Biloxi was the third largest city in the state of Mississippi after Jackson and Gulfport, but that was only true until hurricane Katrina. The location of the city didn't really help it withstanding the onslaught of the hurricane, so now it is the fifth largest city in the state. The Mississippi is an unpredictable river sometimes. Biloxi and other cities along the river benefit from it, and life is generally beautiful. Having to deal with the rare hurricane is a small concession for many residents who see the rich quality of life and economic prospects in Biloxi. In Mississippi hurricanes are regarded as a cleansing, a chance to start over. You would think a storm would dim the lights a bit and cause an exodus but as southerners know, the river will test your mettle, but repay you ten-fold if you show it you're made of stronger stuff. That's just what Biloxi did. When Katrina hit, it hurt a lot of casinos, but since then eight have been rebuilt and re-opened and now it is Boomtown all over again. Due to the redevelopment and the improvement of the waterfront and the many houses in Biloxi, real estate is at a premium. Everything looks and smells new. There is still a new airport that has also seen some development and roadways have been redone. The city of Biloxi has an excellent public school system, as well as a large number of private Catholic schools. Moreover, Virginia College has a campus here that offers programs ranging from office management to medicine.
