Bay St. Louis: One Of Southern Living’s Most Affordable Small Towns

By Gardner Realtors | August 11, 2017

You hear that? That’s the constant buzz surrounding one of our favorite Gulf Coast Cities, Bay St. Louis. It’s a buzz that started shortly after the beautiful rebound the city accomplished after Hurricane Katrina. And the admiring chatter has only grown louder in the past year or so. Don’t believe us?


Check out this recent barrage of praise:

Top 50 Places to Be in the South – Southern Living

Best Little Beach Towns – Coastal Living Magazine

America’s Coolest Small Towns – Budget Travel

Top Place You Need to Visit – Virtual Travel




Get ready to add a new accolade to the list. Southern Living just released their new list of 15 affordable small towns that they love. This list is comprised of “vibrant communities loaded with charm and character…our favorite budget-friendly picks.”  We couldn’t think of a better description for BSL, whose truthful slogan is “A Place Apart.” This charming little town on the Mississippi Gulf Coast has genuinely set itself apart as a vibrantly colorful hub of art, music and culture. And even better, you get all of this in a way that’s easy on your wallet!

Southern Living hits on the new and traditional hot spots of BSL: the municipal pier and harbor, the L&N Train DepotMardi Gras Museum and all the sights and sounds of Old Town. We agree that these are great and could go on and on listing our favorite restaurants, bars, art galleries and more. But, we think you should grab your bike or your walking shoes and come find out for yourself!
