Along the white sand shores of the Gulf of Mexico is Gulfport, a lively area with beautiful turquoise water that becomes your playground while staying in an oceanfront vacation home. Watch the sunrise from your vacation rental's bedroom balcony, then find one of the many great nearby spots for swimming, fishing, sailing, and snorkeling. Throw out your line from your private dock, or meander around the banks of the gulf and search for the perfect fishing spot. With plenty of space inside your rental for storage, bring the clubs and enjoy one of Gulfport, Mississippi's beautiful golf courses. Play at a round at the Great Southern Golf Club, known for a 1908 railroad track that runs through the course before hole nine. At night, spend some time at the casinos in Biloxi, just minutes from Gulfport. This dining and gaming venue offers guests fast-paced fun and entertainment twenty-four hours a day.
Here are a few additional suggestions for your trip:
-Spend a day at the Lynn Meadows Discovery Museum: This unique children's museum offers guests the opportunity to take part in hands-on science and history activities. Voted one of the top fifty children's museums in the United States, this museum is home to exhibits that encourage children to think globally while having fun.
-Set sail on a Biloxi Shrimping Trip: Shrimp trip guides take guests on a real shrimping expedition through the Gulf.
-Go diving or snorkeling: The reef and wreck systems off the coast of Gulfport make excellent destinations for serious divers and are a great place to encounter native marine life.
-Visit a water park: Gulfport waterparks are fun and exciting places to cool off during a hot afternoon, especially if you're traveling with children.
-See the Gulfport Aquarium: If you'd like to meet beautiful fish, sea turtles and marine animals, be sure to explore the popular Gulfport Aquarium, a growing facility that draws many visitors to the area every year.
-Visit Magnolia Plantation: Gulfport, MS is home to the historic Magnolia Plantation Hotel. Come here to wander the rolling hills and streams of this 80 acre estate or play golf at the nearby Windance Country Club.
After a long day of Gulfport museums, art galleries, and shopping come home to your own private vacation rental. A condo rental overlooking the Gulf or a luxury rental home in downtown Gulfport can offer all of the amenities you need to host a barbeque or Cajun shrimp fry for your family and friends. Feel free to come to Gulfport any time of the year as beach condos and apartment rentals are widely available no matter what season you visit.
