Outdoor Adventure & Nature

Gear up for the great outdoors: consistently warm weather and perpetually beautiful scenery means outdoor adventure is a year-round option for Gulf Coast explorers.

Whether you take an eco-tour or rent a kayak to paddle the bayou, here, you’ll be able to experience nature at its purest. Get up close and personal with hundreds of species of birds, animals and reptiles, including the endangered ones that call the Gulf Coast home. Plus, learn all about our wildlife at the Pascagoula River Audubon Center. Set up camp at a campground or state park. Hike or bike along our trails. Or just take it all in, gulfside. 

Coastal Mississippi has been designated as a National Heritage Area. Experience this place of land and water as you discover our history.

Go ahead and pack the binoculars and camera, nature is always ready for a photo op.
