5 Day Biloxi Gulf Coast New Orleans
This morning we travel south through Tennessee, Georgia and Alabama on our way to Gulfport and Biloxi, Mississippi for a two night stay in one of the city’s Casino Resorts. Biloxi is located on a peninsula between the Biloxi Bay and the Mississippi Sound on the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. Biloxi is an Indian word that means “First People”. The French established the frst European settlement in the lower Mississippi Valley in 1699 across the bay at Old Biloxi. Old Biloxi is now known as Ocean Springs and the New Biloxi was founded in 1719. Since 1990, foating casinos have made Biloxi the center of a booming gambling district with thousands of new hotel rooms. Biloxi is no longer known as a beach resort although it has 26 miles of white sand beaches. Buffet dinner included this evening at the Resort.
