This Labor Day Weekend, why not treat yourself to a weekend full of adventure in one of the most charming destinations around? The Mississippi Gulf Coast has continued to add incredible amenities to what was an already impressive lineup of offerings to its visitors. With more fun to be had here than ever before, you just have to decide how you want to spend your fun-filled trip!

Barrier Islands and Boat Trips

Arguably the most authentic Mississippi Gulf Coast experience you can have is at one of our gorgeous barrier islands. If you’re looking for white sand beaches with some history, hop on Ship Island Excursions and go see Fort Massachusetts for yourself! If you’d rather try to land the big one, there are countless charter fishing companies ready to help you do just that out at Cat Island. And if you’re just in the mood to party, you can bet that there’ll be no shortage of people enjoying a cold one in the clear waters out at Horn Island!

There are also several boat tours along the Mississippi Gulf Coast that showcase the region’s various waterways and wildlife. The Betsy Ann riverboat offers a couple of different relaxing cruise options on the Mississippi Sound that will give you and your family or friends the ultimate scenic experience, while the Biloxi Shrimping Trip provides a riveting and interactive experience that teaches all about the shrimping industry on the Coast! If you prefer to set sail and get nautical, check out some of our great sailing charter options!

Bet on Your Favorite Team

As of August 1, 2018, Mississippi became just the fourth state in the U.S. to legalize sports betting, and with college football kicking off that weekend, we can think of no better time to place your first bet on the team you’ve always pulled for! With sports books opening at various casinos across the Mississippi Gulf Coast throughout August, you’ll be blown away by the first-class sports gaming amenities that you can’t even find at some Las Vegas casino resorts!

On one of the most fun weekends of the year, you should make sure you treat yourself to all the fabulous cuisine the Mississippi Gulf Coast offers. Whether you’re looking for fine dining, farm-to-table, seafood, steaks, BBQ, beignets, burgers or all of the above, our website is a great resource for finding the perfect restaurant to suit your needs. You can even plug in your location to see what’s nearest to you!


Shopping and Golf

We can all agree that the main reason we go on vacation is to relax. Once you've gone to see the islands and have eaten all the great local grub you can handle, why not take advantage of some of the finest golf courses and shopping opportunities in the state while visiting? After all, Golf Digest says that five of the best courses in the state are right here on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, and the galleries, boutiques and outlets are all just as impressive!
