Angela A's City Tips

  • Visit one or two of the beach shops for your beach gear. It is often less expensive to purchase a beach chair, than to rent one for the day!
  • Be sure to drink plenty of water and apply that sunscreen!
  • If you are planning to stay right on the main casino strip in Biloxi, the trolley is a nice form of transportation.
  • Ship Island

    Angela A Says:

    Ship Island is something that anyone visiting Biloxi will want to experience; a serene, gorgeous island only accessible via ferry. Look out for dolphins as you enjoy the 50-minute ride over to this secluded stretch, 11 miles offshore.

    Beauvoir is the former home and estate of Jefferson Davis. While it includes indoor attractions such as the mansion and the Presidential Library, the outer grounds are beautiful, and definitely worthy of exploring.

    Tips
    • In the busiest areas of the beach, rentals are available for chairs and umbrellas, as well as water sports. (Do check out the prices of beach chairs in local shops too, as sometimes buying rather than renting works out cheaper.)
    • Families with small children may wish to go to the beach area down by the large gift shops, where the water is shallower due to sandbars.

    While the Biloxi Lighthouse, built in 1848, showcases some interesting, historical artifacts; the real highlight of a visit here are the unparalleled views from its outside observation deck. As an iconic symbol of Biloxi, it's a definite must-see, and a great place to better understand the lay of the land.
