Biloxi is a city in Harrison County, on the Gulf Coast of Mississippi. It's well known for its beaches and casinos, though one casino and the beach are still in repair.
The city is part of the Gulfport-Biloxi metropolitan area and the Gulfport-Biloxi-Pascagoula, Mississippi Combined Statistical Area. Pre-Katrina, Biloxi was the third largest city in Mississippi; but with its population losses following that storm, Hattiesburg now has that distinction.
The beachfront of Biloxi lies directly on the Mississippi Sound, with barrier islands scattered off the coast and into the Gulf of Mexico.
Keesler Air Force Base lies within the city and is home to the 81st Training Wing and the 403rd Wing of the U.S. Air Force Reserve.
Many attractions are still closed due to severe damage in the 2005 hurricane season. Except for limited stretches, most beaches in the area are closed. Some small stretches near the intersection of I-110 and US-90 are open, but most access to water is limited or prohibited due to storm debris in the water.
