Dan and I were very excited to have Milton Segarra on the show with us from Coastal Mississippi.

We always give our guests the opportunity to explain why their destination is a good choice for families planning their family vacation. Milton highlighted the ability for families to be on the coast and yet also have the opportunity for world class food and lodging.

The Beau Rivage and the Hard Rock Hotel Biloxi are two examples of resorts you would find in Las Vegas. Interestingly, Milton brought up the fact that the majority of rooming in Biloxi was not of the Casino Resort variety. Interesting because gaming and Biloxi normally go hand in hand in the minds of travelers. Milton did mention that the large casinos have helped bring a lot of quality to the area in terms of room options.

The Mississippi Coast is so much more than Biloxi. This area offers 12 different beach communities with each offering something different. Gulfport, for instance, is about to see the opening of the Mississippi Aquarium (Opening August 29, 2020).

The area has prepared itself to accomodate travelers safely. It was exciting to see that the area has two big events that are still on the calendar for 2020. Obviously, both will be adjusted for proper social distancing, but it was good to see events on the schedule.

Crusin' the Coast (October 4-11, 2010)

Peter Anderson Festival (November 7-8) in Ocean Springs, MS

Obviously, conditions on the ground could change one or both of these festivals, so make sure and check the websites before you go!

Milton also mentioned the connection between the Mississippi Coast and going to the moon! Make sure and check that out.

Thanks, Milton!
