    Back Bay

    by Ewingjr98 Updated Jul 24, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Back Bay is a nice change from the hustle and bustle of the noisy casinos. Here you can boat, fish, or spot wildlife like turtles or even the occasional alligator. The Back Bay is under the flightpath at Keesler Air Force Base, so you can get an up-close and personal view of the C-130s landing over the water. Just keep an eye out for the barges if you are out in a little skiff.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The largest single employer in Biloxi, Keesler AFB is part of the AF's Air Education and Training Command and its primary mission is to train the Air Force's communications and information professionals. Opened in 1941, Keesler has long been known as the "Electronics Center of the Air Force." The 81st Training Wing calls this base home, and Keesler also hosts the "Hurricane Hunter" C-130s that study and track hurricanes.

    Things we used to do and will do again!

    by JGB Written Sep 7, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Biloxi was a quant fishing village until the casino industry emerged in the early 1990s, so until last Monday most people visiting Biloxi were going to one of the beautiful casinos. All that has changed now, but, once the mess is cleaned up, there will still be fun things to do here. Biloxi is located on the Mississippi Sound, most people assume the waters they see to our south is the Gulf of Mexico, but the Gulf starts about 8 miles out at the barrier islands ( a series of islands that run east to west, 6-12 miles off shore). Fishing and boating will always be a popular attracting. Most of the commercial and private boats fled to inland water ways and so are OK. The Walter Anderson Museum in Ocean Springs survived too, so make sure to check that out. We have lots of good restaurant, although I do not have a list yet. But we are known not only for our seafood, but for the interesting mix of influence in our food. We have a large French influence as we do Afro-American and Native American. Gumbo isn’t found only in New Orleans, you know! I am sure our Vietnamese restaurants and grocery stores will re-open too, that’s a must visit/see.
    Give us some time to clean up and re-build, but come see us when you can!

    FISHERMAN'S COTTAGE

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Lameuse Street was the main thoroughfare during the antebellum period, when most visitors arrived in Biloxi by water.
    FISHERMAN'S COTTAGE (c.1905) is a Creole cottage-type structure, typical of those built by Biloxi's fishermen around the turn-of-the-century. It has some of the most decorative woodwork of the city's historic structures.

    Jefferson Davis Presidential Library

    by MatthewMetcalfe Written Sep 2, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Yes, it really exists. A Presidential library for the President of the Confederate States of America. In the library there is a pretty good museum that chronicles the life of Jefferson Davis including many of his artifacts. Of particular interest is the caisson that carried his body.

    Also on the grounds are a house that he lived in after the war that also served as a home for former Confederate Soldiers in need. It is known as Beauvoir. There are also nice gardens on the grounds and a gift shop.

    The tomb of the unknown Confederate Soldier is located here as well (see photo).

    A little history in a town that is known for Gambling.

    Gambling was legalized in Biloxi in the early 1990's, and the building boom began.

    The following 9 tips are for each individual casino, beginning from the west end and moving east. The last three are 'back bay' casinos, not directly on the gulf.
