The charming town of Biloxi has lots to offer those who'd like to take a little trip to the Gulf Coast. With gorgeous scenic views, a fantastic art museum, and some of the best seafood around – you'll want to stop and stay awhile. After Hurricane Katrina, a lot of rebuilding has been done in the area. But, the activities and sights in Biloxi are back and better than ever. Families can go out on shrimping expeditions, tap into their Jimmy Buffett side (doesn't that sound nice?), and even cook their catch at local restaurants like Shaggy's and Morton's.
1. The New Margaritaville Resort
You’ll find a lazy river, slides, a swim-up bar, a climbing wall, and plenty of dining options. Plus, the whole joint's themed after Jimmy Buffett's laid-back attitude – so it feels like paradise.
2. Chartered Fishing Trips with Captain Jay or Captain Kenny
These two Biloxi natives were selected for the 2016 Legendary Captains and Crew Award, and will take you on the ride of your life. Be sure to keep an eye out for your catch!
