We are joining some friends from Texas the second weekend of July. They are renting a beach house for themselves and their son and his girlfriend. Unfortunately, no room for us, as this is a last-minute trip. So, we are looking for a decent motel (would like a pool but not totally necessary since we'll be at the beach most of the time). And would love to know where the locals go for eating - seafood naturally but any local flavor would be great. We understand that there is a Farmers Market the 2nd weekend of each month so we are excited about that. Any tips or suggestions are greatly appreciate. Can't wait to get there! Thanks!

My husband & I ate at The Wharf, in 1992, during a return home mission trip to hurricane Andrew. We have often talk about this night and how much we enjoyed the atmosphere there. We were wondering if The Wharf was still opened, since we heard casinos were down Under The Hill now. So I guess my question is this, Are you opened. We are planning a trip to that area for our 35th wedding anniversary. Just wondering, Lloyd & Brenda Watkins
Hello, We are trying to match a midpoint trip between Houston-Atlanta (closer to Atlanta though), and since only MS and AL are teh two states, we are looking for destinations to go to. The month is February hence we do not want to be really cold, but Casino's and Museums are not our interest. I came across some interesting activities for camping in a cabin in Mississippi, but the ideal time is not February. Just hoping to get some suggestions on possible activities around the area. Fun destinations around alabama , if any would also help. age group(25-30) about 5 people travelling. Thanks, Kiran

Hi Does anyone know if there is an indoor pool at the Heartbreak Hotel, or is it outside? We are only spending two nights there - we will be arriving late on Christmas Eve and will probably just crash out that night after a long flight, then we will be there for Christmas Day and night, before moving off. Is it really very bad in this area, and what, apart from the normal things, should we do to keep safe?

We are considering moving to Ocean Springs. We are concerned about the amount of rainfall. We have lived in Florida where the amount of rain is comparable but there it rains in tremendous storms then clears off for the day. We live in Kentucky now where there is less rain but it is slow dreary drizzly rain that goes on for days without alot of accumulation. How would you describe it in Ocean Springs. So basicallly we would like to know if it sunny or dreary. How are the winters?
I would like to see pictures of the inside of the saloon,because I am interested in visiting the saloon for a vacation?
Having never been to Mississippi can anyone recommend any scenic drives in the northern part of the state? We'll be in Memphis for a couple days the last week of April so it's fairly close. Any drives or gardens with spring flowers blooming would be great! Thanks
