Biloxi sits on a 26-mile stretch of man-made beach on Mississippi's Gulf Coast.
The area has a rich history as one of the oldest cities in the U.S., being first settled by the French in 1699 and subsequently enduring numerous governments by the Spanish, English, and Confederate, to name a few. The area was previously home to the Biloxi Indians, and evidence of their civilization has been found and preserved in this charming southern city.

Biloxi Casinos

Biloxi now benefits from an increasing number of tourist dollars coming into the area through its many gambling and casino attractions. There is a host of hotels and motels that offer these popular tourist activities both on-premises and nearby. Much information about these accommodations can be acquired online at many reputable travel websites.

Since shrimping is a major part of Biloxi's history and culture, there are several annual events in and around the city that pay tribute to this colorful tradition. It's a good idea to check out when these festivals are scheduled before planning a trip to Biloxi, especially for those who love seafood. The Blessing of the Shrimp Fleet in which shrimp boats line up to be "blessed" before heading out to sea for shrimp season, is one of the more popular events and takes place in May.

There are also several other attractive beach communities near Biloxi, which often host their own seafood festivals and culinary festivals. Ocean Springs, Gulfport, Pass Christian, Bay St. Louis, and Long Beach are just a few of the towns near Biloxi, and they all have their own hotels and motels to choose from. Antique and other shopping possibilities abound on Mississippi's Gulf Coast as well, not to mention exquisite restaurants offering Cajun delights.
