Favorite thing: Long Beach is one of the quieter towns along the Mississippi Coast, like Pass Christian, Waveland, and Bay St. Louis. As it is on a long part of the beach road it is less conjested. Although I frequent Waveland, Ms because it is a shorter drive, Long Beach is a favorite place. Bay St. Louis now has the casino so it gets a little more crowded, still the pace is slow and the older part of town is a good day trip for lunch and antiques.
Favorite thing: The best thing to do in Long Beach is relax. Take a long walk on the beach, visit the libaray, rent a video movie, and swim in the pool.
