The Coast's many casinos are bigger and more luxurious than ever and with the change to land-based casinos, which was approved by the legislature shortly after Katrina, all of the casino resorts are more fun and elaborate, complete with the excitement that only a Mississippi Coast casino vacation can be.
Four golf courses with Biloxi affiliations are ranked in the nation's Top 50 by Golfweek magazine: Ranked at No. 2 is Fallen Oak, Beau Rivage; No. 23, Grand Bear, Grand Casino; No. 39, The Preserve, Palace Casino Resort; and No. 40, Shell Landing, IP.
Mississippi law requires all the
casinos on the Coast to be near the shoreline, which is a great place to be
because of the fun and views such locations offer. With
today's economy, getting the most 'Bang for the Buck' vacation is what
the Mississippi Coast has to offer. Premier entertainers, luxurious and
affordable rooms and outstanding golf are part of the mix of entertainment.
And then there are the unique restaurants and plenty of shopping at the
Coast stores and boutiques.
The photo above is Biloxi's beachfront casino row from the parking garage at the Beau Rivage. The foreground is the oak-lined entrance to the Beau Rivage Resort & Casino looking east. As you can see, this is no Hurricane Katrina disaster area any more as the Mississippi Coast has become again the best vacation value in the South.
The IP here is seen photographed across Biloxi's Back Bay from the west. As you can see, Casinos in Biloxi are large operations with services and amenities that you would find at any quality casino resort anywhere in the world. The advantage here though, is easy access to the 26-mile beach along with fabulous deep-sea fishing, historic Mississippi Coast communities, and shopping. If that is not enough, the Mississippi Coast is only a 1½ hour drive to historic New Orleans. There is no place anywhere like it.
In picturesque Bay St. Louis the Hollywood Casino is bigger and better than ever and a favorite of golfers with its on-site Arnold Palmer-designed golf course, The Bridges. The casino also features an onsite RV park.
Among the improvements to the Mississippi Coast are improved roadways such as a brand new U.S. 90 (the beach highway). Biloxi also is moving quickly on more than a billion dollars of community improvements. In Biloxi, the improvements include a new recently opened library and community center, a new park called Lighthouse Park and Visitor's Center, a new Seafood Industry Museum and much more.
