I grew up in the Gulf South. Jefferson Parish, just outside of New Orleans, was our home, but the entire Gulf Coast was our playground. My family camped in state parks and saw all of the goofy roadside attractions. Each year we took several long weekend trips to play on the beaches and to fish and crab in the Gulf of Mexico. Biloxi had a small town feel back then, but had everything we needed for an enjoyable vacation. When I married, work obligations meant that my husband and I didn’t have a lot of time off of work, so we spent our honeymoon in Biloxi, just a short drive from home.
I still love that part of the country. I’m contented with the life I have in Hawaii, but the Gulf South will always be “home.” Hurricane Katrina was devastating to me, not just because of my concerns for family
and friends, but because of the terrible destruction of so much that was dear to my heart and alive in my memory. It has been encouraging to watch the progress as the entire Gulf South faced the challenges and began to rebuild. The progress to date is nothing short of remarkable!
Biloxi, in particular, has made amazing progress. Biloxi Casinos
and hotels have reopened and the crowds are returning. Museums, festivals and other cultural attractions are back in business. As in my day, Biloxi is a wonderful playground for family or adult vacations. The link above will take you to reviews of casinos where you can stay, and links other information to help you plan your entire visit. The casino industry has been in the forefront of the economic recovery of the entire region. Your stay in a Biloxi casino will not only provide you with a wonderful vacation and great additions to the memory books, but will also help Biloxi and the Gulf Coast continue on the road to economic recovery.
