This area is unmatched in its ability to connect people to natural beauty and deep culture and diversity. There are plenty of ways to take your journey off of the beaten path and truly experience South Mississippi in a way that will create memories for a lifetime.

The Mississippi Gulf Coast is home to some of the most breathtaking sunrises and sunsets anywhere. We’re not being biased, it’s just geography. Because South Mississippi is situated with a mostly southward-facing coastline, we’re perfectly positioned to see the sun come up over the water and go back down over the water every day. That makes for some pretty spectacular sights. And there are plenty of ways to catch all of that beauty.

With more than 26 miles of beautiful white sandy beaches, flat terrain, and gorgeous views coastwide, it’s a no-brainer that the Mississippi Gulf Coast is a runner/walker’s paradise. In fact, the coast is now the home of a Boston-qualifying marathon, on top of numerous 5Ks and other races throughout the year. So, in order for you to fully take advantage of the pedestrian routes that are naturally laid out across the coast, we’ve come up with a runner’s guide to South Mississippi that will have you moving in no time.
