Mississippi — Davis Bayou Campground, Gulf Islands National Seashore
Come for the bayous, stay for the beach. Visitors spot armadillos and alligators as they explore a pair of bayous via nature trail or paddle trip, then hop a boat ride to uninhabited barrier islands where there’s sun, sand and little else. When you crave more civilization, Ocean Springs has numerous art galleries as well as killer pulled pork at the Shed.
