there's nothing natural about those beaches. The coast as the longest stretch of man made beaches in the US.

Never been to the Mayflower but the Iron Horse is ok. I've heard the Parlour Market is pretty good but Dave's BBB across from the coliseum has great food for the price. Wagyu beef ribs and daily specials are good as well. The chef/owner also owns the Flora Butcher in Flora.

The barrier islands along the actual gulf are very beautiful beaches. The man-made beach along the tepid Mississippi Sound, not so much. My friends from the MS Gulf Coast always joked that "only tourists swam in the water"

Default Thanks

Thanks for the kind words about my home state. Disregard the negative comments from my fellow residents. Some people find it very hard to look passed the negatives and accept that not everyone shares their views/opinions of a place.

InnerCitySoul, thank you for looking past the negative stereotypes of Mississippi and coming to experience what we have to offer. It's too bad you didn't get to visit the Mississippi coast before Katrina. It had a charm of it's own with trees and grand old homes lining highway 90. Come back anytime, and if you need suggestions on things to do let us know.

Haven't been to BBBs but coworkers give it good reviews. I'm concerned its a little too high end for its location, mostly fast food in that area, maybe he is thinking legislators will support it? I drive by it every day and don't see many cars there.

The IH is extraordinarily average, but has a good atmosphere and does a good business (in spite of sometimes spotty service).

Anyone know the deal on Two Sisters? It seems like it has been closed for close to a year? Hopefully, someone will buy it and reopen.

Dave's BBB isn't high at all. Their most expensive dish is $17. Now there are a couple of dishes that are basically challenges to see who can complete them but those are novelties. The daily specials are $10 to $12. If anything kills that restaurant it will the location because lets face it. It's not in the safest place in the world.

Thanks jhadorn (and several others "up thread") for your kind words...much appreciated! I truly wish I could have witnessed the coast pre-Katrina...no doubt, it was even more spectacular and unique (I was shocked and saddened to learn that Biloxi alone lost over 4,000 homes that were once on the National Register. Sigh.)


I'll most definitely utilize the wealth of knowledge found on this forum for all future visits to your beautiful state. (Maybe Clarksdale for blues in either September or October!?)

Thanks again all...be well and stay soulful!

I'll be visiting Jackson next week (from Oklahoma) and very much look forward to seeing the city and surrounding area. I'm looking forward to some warmer temperatures as well, at least I hope so. I am enthralled with the history of the area and wish all of the good people of Jackson and Mississippi the very best this holiday season.
