Nestled on the southeastern edge of the state, Mississippi’s Flagship City, Pascagoula is a stone’s throw from the Alabama line. The combination of beautiful homes, businesses and beaches show why the city’s motto says it’s “A Great Place to Live, Work & Play.” In 2010, Outdoor Life Magazine rated it one of the 200 best towns in America. Huntington Ingalls Industries, the largest military shipbuilding company in America, is building ships for the U.S. Navy among others in Pascagoula.

Population: 22,224
