These neighboring cities on the Mississippi Gulf Coast offer a lot for families, starting with, of course, the beach. This free attraction offers hours of entertainment, whether bodysurfing in the waves, building sand castles or just reading a book in the shade of an umbrella. Do you have kids (and parents!) who love trains? If so, do not miss the Mississippi Coast Model Railroad Museum in Gulfport. This free museum contains multiple model train layouts, including an entire LEGO layout. Make sure you participate in the scavenger hunts so you catch every detail. Sports fans will enjoy a game with the Biloxi Shuckers, a Double-A affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers. You can score stadium seat tickets for $10, and the views are fantastic regardless of where you sit. Of course, there is so much more to do in this area, including hiking, shrimping tours, swamp tours, museums and more, not to mention fantastic food.
