Nothing says summer like hitting the beach, and we love Mississippi’s Gulf Coast for their food, live music, unique accommodations… and their beach scene!

Most people leaving Atlanta for the beach thing of Panama City or Destin or Orange Beach…. but only a little further afar means a more affordable vacation and less crowded beaches! Plus, you can expect free parking along all 26-miles of beach, making it easy to explore.
