Waveland is a small Gulf-front town that takes pride in its people and traditions. Known as “The Hospitality City”, it’s the only community of the Gulf Coast which prohibits commercial buildings on its beachfront. Instead, you’ll find the Veteran’s Memorial Monument, honoring all veterans, and the adjacent Garfield Pier, frequented by residents and visitors alike for fishing, walking and enjoying a picnic.
One of Waveland’s many jewels is Buccaneer State Park, which encompasses 343 acres of beachfront property formerly owned by Andrew Jackson. The Park features a 4.5-acre waterpark, more than 300 campsites accommodating RVs and tents, 18-hole disc golf course and a 1.8-mile nature trail.
