How to Spend 48 Hours in Biloxi, Mississippi

A week ago I packed up and headed on girl’s trip down to Biloxi, Mississippi to celebrate my grandmother’s 77th birthday! It had been a long time since I had been to that area so I really wanted to explore it as much as I could. Ever since my trip to Miami, FL last year I have really enjoyed planning out the trips I take and really making the most of them. I started to get really detailed about it when we went on our honeymoon. I really enjoy reading about other’s trips so I really hope y’all enjoy reading about mine.

Day 1

The first day of the trip was mostly spent traveling. Once we did make it to Biloxi we went to our hotel to drop off our things then went to dinner. We randomly chose a restaurant named Tien to have dinner. The food and the service were amazing there. I took advantage of being close to the coast and ate a lot of seafood! For the rest of the evening, we spent a little bit of time in the casino and then enjoyed a nightcap. 

Day 2

Most of our activities were done on day 2 because it was the only day without travel. This day was also my grandmother’s birthday so we spent the day doing fun things with her. We started out the morning with breakfast at our hotel and then headed out to explore the town. Our first activity of the day was visiting the Walter Anderson Museum of Art. (This is technically in Ocean Spring, which is one town over.) I had done some research before and was so excited to see this place in person. This small museum is full of history and colorful artwork. The pictures below are just a small example of some of the artwork.

We then headed back into Biloxi and went to the Visitor’s Center, which is where the above picture of the lighthouse was taken. They have a small museum of the historic timeline of Biloxi within the visitor’s center. Across the street in the median is the Biloxi Lighthouse, which you can go into only between 9-9:30am everyday. Across from it is the Biloxi pier and the beach. We spent just a moment to take in the gulf and put our toes in the sand. 

Our last activity of the day was to visit the Ohr-O’Keefe Museum of Art. This was a very unique set up and architecture for a museum. They were in between exhibits at the moment so it wasn’t as exciting as a visit as the first museum we saw. I still recommend checking it out for the architecture alone. To end the night we had a birthday dinner at Cora’s at the White House Hotel. Everything about this place was perfect. The atmosphere, food, and service were all perfect. If you ever find yourself in Biloxi I would recommend eating and even staying there. We ended our night at the casino and I actually ended up winning a little!

Day 3

Our last morning we were slow to get up and headed to breakfast. We went to Le Cafe Beignet which is located in a renovated public library. The food was really good and the beignets were very similar to New Orleans! They are supposed to be opening a bar and dinner restaurant in the bottom part eventually. After that, we headed on our way home. Overall it was a great trip spending time with family and exploring a new place.
