Gulf Coast

The Mississippi Gulf Coast’s 62 miles of scenic coastline offers an incredible variety of attractions, excursions and activities, from outdoor adventures, such as kayaking, boating, fishing and hiking, to a wide variety of attractions, museums, festivals, world-class gaming and championship golf courses.

Enjoy eco-tours of the rivers, marshes and bayous, a sunset Schooner Sail or Riverboat Paddle on the Gulf of Mexico or even a Shrimping Trip excursion to dive deep into the region’s fascinating maritime heritage.
