Most of Biloxi's tourist attractions are concentrated on or near water and national recognition of the city's name benefits the entire coast tourism industry. Long stretches of soft white sand and the sound of waves lapping against the shore beckon those seeking serenity and those searching for excitement. Stretch out on the beach and "soak up some rays" or enjoy the heart-racing excitement of a jet ski. Rent sailboats and paddleboats, wade fish, deep sea fish, or play volleyball. Enjoy coastal golf from one of over 20 public courses. For relaxation, take the self-guided walking tour of historic downtown where there are museums, art galleries, unique shops, historical sites, stately homes and charming architecture. For the history buff, visit Beauvior, the last home of Jefferson Davis. See 1880's life, marvel at civil war antiques and memorabilia, and enjoy a quiet moment in the gardens or the cemetery of Civil War veterans. At night Biloxi's "strip" comes alive with action with casino games of chance, live entertainment for dance the night away, and spectacular Las Vegas-style shows.

How to Become a
Travel Agent in
Biloxi

Overview

Introduction

As different as Biloxi and Gulfport are, it is impossible to separate them. Together they create a virtual playground for enjoying the beaches, exploring the fragile barrier islands that make up the Gulf Islands National Seashore, golfing on one of the many courses, fishing for mackerel or red snapper off the coast and dining at one of the many restaurants.

In Biloxi, you can take a sailing trip on the replica historic Biloxi schooners or see the fascinating variety of marine life that lies below the water's surface by enjoying the Biloxi Shrimping Trip. For the evening, you can catch a show at one of the casino-resorts, or choose from a large variety of dining options.

The growth of Biloxi and Gulfport as a thriving casino and tourism mecca was dealt a blow by the flooding and devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina in August 2005. Massive amounts of debris from the largest natural disaster in U.S. history were removed, and more than US$1 billion was invested to rebuild casinos alone.

Although most of the city's waterfront antebellum homes and other historic buildings did not survive Katrina, the natural beauty of the Coast remains, and efforts are ongoing to restore the remaining buildings. Although one of the aftereffects of the storm was a substantial drop in the city's population, the event also offered a rare chance for a new beginning—Biloxi has redeveloped in ways that promote pedestrian-friendly, walkable, mixed-use developments in the tradition of New Urbanism.

Must See or Do

Sights—The historic Biloxi Lighthouse; Casino Row and Beau Rivage; the seashell domes of St. Michael Church, which is being restored from Katrina damages; the massive, ancient live oaks at and near the historic landmark Mary Mahoney's Old French House Restaurant; the scenic Schooner Pier Complex just west of Grand Biloxi Casino; a drive along Highway 90 (Beach Boulevard).

Museums—The Walter Inglis Anderson Museum of Art in neighboring Ocean Springs; Beauvoir, the last home of Confederate President Jefferson Davis, now undergoing restoration.

Memorable Meals—Fettuccine Alfredo at Alberti's Italian Restaurant; bread pudding at Mary Mahoney's Old French House Restaurant; rosemary brandy shrimp at Jazzeppi's Ristorante & Martini Bar; eggplant la rosa and hot, crusty French bread at Vrazel's.

Late Night—Shadow dancing at Club IP in IP Hotel Casino; playing the slots at any of the town's 24-hour casinos; live music at Upstairs Downstairs in the Vieux Marche.

Walks—Winding your way through Old Biloxi on the Historical Walking Tour; beach walks along Mississippi Sound with scenic Deer Island a short distance offshore; strolling through public areas of local harbors to look at the assortment of watercraft, including commercial shrimp boats.

Especially for Kids—The Biloxi Shrimping Tour; splashing into the Mississippi Sound or flying a kite along the sand beach; Lynn Meadows Discovery Center, one of the top 50 children's museums in the country; Gulf Islands Water Park; Harrison County Skate Park.

Geography

Biloxi is built on a narrow east-west peninsula bordered on the south by the Mississippi Sound and on the north by the Back Bay of Biloxi. The Sound reaches to the barrier islands about 12 mi/19 km offshore that make up part of Gulf Islands National Seashore (http://www.nps.gov/guis), with the sparkling waters of the Gulf of Mexico south of the islands. The beach-hugging highway leads to the museums, shops and many of the area's main sights. Streetlights are numbered on the main roads, making locations easy to find.

The central part of town is made up of Vieux Marche (Old Market), the historic downtown shopping area where most buildings survived Hurricane Katrina. At the foot of the Interstate 110 bridge leading south from I-10 is the luxurious Beau Rivage Resort and Casino, which underwent complete renovation after Hurricane Katrina. A post-Katrina addition to the downtown waterfront is the Hard Rock Casino.

Some 2 mi/3 km farther east on Beach Boulevard (Highway 90) is Casino Row, the collective name for Grand Casino Biloxi, the Isle of Capri and Pascagoula native Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville Casino and Resort. This is on the easternmost tip of Biloxi in the neighborhood of Point Cadet.

There is more to Biloxi and Gulfport than Beach Boulevard, however, although many visitors don't venture far off that road. Take Oak Street, next to Grand Casino, north from Highway 90 to Bayview Avenue, which runs along Back Bay of Biloxi, and travel west past seafood processing plants and harbors for the shrimp-boat fleet. It will take you to the two Back Bay casino resorts, Boomtown and IP. The entire eastern portion of Biloxi went underwater with Hurricane Katrina, and although progress has been made, there are still many signs of Katrina's devastation, including large numbers of residents living in FEMA trailers while rebuilding their homes.

History

Biloxi was one of the earliest European settlements in what is now the U.S. In 1689, France sent Canadian-born Pierre LeMoyne, Sieur d'Iberville, to enforce an earlier claim to the Louisiana Territory made by Rene La Salle in 1682. Ship Island, 12 mi/19 km south of the mainland, offered a deepwater harbor from which d'Iberville launched his explorations. The French settlers arrived at Ship Island early in February 1699 and came ashore in Biloxi three days later.

The name "Biloxi" is a corruption of "Bilocchy," one of the first Native American tribes that the French encountered there. The tribe moved west of the Mississippi River in 1763 when France lost its American holdings at the close of the European Seven Years War (French & Indian Wars in America). During the remaining years of the colonial period, Biloxi pledged allegiance successively to the crowns of England (British West Florida, 1763-83), Spain (Spanish West Florida, 1783-1810), and to the Republic of West Florida (1810-11). The U.S. flag was first unfurled at Biloxi on 9 January 1811.

In the 1820s, Biloxi became a regular stop for the steamboat packet between New Orleans and Mobile, Alabama, and was set on its course toward an industry in tourism. The town became a favorite watering place for the wealthy of New Orleans and inland plantation owners.

On 9 January 1861, Mississippi became the second state to secede from the Union. The local Confederate attempt to hold Ship Island failed, and by April 1862, Ship Island was a Yankee stronghold with 18,000 troops and an armada of warships. Biloxi barely existed through the duration of the war as a no-man's land between New Orleans and Mobile.

Reconstruction in Biloxi was easier than in upper Mississippi, where the economy had been dependent on slave labor. In 1871, the new railroad connecting New Orleans and Mobile expanded tourism and sparked Biloxi's biggest industry, the exportation of seafood. By the early 1900s, Biloxi was calling itself the "Seafood Capitol of the World." During World War I, Biloxi continued its maritime tradition as shipyards supplied the federal government with deepwater, trans-Atlantic merchant schooners. During World War II, Biloxi's shipyards again supplied military watercraft.

On 17 August 1969, Hurricane Camille's Category 5 winds, in excess of 200 mph/322 kph, brought Biloxi to its knees. Then, on 29 August 2005, the Gulf Coast was hit by Katrina, the worst natural disaster in U.S. history. Although wind speeds (145 mph/233 kph) were lower than Camille's, the slower-moving Katrina was much larger in diameter and carried a 30-ft/9-m tidal surge.

Katrina dealt a blow to the Gulf Coast that shocked the world. The storm took 53 lives in Biloxi alone, and reduced many neighborhoods and much of the city's historic architecture to rubble. But Katrina could not destroy Biloxi's unique history and culture, or the spirit of its people. As they had done many other times since the first recorded hurricane in 1720, Biloxians rolled up their sleeves and began rebuilding.

Potpourri

Biloxi has a sizable population of Vietnamese-Americans, many of whom had seafaring traditions in their native country before immigrating to the U.S. An estimated 2,000 Vietnamese-Americans live in East Biloxi, about 20% of its population, and many work in the seafood and casino industries.

Mississippi casinos are the third largest in terms of gaming revenues in the country after Nevada and Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Early in his career, Elvis Presley often played at nightclubs on the Gulf Coast, and he learned to water ski there. There are many Elvis stories from the Coast.

Biloxi's celebrations of the Mardi Gras season in February include numerous parades and elegant Mardi Gras balls. Locals boast that their parades are less crowded, safer and have better "throws," such as beads, than those in New Orleans.

Hurricane Katrina's 26-ft/8-m storm surge lifted up the huge, multistory casinos-on-barges and tossed them like toy boats across Highway 90. After the hurricane, the Mississippi Legislature acted quickly to allow the casinos to become land-based.
