Top 3 Family Friendly Activities
Making sure your kids aren’t bored during summer vacation can be tricky. So, it’s time to pack your bags and book your trip to Biloxi Beach Resort Rentals for a fun, family getaway! You won’t be disappointed by all that there is to do and see along the Mississippi Coast when you stay at our Gulfport vacation rentals.
Ideal for a family day, the coastal beaches around Biloxi and Gulfport are perfect for any age. As the location of Mississippi brings shallow and calm water, your children will love spending time frolicking in the sand or splashing in the warm, Gulf waters. Not a fan of the beach, no problem, Gulfport MS has fantastic splash pads for kids to cool off when the heat rises. Check out the Gaston Point Splash Pad or the Clay Boyd Spray Park in Ocean Springs. If you still want to be near the water but closer to your rental, our beautiful Gulfport vacation rentals offer outdoor and indoor pools, you can even take a look at our condos and plan your family’s summertime water fun.
Massive entertainment centers are another option to keep the kids busy this summer while on vacation to Mississippi. In Biloxi, you can experience the Big Play Entertainment Center or the Big Play Family Fun Center – both fantastic sites. At the Entertainment Center, you’ll get to experience luxury bowling and an extensive arcade with reloadable game cards. These cards can be utilized throughout the entire venue, where at the end of your visit, you’ll find a redemption store full of prizes and candy. Along with the games for kids, adults will enjoy the on-site restaurant and bar with delicious food and plenty of ice-cold adult beverages.
Similar to the Entertainment Center, the Family Fun Center offers another great location to take the kids too. Packed full of mini golf courses, bumper cars, and go-kart races, the kiddos won’t want to leave. Your children can also learn about the history of mining while discovering how to mine for their own rocks. Seasonally, your kids will love the adventure park with inflatable water slides while munching on yummy snowball cones.
Southern History Lessons
If you’re looking for informational and educational activities for kids, head right to the Biloxi Lighthouse! While many of Mississippi’s lighthouses were damaged during Hurricane Katrina, this one has been shining bright since 1848. It’s a signature photo opportunity for families as it’s one of Biloxi’s most iconic landmarks, plus it’s open for tours! You can ascend to the top of the 65-foot tall lighthouse, but it’s not for the faint of heart! We recommend that those wanting to take the tour can make the trek, as it’s quite strenuous.
Another great option for learning more about Mississippi History would be to take the Biloxi Tour Train! The “Shrimp Train,” as it’s sometimes referred to, is a fantastic narrated tour through the Historical District of Biloxi. With an open-air train, you’ll feel the cool breeze as you travel around town searching for historic architecture and local areas that bring out the rich history of Mississippi, especially Biloxi and the Gulf Coast.
Whether the weather gets warm and you need to spend time indoors, learn about the history of Mississippi’s coastal life, or enjoy your sunny days in the water, your family will enjoy every minute of their vacation to the South. No matter if you’re local and wanting a fun stay-cation or you’re traveling from far away, keeping the kids happy on a trip can seem like a task in itself. With these great options for children, your kiddos will want to keep coming back each year. Plus, our amazing Gulfport vacation rentals are perfect for families – large or small – couples, and groups of friends. We’re sure you’ll find something to fit everyone’s dream getaway. All you have to do is head our way to start enjoying your summer along the Gulf Coast!
