A city with a long tradition of relaxation
Pass Christian’s port and easy access to abundant seafood made it a point of contention for these competing powers, but they were missing the point. This seaside jewel isn’t the place to struggle—it’s the place to rest. Well before the Civil War, the Pass had developed a reputation as a lovely summer getaway for those in New Orleans with the means to get away. It was a short trip even then, but with today’s fast travel, it’s almost dereliction of duty not to make the quick drive out to this beautiful beach town for an escape. There’s plenty to see and do—but there’s also plenty of nothing to be done, for those who truly need a refreshing, rejuvenating session of intensive beachside relaxation. Every member of the family and every type of traveler can find their place in the long tradition of escaping to Pass Christian for a bit of leisure. Come out to the coast and find yours!
