Most people I’ve run into like to call it ‘The Secret Coast,’ because most people wouldn’t even know it’s here.

Coastal Mississippi is conveniently located between New Orleans and Alabama and features 62 miles of scenic shores, casinos, water-front hotels, restaurants, shopping and tons of family-friendly activities.

So, I am super excited to bring you the latest and greatest happenings for the entire family.
