Pass Christian

The City of Pass Christian is a quiet resort community with timeless charm and beauty, providing a simple, laid-back lifestyle close to the conveniences of the larger Coast cities.

Named for a deepwater pass in the Mississippi Sound, Pass Christian was discovered by French-Canadian explorers in 1699, shortly after the first French colony was established in Biloxi.

Throughout its history, the seafood industry has anchored Pass Christian’s economy. The oyster reefs that lie just offshore are among the largest on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.

Early on, families from nearby New Orleans recognized Pass Christian’s quiet appeal and flocked there for weekends and summers. It has continued to be a popular getaway with bed and breakfasts, restaurants, art galleries, boutiques, a beautiful harbor and the second oldest yacht club in the United States.

Pass Christian is also an attractive community for families. It is home to a state-of-the-art school, Boys and Girls Club and community center.
