The Hidden Beaches Road Trip That Will Show You Mississippi Like Never Before
In terms of great beaches, Mississippi is definitely not lacking. Not only does that state’s southern coast border the Gulf of Mexico, but coastal residents also have access to several barrier islands, which are perfect for beach-day getaways. However, just because these are the most popular, it doesn’t mean they’re the only beaches in the state. In fact, Mississippi is home to some pretty incredible hidden beaches that are perfect for cooling off during the hot days of summer – and that’s where this road trip comes in.
Spanning 698 miles, the entire trip will take just under 12.5 hours. Along the way, you’ll find some of the best hidden beaches in the Magnolia State, many of which include campgrounds, so you can easily extend the trip to suit your needs. (Click here to edit the map below.)
