Biloxi Lighthouse

Best Things to Do in Biloxi

Fun and games abound in Biloxi! With constant sunshine, you’ll find fun things to do and new places to discover with ease no matter what time of year.

So before you plan your visit to “Playground of the South,” here are the best things to do in Biloxi:

See the sites.

Just as gulf mariners have for the last 150 years, look for the Biloxi Lighthouse during your Biloxi vacay. A Mississippi Landmark, the lighthouse is beloved by MS residents, and is one of the most popular tourist attractions in southern Mississippi.

Just down the road, the Beauvoir estate is a must-see for visiting history buffs. Explore the estate, and be sure to check out the adjacent Jefferson Davis Presidential Library for even more intriguing Biloxi history.

Learn something new.

Jefferson Davis Presidential Library

A great daytime stop for fans of the arts, or simply those looking to take home some new knowledge, the Ohr-O’Keefe Museum of Art is home to massive collection of pottery and other works from famed Biloxi artists George Ohr and Annette O’Keefe.

When on the coast, it’s all about seafood and sailing. But before you chow down or hit the water, you’d be remiss not discovering the industry’s intriguing history at the Maritime Seafood Industry Museum.

Have fun downtown.

After the sun goes down, downtown Biloxi is the place to be. Brimming with eclectic restaurants, friendly bars, and local charm, visitors will plenty of ways to let loose and indulge.

Check out Burger-Burger for lunch, and be sure to hit local favorites like Venues, Voodoo Cantina, Zeppelin’s, or any of the bars and lounges near Howard Avenue in downtown for some grown up fun.

Catch a foul ball.

Mississippi may not feature a big league team, but that certainly doesn’t stop Biloxi sports fans from enjoying America’s pastime. Take in a ballgame at MGM Park this summer, home of the Biloxi Shuckers, Double-A affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers.

Fun under the sun.

Biloxi Beach

If you’re looking to enjoy the gulf coast’s vibrant beaches and cool waters, look no further than Ship Island. The island is just a short boat ride from Biloxi, and is home to miles of white, sandy beaches and sunshine, as well as the 1800s military base, Fort Massachusetts.

Back on the mainland, the sandy stretches of Biloxi Beach aren’t too shabby either, and they come conveniently set just minutes away from some of Biloxi’s best attractions, restaurants, and casinos. 

Game your game on.

Speaking of casinos, Biloxi isn’t called the “Playground of the South” for nothing. Take your pick from the collection of 24-hour casinos set along Beach Boulevard, including Beau Rivage, Hard Rock, Golden Nugget, and many more.

What’s more, each of the city’s casinos feature a variety of live entertainment, excellent dining, and unique nightlife as well, ensuring you’ll have the time of your life in Biloxi.
