Biloxi, Mississippi: Barrier Islands, Casinos, and Nature Trails
Though the coast of Biloxi is studded with glitzy casinos, the pace of life here is far from frenetic. Beachcombers can pause to watch the sun cast out an orange and pink haze as it dips beneath the horizon at the Gulf of Mexico. About 9 miles outside the city, you can explore Mississippi’s barrier-island beaches and campgrounds on the Nature’s Way hiking trail. You can also ride a ferry to the mostly unspoiled Ship Island to snorkel or explore a fort that dates back to the 1860s.
For more fast-paced fun, families can zip down water slides and plunge into a wave pool at Gulf Islands Waterpark, located about a half hour away in nearby Gulfport. Its water roller coaster thrills with more than 500 feet of stomach-churning drops and twists.
