Most Popular Area Attractions

Buccaneer State Park

Coastal Mississippi is a popular destination for travelers looking for aquatic adventures and fun at state parks. Found just inland of the Mississippi Sound, Waveland is a charming city and home of the Buccaneer State Park. What proves to be a popular summer destination, Buccaneer State Park seemingly bounces with activity, largely due in part to the Buccaneer Bay Waterpark. Head west along I-10 from Gulfport or Biloxi and check out Buccaneer State Park. 

Southern Mississippi is an ideal destination and nearly any time of the year – Buccaneer State Park is a large reason why. There's a playground to keep the kids occupied for a bit, and the Pirate's Alley Nature Trail is a nearly two-mile long hiking and walking trail, perfect for bird watching. Be sure to check out Jackson's Ridge Dick Golf course, an 18-hole course yielding almost perfect views of the Gulf of Mexico.

Gulfport Dragway

The Gulfport Dragway, is a 1/4 mile track founded in 1972, near Gulfport. Fans flock to this southern Mississippi track each week to watch the exciting 1/4 mile and 1/8 mile drag races. Bucket races are fun way to try out the track. Trucks, cars and motorcycles are allowed for Bucket Race competitions.

Races are held all year long, including Jet Funny Cars, Ford vs Chevy races, Battle Drags, King of the Hill and Nostalgic Hot Rod Classics. The track's annual Memorial Day Blowout Bike Show is a fun adult-style celebration with live entertainment and competitions. After a day at the races, enjoy a quiet and comfortable night's rest with Best Western hotels. Have fun at the races in Gulfport.

Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport

The Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport, originally named Gulfport Army Airfield, was established in 1942 by the United States Army Air Forces. It served as a training location for B-25 and B-29 crews for World War II. In 1953, a Combat Readiness Training Center was built on airport property, that is still used to train over 20,000 Air Guard and Reserve crew. The airport also began offering commercial flights in the 1950's. The airport's demand for air travel service continued through the years, allowing for continued capital improvements.

In 2005, the airport's expansion project suffered a set back, due to damage from Hurricane Katrina. The airport terminal re-opened in 2008, increasing passenger service from 1 million to 2.4 million passengers a year. The 1,700-acre airport offers service for the thriving Gulfport and Biloxi areas of Southern Mississippi, via its six commercial airlines. While visiting the Mississippi Gulf Coast, choose one of the local Best Western hotels, for an enjoyable night's rest.

Lynn Meadows Discovery Center

Discover a place where learning is fun, along the Southern Mississippi coast. Visit the Lynn Meadows Discovery Center, located in a 1915 Mississippi City Elementary School in Gulfport. The center encourages hands-on learning experiences that simulates the real world. Rose Alman and Carole Lynn Meadows established the center in 1991, in honor of Carole's daughter, Lynn Meadows.

After Hurricane Katrina hit the gulf coast of Mississippi in 2005, the center was standing, but needed many renovations. Throughout the years of refurbishing and repairs, the center included the addition of the WINGS Performing Arts and Education Center. Kids love playing in the many exhibits, including: "Kids Street", What It's Like To Be Me, The Super Colossal Climbing Sculpture and A Matter of Science. After a fun filled day at the center, check into the local Best Western hotel for a wonderful night's rest.

Pine Bayou Golf Course

Gulfport golfers visit the Pine Bayou Golf Course and enjoy the 18-hole regulation greens in southern Mississippi. The course was opened in 1980 and has been delighting golfers of all skill levels ever since.

The course features a driving range as well as indoor practice facility, so novice golfers can solidify their swing and perfect their putt. What’s more, guests are also treated to food and beverages available in the clubhouse on top of the PGA-approved, world-class golf course.

Roots Music Concert in the Courtyard

A free summer music festival, the Roots Music Concert in the Courtyard is an annual outdoor festivity with a focus on live music. The concert is set in the city of Pass Christian in southern Mississippi, just west of Gulfport and Biloxi, and right on the Gulf of Mexico.

Attendees are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and refreshments to Pass Christian City Courtyard for the Roots Music Concert series – headlining a different local and heritage-driven band each year. Make your way to Pass Christian in early June for the Roots Music Concert in the Courtyard, and check into the nearby Best Western hotel in Gulfport.
