The Gulf Coast of Mississippi is popularly referred to as the Playground of the South. With all that Biloxi and the Gulf Coast have to offer, including a temperate year-round climate and 26 miles of white sandy beaches, there is no question about how the area earned its nickname. Recreational opportunities and adventures abound along the coast, ranging from skydiving to golfing, deep-sea fishing and dinner cruises. Gaming was legalized in Mississippi in 1990, allowing casinos to pop up all over the coast and become a large source of revenue for the area. Both Gulfport and Biloxi have many casinos to offer. The casinos have to be permanently moored on the water to meet state gambling laws that forbid casinos on land. The Maritime and Seafood Industry Museum in Biloxi is dedicated to outlining the effect that the industry has had on the area. The Marine Life Oceanarium in Gulfport offers a Dolphin Interaction Program that allows participants to touch, feed and interact with the resident dolphins.
