Visiting Southern Mississippi
A spring and summer visit to southern Mississippi can mean all sorts of outdoor adventures. Wooded wonderlands like DeSoto National Forest are ripe for exploration, and Hospitality State communities from Biloxi to Gulfport to McComb are eager to welcome visitors with countless special events, festivals, and family-friendly activities.
Spring and summer sunshine serve as an invitation to the Great Outdoors, and numerous prolific fishing holes and top-flight golf courses can be found throughout the area. To work on your swing near Gulfport, check out the PGA-approved Pine Bayou Golf Course. Nothing beats a day on the links with a balmy ocean breeze at your back.
Leave the little ones behind and join one of Mississippi’s top motorcycle gatherings, May 27th through 30th, when the Gulfport Dragway hosts the 2016 Mississippi Gulf Coast Memorial Day Blowout. The excitement includes street wars racing, slow racing, and motorcycle drag racing. There will also be plenty of live entertainment, music, demos, and displays to keep everyone entertained.
Thanks to attractions like Flint Creek Aquatic Park, Wiggins is an ideal getaway this time of year. A development of the Pat Harrison Waterway District in Pascagoula River Basin, Flint Creek offers picnic areas, fishing, swimming in the reservoir, and the Water Town Recreation Area. It's an especially fun destination for Fourth of July fun.
Mississippi may not lay claim to an MLB team of its own, but that doesn't mean residents and visitors can't enjoy a day at the ball park. The Biloxi Shuckers play at MGM Park all summer long. Check the schedule for special family nights and food-and-ticket combo packages and take part in America's Pastime in one of the most idyllic ball parks in the country – the 2016 MiLB season goes through the end of August.
