Ocean Springs, Mississippi
'In laid-back Ocean Springs, your toughest task will be deciding between a paddle board yoga class with PaddlesUp or a swamp tour with the Eco-Tours of South Mississippi in nearby Gautier (do both). Also worth a slot on your unchaperoned cal is a cooking class at The Mary C. O’Keefe Cultural Center. Dock yourself at the Inn at Ocean Springs which puts restaurants, galleries, and shopping a stone's throw away. On a budget?
