Why Ocean Springs,MS?

    Ocean Springs is a beautifully small town situated between Biloxi and Pascagoula. The town has a reputation as an arts community. Its historic and secluded downtown area, with streets lined by live oak trees, is home to several art galleries and shops. It is also home to a number of ethnic restaurants relatively uncommon in surrounding communities.

    Ocean Springs is known for its schools. They are an “A” school district and Have been for several years. This growing town in my opinion is perfect for anyone who is looking to purchase their first home and start a family. The downtown area of Ocean Springs is charming as can be. You will find streets lined with hundred year old oak trees that you can walk under to enjoy a cup of fresh brewed coffee from the local coffee shop French Kiss and walk to the fresh market on Saturday mornings were you will find Mississippi State certified, producer only farmers market.

      Enjoyed Ida’s description of Ocean Springs as an Arts community. Wish they had more charming cottages with appeal for sale.
