Thank you to Mississippi Gulf Coast for sponsoring this post.
School is out and the long lazy days of Summer are here. If your kids are anything like mine, they are already asking about a family vacation. I have a bucket list of vacations I would like to take my kids on before they leave home and the Mississippi Gulf Coast is on that list. Most of the vacations on my bucket list involve a beach since I don't get out of Utah very often. We had an especially cold and dreary winter this year, so Summer has been highly anticipated.
The Mississippi Gulf Coast can be an affordable family vacation with many family vacation deals to be found. Vacation packages are a great way to save money and take a lot of the stress out of planing. You can get a romance or casino package if you are going without kids or there is also golf, fishing, shopping, and water adventure.
•Show my kids fireflies. I'm not sure if there are many fireflies left after mosquito spraying, but I would be determined and find some to show my kids who have never seen these amazing insects.
•Hang out at the beach and build sandcastles, find seashells, read a book, and bask in the sun.
•Take the ferry to Ship Island and see Fort Massachusetts. I love historic buildings and places and this would be a great opportunity to teach my kids some history.
•Visit Old Town Bay Saint Louis and see the historic sites and buildings. I love just strolling through old towns and exploring the sites.
•Take the Pearl River Eco Tour. This tour gets amazing reviews online and people talk about seeing alligators, snakes, and other swamp creatures. My boys would love this!
•Hang out at the beach some more.
There really is something for everyone at the Mississippi Gulf Coast! Happy Summer everyone!
