Next up on our cross country road trip was Mississippi (state number 2 of the 50 states). Naturally, we headed over to Biloxi, which is the closest gambling destination to Atlanta. A lot of our friends talked about their road trips here to hit up the casinos when they couldn’t make it all the way out to Vegas. Neither of us gamble much, but we couldn’t resist leaving at least a couple dollars in the slots. When in Biloxi, right?

11 Best Things to Do in Biloxi MS
1. Beau Rivage Resort & Casino
Try your luck at this riverfront hotel and casino. It also happens to have a nice view of the gulf if that’s more your speed.
Go on a real shrimping expedition out of the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
1. HAVE MISSISSIPPI MUD PIE
Art museum with ceramic works of George E. Ohr.
We made a quick pitstop for Mississippi mud pie at Palace Bakery in Biloxi. Yelp failed us for the first time, so do yourself a favor and don’t eat there. Eater says Mary Mahoney’s Old French House is where it’s at! Learn more all about the dessert and where else to eat it here. We need to go back and redeem this dessert.
Has anyone tried other places where you think has the best Mississippi mud pie?
