Things To Do

Coastal Mississippi is the perfect destination, providing excitement and relaxation in equal measure along its 62 miles of scenic shoreline. With endless opportunities and open-ended experiences, you'll make memories full of adventure, leisure, and quite possibly the best BBQ shrimp you’ve had in your life.

Seeking inspiration? Head to one of our fascinating art museums. History buff? Seek out markers chronicling blues, country, and freedom trail histories as you make your way down the coast. Feeling adventurous? Paddle the day away along our blueways or book a charter to catch tonight's dinner. If leisure is the name of your game, purchase the perfect something at one of our boutique retailers, cash in at the casinos or hit the local juke joint to enjoy the live music scene. Go for a fairway drive at dawn (if you’re an early bird golfer) then retire to the beach at sunset. Kids in tow? There are endless options for family fun, from attractions to fun centers to nature tours (with real live alligators!).

With itineraries for every type of traveler and every type of budget, you’ll never run out of things to do along The Secret Coast.
