Description

They say what doesn't kill you makes you stronger, and nothing could be more true about Biloxi, Mississippi. Located on the Gulf Coast of Mississippi, Biloxi has been through its fair share of hard times. Like the cool new kid in school, everyone wanted a piece of this coastal beauty, from French explorers in the 1600s, to Spanish explorers in the 1700s, finally landing in American hands in the 1800s and becoming a part of the great state of Mississippi. One thing has remained the same, however. Biloxi is and has always been a haven for travelers needing an escape from bad weather, stress, or even boredom. While Biloxi is still rebuilding itself after Hurricane Katrina, this city has managed to emerge even stronger and more beautiful than before. Known for its beaches casinos, nightlife, and fresh-off-the-boat seafood, Biloxi continues to entice visitors who crave something with a bit more spice than they're used to.

The players club

Biloxi has a hometown feel with a surprising amount of activity dispersed in the city. They have done a great job rebuilding after hurricanes took out a significant portion of the area in 2005. Mostly known for their Gulf Coast views the many casinos there offer a refuge for players to engage, relax, and enjoy the views. This is a prime location to explore the multiple casinos, play some rounds of gulf, go for a swim, and do it ll again the next day. They have annual craw fish festivals and events that will cater to local cuisine. So if you are a foodie, visit Biloxi seasonally with the purpose of a good local food festival!

Because Biloxi is centered between military bases you will find a strong military presence with local bars and restaurants that cater to the population. It's a great location for veterans that like being near a base for travel options and enjoy a round or two on the blackjack table in their free time.

Neighboring the city of Gulfport you will be able to find entertainment, dining, and culture within this southern city. If you are a fan of small town vacations and love hitting the slots more then the city, Biloxi is the place to do just that! It is less expensive then a city vacation and can offer many of the relaxing amenities that you may find in a city like Palm Springs, without the desert heat or long flight. With gulf access you have options for a full array of water sports that can keep your family entertained for days.

If you located in the east and travel in the company of companions, this will be a prime place to get away for a nice vacation. Easy access to New Orleans and Florida shores as well. Bring your loose change and be ready for some good eatin'!
