  • Spartan Race
    Extreme athletes banded together to design Spartan Races' intense courses orchestrated over standardized distances, each strewn with natural and man-made obstacles to test mind-body fitness, resilience, stamina, and strength, designed to leave participants exhausted and exhilarated. In waves of 200, runners collect smudges and stains as they perform box jumps, haul heavy sandbags, and juke feral linebackers. Depending on where in the world they're participating, the course may be as short as 3 miles or, for extremely practiced athletes, as long as a full marathon.

  • Ohr-o'Keefe Museum of Art
    Designed by celebrated architect Frank Gehry, the Ohr-O'Keefe Museum of Art exalts the work of George E. Ohr, a ceramic artist and moustache enthusiast known as the "Mad Potter of Biloxi." After it was destroyed in 2005 by Hurricane Katrina, the campus reopened in 2010 amidst a grove of ancient live-oak trees, featuring a series of six aesthetically impressive pavilions that include a welcome center, a gallery of African-American art, and an interpretive center inside a reconstruction of the house of emancipated craftsman Pleasant Reed. Current exhibitions include collections from some of the art world's biggest names, including Andy Warhol and ceramic sculptor Jun Kaneko, as well as selections from Ohr's Gulf Coast collection, which inspired the American Modernist movement and several MLB baseball teams to wear ceramic pots instead of baseball hats.

  • Beauvoir-Jefferson Davis Shrine
    Jefferson Davis may have been president of the Confederate States of America, but he didn't spend his whole life as a public figure. In his later years, he retired to the lush Beauvoir property, a cottage, cemetery, and collection of gardens. There he wrote, read, and relaxed until he passed away in 1889. Today, the property commemorates his complex legacy. Modern visitors explore Davis's library and rose garden, view reproductions of his kitchen and cistern, and even meet him?or at least, a life-size bronze statue of him posed with his son and grandson.
