Known as the City of Discovery by locals and visitors alike, this historic coastal town is the perfect place to relax and enjoy a whole host of experiences. A quaint, cottage Main Street community nestled amongst centuries-old live oaks on the scenic shore of Coastal Mississippi, Ocean Springs boasts a rich history, artistic flair, lush landscape and small town appeal.
Colorful and sophisticated, the community is known for its arts and festivals. It is home to the Ocean Springs Art Association representing more than 300 local artists, the largest fine arts festival in the state, Peter Anderson Arts & Crafts Festival presented by Blue Moon, the Walter Anderson Museum of Art, Shearwater Pottery and the Mary C O'Keefe Cultural Center of Arts & Education.
With over 200 independent shops, galleries, restaurants and nightlife, this community captures southern, small town charm with its walkability, white sand beaches, and year round activity.
Ocean Springs has three entertainment districts where patrons may leave restaurants and bars with “go-cups”.
