Mississippi Gulf Coast
How will you relax on the Mississippi Gulf Coast?
Will you hit the links on one of our signature golf courses or hit blackjack at one of our casino resorts? Give yourself a day of luxurious spa treatments, or treat yourself to fresh seafood? Lounge on our 26 mile long beach, or go after the big ones on a charter fishing boat?
Take time to explore the natural offerings of the Mississippi Gulf Coast during an eco tour. The Pascagoula River is the last unregulated major river system in the lower 48 states. You just might see an alligator or two during your boat ride. The Wolf River is perfect for canoeing and kayaking with a variety of trips to fit your schedule. Biloxi’s Back Bay offers easy access to The Biloxi and Tchoutacabouffa Rivers. Because of the brackish water at the entry of these rivers, you can catch fresh and salt water species here. When your pole bends, you never know what you might reel in!
Play at one of our eleven casino resorts. The slots are hot and we offer exciting action at the blackjack tables, roulette wheels, craps tables and poker rooms. There are games for everyone from penny slots to playing baccarat in sophisticated High Limit areas. For a delicious meal, you never have to go far. Each casino features multiple restaurants on property, which ensures cuisine diverse enough to please everyone's palate.
The area boasts 13,000 rooms. Accommodations range from the luxury of penthouse suites to the fun of a little mom-and-pop motor court. The RV fan will find plenty of parks available.
You won’t believe the headliners starring on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Performers like Jay Leno, B.B. King, and the Beach Boys just to name a few. Go to our website at www.gulfcoast.org/events to see a current schedule.
The Mississippi Gulf Coast features signature courses designed by the likes of Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Tom Fazio and Jerry Pate. With twenty courses to choose from, you could swing clubs for weeks and never play the same hole twice.
Everyone asks about the shopping. The Mississippi Gulf Coast is dotted with unique boutiques, factory outlets, and places where you can find that special gift. Works by our talented artists and craftsmen are available throughout the area. Antiquing here is a sport in itself. If you are looking for mint collectibles or pieces that need a little loving care, you can find them on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
With all the fun and excitement going on, it’s nice to know you can take a break and take in a museum. Contemplate the works of George Ohr, the ”Mad Potter of Biloxi”, at the Frank Gehry designed Ohr-O’Keefe Museum of Art. Or experience Horn Island through the eyes of Walter Anderson at the museum devoted to his works.
For outdoor fun take the ferry out to Ship Island where historic Fort Massachusetts, crystal clear water, and a beach rated among the finest in the world awaits your footprints. Take a tour aboard a working shrimp boat, watch the skipper haul in the nets and see the catch for you. Choose from a day at the water park or a visit to a nationally rated children’s museum. Along the beach, visitors can rent jet skis, or kayak.
Those seeking a festival won't have to look far. Some locals say that the Gulf Coast has a celebration for every crustacean. Certainly, the abundance of fresh seafood – crabs, shrimp, oysters, fish, crawfish – is reason enough to have a party, isn't it?
Stop wishin’ and start relaxing on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
