What do you like about Biloxi? Friendly people and beautiful scenery on the beach/ old houses; and the rebel flag that flew over Beauvoir.
What do you dislike about Biloxi? Right now, the fact that Katrina destroyed it....and that it's too humid.
What are your favorite parts of the city to live and/or hang out in? I enjoy living where I do; it's in close proximity to anything I need/want.
How expensive is it? Not very, compared to many other "tourist trap" cities...like everywhere in Florida.
Is it safe? Where I live, yes. But if you have connections, you're safe anywhere. It's great.
How is the weather? Too humid...but glad it gets coldish during xmas.
Additional thoughts? It's a great place to live; good food, great people. It's just like anywhere else. You have to give it a chance.

What do you like about Biloxi? Cultural proximity to new orleans and mobile, but better beaches than both which facilitate plenty of room for family gatherings, parties, and sun bathing beautiful persons of either gender.
What do you dislike about Biloxi? It is really really really hot, and there is almost NO public transportation.
What are your favorite parts of the city to live and/or hang out in? I like to grab a bite of Vietnamese on Division St. or to the boats (our vulgar for 'casino') for a drink, but some people like the short drive to O.S. or B.S.L. for artistic atmosphere.
How expensive is it? Meager. If you know what you're looking for and where to find it, then everything is cheap. However chain stores and a economy catering more and more to tourists mess up the economy a little bit. Gas stays around the National Average, today it's about $2.35 or $2.45
Is it safe? It depends on who you are and where you are, and what you're doing there, just like any other place. But you can find crime, crack, and other less seelie aspects of quasi-urban life centrally located on Division St. Which is quite infamous here. And due to air on A&E's City Confidential, most people know about the Dixie Mafia.
How is the weather? Christmas varies between shorts and sweatpants (it would really be pushing it to go below 20) but summer is a demon hell-ride (to borrow from the late great Wesley Willis) of heat featuring sauna-esque walls of heat that barrage you as soon as you step outside and utterly random tropical afternoon showers.
Additional thoughts? A lot of people find it to be just right. I've heard it deemed quaint. I suppose it has it's own unique niche in that we have sand, sun, rednecks, and a sickening ratio of residents-to-tourists.
