You'll never forget Biloxi, Mississippi. In addition to being located on the Gulf of Mexico, and all of the fun that entails, Biloxi is full of family friendly entertainment. Take the whole gang for a trip on the Sailfish and learn about shrimping. Or, go out on a sailing charter through North Star Sailing, or take a charter to the Gulf Islands National Seashore to check out Fort Massachusetts.1 And make sure to take everyone out to Scott Aquarium. Children and teenagers alike will enjoy watching sharks, eels, sea turtles, and other marine life. Your bunch can swim all year long at the indoor/outdoor Biloxi Natatorium. Fathers can take the kids on a chartered fishing trip with Mr. Champ. Just imagine when your son hooks that first big redfish or speckled trout. Then, when you're ready for some indoor entertainment, mothers are going to have a wonderful time taking the family to a live show at Center Stage, featuring dramas, musicals, comedies, and children's productions. Your whole family will love Biloxi.
