Although Biloxi, on Mississippi’s Gulf Coast, was greatly damaged during Hurricane Katrina in 2005, much of the damage has been repaired and it is once again a vibrant city. It’s known for its range of casinos, but Biloxi also offers a strong sense of history and plenty of opportunities to interact with nature.
A great place to start your visit is at the Biloxi Visitors Center. Here, you can pick up maps and brochures, see a short film on life in Biloxi and browse museum exhibits about the history of the area. For a nominal fee, you can book a guided tour of the historic Biloxi Lighthouse, which is one of the most photographed images on the Gulf Coast.
Learn more about Biloxi’s history by visiting the 50-acre (20-hectare) property known as Beauvoir. This was the final home of Jefferson Davis, a major figure during the American Civil War. It’s also home to the Tomb of the Unknown Confederate Soldier and the Civil War Museum.
Casinos are another important part of Biloxi’s attractions. The city has nine, including the Beau Rivage Casino Resort, the Hard Rock Hotel and the Grand Casino. For a smoke-free venue, visit the New Palace Casino Point Cadet.
Set aside an afternoon to visit Ship Island, 12 miles (19 kilometers) south of the city. The island is perfect for nature lovers who are interested in fishing, shelling, sunbathing or wildlife spotting. It can be reached by a dedicated shuttle boat and offers amenities such as restrooms and snack bars.
For some quiet time, spend a few hours at the Old Biloxi Cemetery, where you can visit a memorial wall honoring those killed during Hurricane Katrina. The historic cemetery also features headstones from the 1800s belonging to Biloxi’s founders and Civil War soldiers.
Driving is the easiest way to get around Biloxi, but if you do need to get public transport, consider using the Coast Transit Authority’s Casino Hopper. This bus service stops at the Visitor Center and other attractions as well as all the casinos.
