I plan on moving to Mississippi fairly soon. I am moving their for the southern hosipitality, southern temperament, hot weather, southern belles, and for less crime, traffic, and pollution. When I move from chicago to Mississippi, I will be in my mid to late 20's with a degree in Elementary Education. I prefer a small town feel with untouched nature as I am coming from an extremely populated/dense area. I don't have my mind on Turkey Creek, I just used that as an attention getter. I just want to find the right fit for my interests. Can you advise a place that fits the bill?

As an educator, you will appreciate the Ocean Springs school system in Jackson County, just immediately to the east of Biloxi. Also, the Long Beach school system in Harrison County, immediately west of Gulfport/Biloxi is also highly ranked. These are more like bedroom communities of the tourist impaled Biloxi/Gulfport areas. Mind you...these are MS ranking, which I bet my life on is way behind what Chicago is at in terms of achievement. I'm from the suburbs of Milwaukee, WI and have just moved back there after a 1 1/2 year stay on the coast. If you can tolerate all the litter...its not a clean place...it can be a wonderful place to reside. Alot to do and incredibly weather! Good luck!
