Slide 15 of 31: Also known as Mississippi Gulf Coast or, appropriately, “The Secret Coast”, this 62-mile (100km) stretch may be something of a surprise to those who think Mississippi is all blues, BBQ and bayous. This area has a bit of that too, of course, alongside caster-sugar beaches, casinos, golf courses and fishing piers. Idyllic, shell-scattered Ship Island is a short ferry hop away. COVID-19 measures are in place – check the official page for updates.
