Biloxi, Mississippi Travel Guide

Complete Vacation, Recreation and Tourism Information

Biloxi is located on the Gulf Coast of Mississippi. Due to its strategic location, it has witnessed a variety of cultures take hold over the years. Once home to the Biloxi Indians, the French arrived in the late 1600s, and then the Spanish held strong positions. In fact, remnants of Spanish dominance can still be experienced, with a visit to the Old Spanish Fort in nearby Pascagoula.

Biloxi boasts several gorgeous homes built in the mid 1800s. Many reflect evidence of planter society wealth, and are open to the public. One exceptional visit is to the estate of Beauvoir, the retirement place of Confederate President Jefferson Davis. Its designation as a National Historic Landmark, only reinforce its importance. Guests will truly enjoy a tour of this huge estate, and as a bonus get a glimpse into the life of Jefferson Davis.

For those who enjoy home and garden tours, Biloxi is a gem. March means Spring Pilgrimage time in Biloxi. Homes, gardens, and various historic sites open up to the public, offering visitors a peek at true Southern culture.

Visitors who relish the surf and sand will be delighted to explore nearly 30 miles of beautiful beach. The inviting beach encourages visitors to enjoy a long walk, play in the surf, or simply sit and relax a while and people watch. For those who need action, sporting opportunities abound. Visitors can catch a ride on a jet ski, take pleasure in a romantic sailboat excursion, try their luck at deep-sea fishing, parasail, or explore lush fairways at one the many well-regarded golf courses.

Those with children should not leave without a stop to the Lynn Meadows Discovery Center. This fabulous children's museum offers little ones the opportunity to explore their environment in a fun and safe manner. Because the museum features interactive displays specific for the region- it's likely that children will enjoy once in a lifetime thrills. The Oceanarium features excellent programs, that include exotic birds and dolphin shows.

Several barrier islands sit just off the coast of Biloxi and make up the popular Gulf Islands National Seashore. Only accessible by boat or ferry, the gorgeous, unspoiled beaches found make for a breathtaking site. Although undeveloped, the islands offer much to do, including hiking, fishing, beach-combing, and outstanding opportunities for nature photography. Bird watching is a prized activity as more than 260 species of birds await discovery. Ship Island is home to Fort Massachusetts, which was occupied during the Civil War. This grand example of a masonry fort is available for touring.

Biloxi is located on the most southern tip of Mississippi, about 175 miles south of Jackson, MS on the Gulf of Mexico.
