Great live music, a thriving arts community of painters and potters, a gorgeous oak-shaded downtown, and easy access to miles of Mississippi bayous and coastline make Ocean Springs an idyllic escape from the noise and bustle of New Orleans. You can wander the downtown streets, idling in the many art galleries, shops and restaurants, or you could head towards the open horizon on a deep-sea-fishing trip. In fact it might be worth extending your stay beyond a day-trip, in which case the boutique Inn at Ocean Springs offers characterful and exquisite accommodation in the heart of the city’s downtown.
