Don't let the weather keep you from experiencing all that the Mississippi Gulf Coast has to offer! Here on the Coast, you can choose from a long list of exciting indoor activities.


Discover local history and art

There is no shortage of culture on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, largely thanks to its deep history and thriving arts communities. Immerse yourself in local history at Beauvoir or the Maritime & Seafood Industry Museum, both of which offer a closer look at the unique past of the Coast.


Several talented and noteworthy artists called the Mississippi Gulf Coast home, and their legacies can be seen right here on the Coast. View the intricate pottery pieces of George Ohr, the self-proclaimed “Mad Potter of Biloxi,” at the Ohr O’Keefe Museum of Art, where the campus is a piece of art in itself. Then take a quick trip down the Coast to the Walter Anderson Museum of Art, where you’ll discover the colorful, coastal-inspired works of Walter Anderson.

Eat your way down the Coast

You can’t come to the Coast and not indulge in some good eats, especially on a day when the weather is less than ideal. If you find yourself on the west side of the Coast, then stop into Dempsey’s Seafood & Steak in Kiln for a family-style dining experience, or enjoy a bayside view at The Blind Tiger in Bay St. Louis. If you’re in the Biloxi-Gulfport area, then you can’t go wrong with Half Shell Oyster House in Gulfport or Baja Beach located right on the Mississippi Sound in Biloxi. The east side of the Coast also offers some incredible options, like The Shed in Ocean Springs or Scranton’s in Pascagoula.
