My daughter, Rhiannon, had a dance competition in Biloxi(“buh-luh-ksee” not “bi-lox-see”) so we turned it into a road trip and stayed in a nearby town the whole weekend. We even got to take my granddaughter, Kali, with us. She’d never been to the beach so I thought she’d enjoy it. The beaches there are beautiful and clean. They aren’t nearly as crowded as the ones in Florida. The only thing is that since the Mississippi and Pearl Rivers empty into our gulf, the water isn’t a pretty green. It’s not quite as dark as river water, but not clear like the rest of the coast. I don’t care to get into the water anyway, so I just stay on the beach.
There are many casinos close to the beach. I think at one time they had to be on the water, but after Hurricane Katrina, they are allowed to build them so far from the beach. I think that’s why the beaches look so clean now because the casinos aren’t right on the water. There’s also plenty of places to dine. If you like seafood, you’re in luck. Most everywhere on the coast serves seafood. In fact, it would be difficult to find one that doesn’t. And if you go, don’t forget to visit the Biloxi visitor center. It’s beautiful and admission is free. If you’re looking for a nice quiet vacation destination or a quick road trip, then plan a visit to Biloxi. It’s one of my favorite places.

The Broadwater Resort and President Casino were located here but were destroyed by Hurricane Katrina in 2005. If you are interested in the history of the resort and casino, check out this link https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/President_Casino_Broadwater_Resort.
