Pass Christian, Long Beach, and Gulfport, Mississippi Professional Review and Guide
"From breeze-swept white-sand beaches and antebellum Greek Revival and West Indies–style mansions to glitzy casinos, river kayaking and Civil War–era forts, this stretch of the Mississippi Gulf Coast is about as eclectic as its gets in the Deep South. As like-minded yet unique as cousins who grew up in the same neighborhood, Pass Christian, Long Beach, and Gulfport are linked by the region’s undeserved reputation as the Redneck Riviera, as well as its keen survivor instincts and community pride following the devastating wrath of Hurricane Camille in 1969. This historic enclave embodies what many consider to be the best of all possible Mississippi Gulf Coast worlds. A mostly residential community, Pass Christian (pronounced kris-tee-ANN) boasts scenic harbor fronts, pristine beaches, and shopping in an historic downtown district.
