The South is chock full of gems, y’all. We’re talking about the cities that stay warm a little longer, where the locals have a dramatic drawl in their accents, and where the architecture will blow you away with its charm. And did we mention the food? While the region can seem a bit intimidating with its breadth and variety, we have some ideas on which city is right for you. Start with a weekend and then move on to the next one.

For Small-Town Fans: Bay St. Louis, Mississippi

In my worldwide search for cool, fun, and happy destinations, I spent five exciting days exploring the Mississippi Gulf Coast and the region quickly moved up my happy travel destinations list. I expected the Biloxi casinos and a Fins Up vibe due to local hero Jimmy Buffett but many things along the Mississippi Gulf Coast surprised me.

Surprised me in a very good way, that is.

While Visit Mississippi Gulf Coast—and various properties, attractions, and restaurants—hosted McCool Travel and picked up the tab for

SELECTING THE BEST places to eat barbecue in America has always been a monumentally difficult task, but it's even more so now, thanks to a new generation of pitmasters that's combined with a still crafty old guard to make the landscape more meat-packed than ever. But just because something is a challenge doesn't mean you shouldn't try. So we ate smoked meat. We talked to people who eat and smoke meat. We engaged in both aggressive and passive-aggressive arguments about smoked meat. In the end, we settled on these 33

I have been a Texan for my entire life. The Texas Gulf Coast, to be exact. When traveling from my neck of the woods to the East Coast by car, one typically travels on Interstate 10 -- first through Louisiana, then Mississippi, and finally Alabama, before arriving east. As long as I can remember, we've made that trip with an eye on speed. We never tarry because the Louisiana/Mississippi/Alabama stretch of highway is considered the "quick" leg of the trip.

I've seen the signage in Mississippi instructing us to

There are beach people, and then there are beach-appreciating people. I’m one of the latter.

I love the beach, but my idea of sand and surf is to walk along the Gulf waters, admiring birds, sand critters and the gorgeous Gulf sky. Or a cocktail in one hand while I sit on a hotel balcony watching the sun set, followed by a seafood dinner at a beachside restaurant.

Hotel Pass Christian sits top of my list in this regard, a new boutique hotel offering 10 comfortable coast-style rooms with the Elysian Salon

Family vacations typically trend toward theme parks and road trips to the same well-trodden destinations. Not surprisingly, Florida, California and New York have been holding steady as the top three most popular U.S. states to visit, according to a 2017 survey from the Family Travel Association and New York University School of Professional Studies. And national parks, a perennial favorite among families of school-aged children, are suffering from overcrowding drawing more and more numbers of visitors every year to the

Daydreaming of a road trip? The Federal Highway Administration has done all your homework for you. Though anyone who’s ever crept along in 5 miles-per-hour traffic may have a hard time admitting it, the United States has magnificent highway infrastructure, and when it comes to road trips, no element of that blacktop web is greater than the America’s Byways collection. To earn a place on this treasure map of 150 routes, the road must show "outstanding archaeological, cultural, historic, natural, recreational, and

When I first started researching family vacation destinations, I knew I wanted to head to the Gulf Coast. I have some great memories of visiting as a teenager, and I wanted my kids to experience the same.

Earlier this month we packed our bags and headed down to Biloxi, Mississippi for our first-ever beach vacation– woot!

Y’all, we had SUCH A SWEET TIME. Biloxi is a small city nestled between Gulfport and Ocean Springs. We found it to be incredibly family-friendly and overflowing with things to do!
