Recreation & Attractions

The multicultural heritage of the Mississippi Gulf Coast is further showcased through the area attractions.  From St. Augustine's Grotto in Bay St. Louis, Fort Massachusetts 12 miles south of the Coastline, the Ohr-O'Keefe Museum of Art, to the Mississippi Blues and Country Music Trails, Mississippians celebrate their diverse cultural backgrounds.  There are museums that will inspire you, and natural and historical museums that will interest and educate you.

Sub-tropical climate and nature exploration is a year-round option for Cypress Creek Farm residents.  Nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts will find the temperate climate and natural activities second to none.  Exciting opportunities exist to get up close and personal views of hundreds of species of birds, animals, and reptiles, including several threatened and endangered species that call Mississippi home. Other options for exploring the coast are by bike and hiking.  View the wildlife on a number of unspoiled rivers and bayous, and experience nature at its most pristine.

With a wide variety of choices and experiences, from the hottest casino action to the natural solitude of the Mississippi backwoods, there are plenty of entertaining and exhilarating activities.  Here are just a few...
