Welcome to the City of Pearl
The “Jewel of the Crossroads”
The City of Pearl is nestled along four transportation arteries in Mississippi: Interstate 55 and Interstate 20, U.S. Highways 80 and 49., and also provides easy access to national and international destinations with the Jackson-Evers International Airport in our backyard.
Pearl has been designated a member of the Mississippi Main Street Association and is a superior place to live, work and play.
Living here makes you part of a 27,000-member family. There is a wide range of housing available for every income level. The Pearl Public School District is prestigiously “A” rated by the Mississippi Department of Education. We are consistently rated among the safest cities in the state. Our city staff provides first-class service at every level from Police and Fire, to Public Works, Parks and Recreation to Senior Services and Community Development. Pearl is also blessed to have its own TV and radio broadcast stations in Pearl Municipal Broadcasting (PMB) TV and 104.3 FM “The Pirate”.
When it comes to working here, Pearl has a strong, business-friendly community with diverse employment opportunities. From retail to dining, hotels and manufacturing, as well as higher education and state offices, Pearl has it all. The Pearl Chamber of Commerce is recognized as a centerpiece for business promotion and economic development.
When it comes to play, there are state-of-the-art parks and recreation re-development ongoing, tremendous shopping opportunities all over the city including Bass Pro Shops, Sam’s and the Outlets of Mississippi. The Mississippi Braves, the AA franchise of the mighty Atlanta Braves, have called Trustmark Park and Pearl their home since 2005. Other unique entertainment options include Cinemark XD Movie Theatre, E-Plex Connection City Virtual Gaming, the D-Bat baseball training facility, Launch Trampoline Park, Fun Time Skateland, and more.
Since being incorporated in 1973, Pearl has always worked hard for its residents, businesses and visitors. That commitment remains strong as Pearl continues to shine as the “Jewel of the Crossroads”.
