Hello. Im interested in relocating to the area. Im looking for a decent neighborhood as I dont have alot of money but dont want to live in the bad parts of town either. I see some nice houses online in the $60-$70 range that im very curious about. What areas are considered the bad parts of town in these cities?

Does Gulfport feel like a crowded city? Traffic congestion?
Does anyone in the area get nervous about storms and flooding? How often do harsh storms come through?

thanks for any info

We go to the coast a couple times a year for the weekend usually, so I am no expert on the coast but I am familiar with the area. In Biloxi; Woolmarket, St. Martin, and Ploesti Drive area is where I would live. It seems the worst parts of town are just north of highway 90 in the Whetstone Rd area, Division Street, Kensington Drive.

In Gulfport, probably New Hope or North Swan Road are better areas. There are others and maybe someone else will know.

For both cities you are better off residing north of I-10 as far as flooding and flood insurance.

Traffic is not that bad, however, we don't live there so there may be certain times of the day when traffic is increased.

We currently live in Long Beach.
Good schools and some less expensive homes.

Not much traffic.
