If not, prepare yourself to experience the unexpected. South Mississippi is unlike the rest of the magnolia state. We have beaches (one of the longest man-made beaches in the country), picturesque landscapes, casinos, boats, seafood, Mardi Gras, Crusin’ the Coast and lots of festivals. We’re a fresh blend of relaxed and proper, where the the old south meets sandy sunsets. Located an hour from New Orleans, the Mississippi Gulf Coast is a string of 12 contiguous cities each with its own identity and treasures. Let locals show you the way.
Day Trippin’ Mississippi Gulf Coast is about the things real South Mississippians do for work and for pleasure. Come with your friends, your family, or your spouse. Or come by yourself and enjoy the random people you’ll meet here. Regardless of how you come, it’s time you find yourself on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
