The Secret Coast, as it's called, is home to many romantic experiences that are sure to make for a memorable babymoon. Couples can enjoy a sunset cruise while looking out for dolphins, or they can stroll along the 26 miles of uninterrupted beach — the longest man-made beach in the nation. Couples can even book a fire pit on the beach and snuggle up with s'mores, or enjoy a luxury picnic on the sand with Coastal Picnic & Co. Enjoy Gulf-fresh seafood, sustainable fine dining, and fusion cuisine. 

For your cultural fix, the towns of Ocean Springs and Bay St. Louis boast wonderfully artsy, walkable downtown areas amongst the ancient live oaks.

Where to Stay: Bay Town Inn in Bay St. Louis is an intimate B&B perfect for a romantic babymoon getaway, and it's within walking distance of the beach, town, and nearby activities.
