Mississippi Gulf Coast

Welcome to the Mississippi Gulf Coast.

2016 found Biloxi on the Mississippi Coast completely recovered from the devastation that was Hurricane Katrina...On August 29, 2005, the Mississippi Gulf Coast changed forever. That is the day Hurricane Katrina slammed into the Coast with Category 4 winds and a storm surge that exceeded 35 feet - a virtual tsunami that inundated the coastline from Pascagoula west to Waveland and overran all of the Coast's casinos inflicting catastrophic damages to beachfront and inland businesses and homes. But in 2016, you can see that Biloxi and the rest of the Mississippi Coast is better than ever.

The Mississippi Coast is one of the truly great value vacation locations in America. Terrific shopping, the beautiful beach and top tier casino resorts means you get more for you money than most anywhere in the country.

A tremendous amount is new on the Coast since Katrina. The area's highways and bridges have been completely rebuilt and many homes and amenities have returned or are brand new. Shopping is better than ever with Edgewater Mall in Biloxi. And in nearby historic Ocean Springs. In D'Iberville, new restaurants and the new Promenade Shopping Center are a big draw to the area.

The area's casinos in Biloxi and elsewhere on the Coast are better than ever, with new restaurants and fun themes. The Beau Rivage Resort & Casino, Biloxi Harrah's, the IP, the Isle of Capri, the Palace, Boomtown, Hard Rock and Treasure Bay, in Biloxi. Gulfport's Island View Casino (formerly the Gulfport Grand) provide a wide choice of gaming fun. The same is true in Hancock County, where you can find the Hollywood Casino in Bay St. Louis as well as the Silver Slipper in Waveland. And, there is a new casino under construction in D'Iberville, the Scarlet Pearl Resort.

Visitors coming here can see the resiliency and unique dynamics that make the Mississippi Coast a fun and affordable place to visit. Along with more top line entertainment and more to do, the Mississippi Coast a vacation destination that compares with the best anywhere.  Many of the other special features, such as Cruisin' the Coast, the Mississippi Deep Sea Fishing Rodeo, the Crawfish Festival and many more events are bigger too with more events coming throughout 2015.

The Coast's 26 miles of white sand beach remains a major attraction throughout its 26 mile length. There are also plenty of smaller beachfront motels that have been built and more on the way..

Out of the disaster of Katrina and the dreams of the people of the Mississippi Coast, a bright future is here. Come see it happen.
