Nicknamed the 'Playground of the South', the Mississippi coastline along the Gulf of Mexico, has been devastated by Hurricanes time after time and yet, it has always bounced back - bigger better and friendlier than before.
About half way between New Orleans, LA and Mobile, AL, the main 30-mile long stretch of beach extends from Ocean Springs in the east to Bay St. Louis in the west with the towns of Biloxi and Gulfport as the centerpiece.
The area provides all services required by visiting families, including a large selection of accommodation options, sailboat, surfing and jet ski rentals, restaurants, fishing piers, the opportunity to take an off shore cruise to the barrier islands and, obviously, some of the best beaches in America.
For the young and young at heart, the Casinos in Biloxi and Gulfport turn this section of the Gulf of Mexico into a 'mini-vegas'. Open 24 hours, seven days a week, they offer high limits, liberal rules and games that include craps, blackjack, mini-baccarat, all kinds of poker, roulette and, of course, slots, slots and mega-slots.
