Gulfport is the second largest city in Mississippi after the state capital, Jackson. Step off the beaten path and head to Biloxi Bay Bridge and Maritime and Seafood Industry Museum.

There's much more to do: explore the engaging exhibits at Lynn Meadows Discovery Center, take in the waterfront at Biloxi Lighthouse Pier, don't miss a visit to Hurricane Katrina Memorial, and explore the different monuments and memorials at Old Biloxi Cemetery.
