What a great 4th of July on the beach in Mississippi. People were out having a ball in Hancock, Jackson and Harrison counties. The beaches in Waveland, Bay St. Louis, Pass Christian, Long Beach, Gulfport, Biloxi and Ocean Springs were packed with families having fun.
Many families visit the coast of Mississippi to get away from the hyper commercialism found in other beach destinations. It is amazing how the neighborhoods along the coast still offer such an affordable opportunity for coastal living.
Weekends like this remind us of how great living on and visiting the coast of Mississippi can be. Great friends from the coast and New Orleans roll in to share Barbeque, Crawfish and family. The weather is beautiful and music fills the air. The beaches are getting lots of welcome visitors. Have a safe and Happy Memorial Day Weekend. Visit one of the festivals on the coast! Bay Harbor Fest, St Clare Seafood Fest, Pass Christian Jazz.
