Attractions more than just a car show.

The only trouble you’ll have on your visit to the Mississippi Gulf Coast is deciding what you want to do first. Choose from landing a big one on one of our fishing charters, sinking a 40-footer at a professional-grade golf course, winning big at one of our casinos, finding that perfect outfit at a charming local boutique, or any number of our other entertaining and exhilarating activities!

There are art museums that will inspire you, one of America’s top 50 children’s museums that will motivate and pique the curiosity of your youngsters, and natural and historical museums that will interest and educate you. If you’re more action-oriented, you can throw a pot or paint a picture while participating in a workshop at one of our art museums.

With our sub-tropical climate, outdoor activities are a year-round option for the Gulf Coast vacationers. Nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts will find our temperate climate and natural activities second to none. Whether you take an eco-tour to view the wildlife or rent a kayak and paddle on one of our unspoiled rivers and bayous, you are certain to unwind while experiencing nature at its most pristine. Visitors are always excited to get up close and personal views of hundreds of species of birds, animals, and reptiles, including several threatened and endangered species that call Mississippi home. Other options for exploring the coast are by bike and hiking.

You’ll certainly find that visiting the Gulf Coast offers you a wide variety of choices and experiences, from the hottest casino action to the natural solitude of our backwoods, and everything you can imagine in between!

  • Family Activites

    The Mississippi Gulf Coast has always featured family friendly activities. Take the ferry out to Ship Island where historic Fort Massachusetts, crystal clear water, and a beach rated among the finest in the world await. And don't forget to look for the dolphins during your ride to and from the island. Take a tour aboard the Biloxi Shrimping trip and watch the captain haul in the nets and identify the daily catch.

    Choose from a day at the water park or a visit to our nationally acclaimed children's museum, The Lynn Meadows Discovery Center. The whole family will enjoy an eco-tour on the Tchoutacabouffa or Pascagoula River where experienced guides bring you to those hard to reach areas to experience and enjoy native wildlife. Along the beach, visitors can rent jet skis, kayak, or just relax.

  • Beach and Harbor Activities

    Unforgettable is the only word to describe Mississippi Gulf Coast's picturesque beaches! Sixty-two miles of scenic shoreline that includes twenty-six miles of soft white sand outlines gentle waves that dance on the water's surface offering an exceptional view from U.S. Highway 90, aka Beach Boulevard. A chain of barrier islands limits the amount of strong waves reaching the mainland beaches, making the resultant calm gentle waters ideal for water-based activities and children.

    Several pullovers provide convenient beach access, photo opportunities, and water adventures for beach goers. Pass Christian and Long Beach, which are just west of the Gulfport/Biloxi area are considered residential areas offering quieter, tranquil sections of beaches for sunbathing, romantic walks, or moonlight picnics. Comfort stations located at Long Beach Harbor, Jones Park, Courthouse Road and the Coliseum offer showers & drink machines as well along serving as bus stops for Coast Area Transit Authority buses.
