The Mississippi Gulf Coast has a rich multicultural heritage.   Beginning with the Indians who first called the Mississippi Gulf Coast home to the French and Spanish settlers to the Croatian and Vietnamese fishing families and the many men and women stationed at Keesler Air Force Base.  The Mississippi Gulf Coast has been influenced by each group. 

Many restaurants serve cuisine specific fare such as Chinese, Japanese, or Italian.  However, the influences of different cultures have created local cuisine that can't be found just anywhere.  Coastal Cajun and seafood dishes are found on menus across the coast.

The multicultural heritage of the Mississippi Gulf Coast is further showcased through the area attractions.  From St. Augustine's Grotto in Bay St Louis, Fort Massachusetts 12 miles south of the Coastline, the Ohr-O'Keefe Museum of Art to the Mississippi Blues and Country Music Trails we celebrate our diverse cultural backgrounds.

We invite you to enjoy our cultural attractions, restaurants and events.
