One Day in…Biloxi, USA

One Day in…Biloxi, USA

Traveler Profile: Ashleigh, 35, USA

Location: Biloxi, Mississippi

Time of Year: April

Travel Goals: Win money at the casino

I had never been to a casino when I decided to make the journey to Biloxi. I only chose Biloxi as the place I would go to for my first casino experience because of how close it is. I had one goal when my journey began: to win some money gambling! I didn’t have a strategy or knowledge to help with my goal, but I felt like luck was on my side.

As I arrived in Biloxi, I began taking in the sights and getting a feel for the city. I was also searching for where I might find the best breakfast. It took me only a little bit of time to pick where I would find breakfast. The Toasted Yolk was my choice, and I mainly liked it because there was no big crowd. Plus, I loved the name. 

I ordered the Golden Gate, a four-egg omelet stuffed with spinach, sautéed mushrooms, broccoli, tomatoes, and feta cheese. If I had only come for that omelet, I still would have called the trip an experience worth the journey. 

My Calculated Approach to Biloxi’s Casinos

Biloxi’s reputation for casinos was my main attraction, so I had planned this trip ahead of time by familiarizing myself with the many local casino options available. I had a comprehensive plan for minimizing my risk of loss. I picked three casinos; I didn’t know if I would end up visiting them all, but I wanted to have a plan B and C. 

Understanding that luck and preference would guide my choices; my plan was flexible. I’d feel the place out, play a few games, and see how the atmosphere felt. If I were losing or got a bad vibe, I’d be on to the next. The three casinos that made my list are Beau Rivage Resort & Casino, Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, and Golden Nugget Biloxi. 

Fellow Traveler Tip: Research the casinos in advance to find ones that match your gaming preferences and atmosphere.

First Time Trying My Luck

Beau Rivage was my first stop, and it was short-lived. After that, I went to the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, where I had better luck. I didn’t win big by any means, but I had fun and, by the end, hadn’t lost much. After an eventful morning in the casinos, I had to escape for a recharge.

Biloxi’s white sandy beaches provide the perfect setting to relax. Walking down the shoreline allowed me to enjoy the Gulf Coast’s beauty.  Feeling the warm sand beneath my feet and listening to the rhythmic waves had an almost hypnotic effect on me. 

Fellow Traveler Tip: Take a break from the gaming excitement and unwind on Biloxi’s serene beaches to balance your day.

Taste of Biloxi’s Gulf Coast Flavors

Biloxi’s restaurant scene showcased Gulf Coast flavors. I explored a local seafood spot for lunch, savoring every bite of my shrimp po’boy. The culture-rich and diverse food scene was a peak at the region’s culinary heritage.

After lunch, I ventured to the boardwalk lined with shops, entertainment venues, and vibrant street performers. The boardwalk had a lively atmosphere. I enjoyed some live music, browsed the local shops, and took in the sights of this city on the water.

As the sun set, I decided on a different finale to my day in Biloxi. I went out on a sailboat along the Gulf Coast. The cool coastal breeze and the calming sound of water against the boat were the perfect end to my day.

The Bottom Line

Biloxi invites you to roll the dice, savor coastal cuisine, and soak in the laid-back atmosphere along the Gulf Coast.  It offers a wide range of things to do, whether you were brought here by the gaming tables, the sandy shores, or the lively boardwalk.
