Forum sure seems to be getting a lot of mysterious and nebulous inquiries as to 'best place to move', lately.

People offering information about their own communities may first wish to research what happened to Lewiston, Maine, before chiming in. And they may want to google-search the term 'VOLAGS'. These 'Voluntary' agencies are sopping-up government money (to pay their 'volunteers'), and destroying nice little communities all across America, by plopping down colonies of people from 'troubled' regions around the world.

I'm not saying this thread is not from a legitimate individual, or that the OP is not telling the truth. But I think posters should consider that there are organized groups looking for the few remaining places which have not already been 'enriched'. Again, I'm willing to assume the OP is for real. But posters should seriously consider the possible consequences, before jumping in and pitching their communities.

So it is clear now. You have a problem with "certain" people.

Why the vague assertion of racism? Damning with faint criticism is one step past doing it with faint praise. Did Gloria's post touch a nerve?

I would suggest Ocean Springs or D'Iberville. Ocean Springs is nice with lots of businesses and a downtown area with eateries and bars. Although I feel Ocean Springs is more family oriented, people with children enjoy it there because of the schools. D'Iberville is a nice small town with big business. A large variety of shopping and dining, new apartment complexes are up and there is an increasing presence of the younger crowd there. D'Iberville doesn't have much nightlife at all for meeting new people but right across the bridge is Biloxi and there's casinos and other activities and beaches. Biloxi and Gulfport are great, I just personally couldn't deal with the traffic on an everyday basis, but that's just me! Downtown Gulfport is where alot of people our age hang out, alot of military also as the Seabee base is in Gpt and Keesler AFB is in Biloxi. Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College has several campuses along the coast, one in Biloxi and the one in Gautier and there's one in Stone County right above Gulfport. There's also William Carey is in Gulfport (I may be wrong but it's in that area) and then University of Southern Miss has a campus in Long Beach (I believe). Good luck with your move!

The irony is that GreenMariner is, I sense, a member of at least one vulnerable group to whom one or another kind of 'certain people' being imported by the VOLAGS are likely to be abusive.

What would be interesting would be to observe GreenMariner's behavior/statements/attitudes after he has been abused by individuals from a predatory alien culture (assuming he survives the interaction). Would he shed the Operant Conditioning to which we have all been subjected by 'educators' and mass media? Or would the experience propel his psyche into full-blown Amy Biehl Syndrome?

How would I be one of those persons who would be likely to be abused?
