If the world is your oyster, find a hidden pearl in the small city of Picayune, Mississippi. Located in Pearl River County, its name means “small coin” in Spanish and holds much more value for explorers than its nearness to New Orleans. Watch birds take flight above the mysterious swamp as you inhale the sweet scent of magnolias and it’ll be hard to believe you're just minutes from the neon lights of the Big Easy.
When your plane lands at the Louis Armstrong International Airport, about 60 miles from Picayune, you’ll see verdant greenery all around and smell the salty tang of the bayou's brackish waters as you head to your destination. A range of Picayune hotel deals free up the budget of curious adventurers like yourself for more exploration in this new city. Step back in time on East Canal Street by roaming through musty antique shops full of hidden treasures. Feel the oiled wood of a colonial antique birdcage, or pick up an alligator head dating back more than a century. Sate your inner foodie along West Canal Street, where you can linger over a Southern-style brunch, washing down hearty biscuits and sausage gravy with a grapefruit mimosa.
Reserving a Picayune car rental lets you partake in the traditions of Bourbon Street revelry within minutes. Spend a night at one of the famous (or infamous) hotels in New Orleans, stepping right outside your front door and following the sound of live music. Guitar riffs in the air might lead you to a dive bar with cheap beer or an upscale lounge serving the famed NOLA hurricane cocktails. If you don't want to stay in the Big Easy, head back to one of the comfortable, affordable Picayune hotels.
