On the narrow strip of Gulf shore that belongs to Mississippi, Biloxi is a shining beacon of resort fun in an otherwise mostly land-locked state. While Mississippi may be named after a river, its residents flock to the coast to relax in the sunshine, dip their toes in the water, and romance Lady Luck.
The main drag of Biloxi is lined with casinos and resorts that cater to the weekender and those who want to let loose. Step off the beaten path, however, and you’ll see that there’s much more to this city, whose name means “First People.” North, across Biloxi Bay lies D’Iberville, named after the French explorer who first landed here in 1699. To the west is the larger city of Gulfport. To the east lie quieter shores lined with fish camps, which perch over the water on stilts and are often occupied by boating outdoorsmen. But don’t take our word for it—experience it for yourself at one of our Biloxi vacation rentals.
It doesn’t take long to find a casino in Biloxi. They shimmer and glow all along Beach Avenue. Their charms have lured many a visitor inside, so go ahead. We won’t tell. If you’re looking for, well, pretty much the exact opposite of that, then take a shrimping tour instead. You’ll learn about the people who capture these delicious creatures, and it could inspire you to create Gulf-sourced culinary creations in your very own vacation rental kitchen.
What’s better than staying right on the beach in Biloxi? How about being close to some of the city’s less-visited attractions, like the Cathedral of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin and Biloxi Lighthouse? Beau Rivage has you covered Or, stay off the beaten path at WoodSpring Suites Gulfport just down the road.
