paraphrased from Coastal Mississippi
A city with a long tradition of relaxation
One of the prettiest of the Mississippi Gulf Coast’s elegant string of cities and towns nick-named the Pass, incorporated in 1848 with a rich history that dates back well before American independence.
the Pass had developed a reputation as a lovely summer getaway for those in New Orleans. It is a short trip (approx. a 1 hour drive) it’s almost dereliction of duty not to make the quick drive out to this beautiful beach town for an escape. There’s plenty to see and do—but there’s also plenty of nothing to be done, for those who truly need a refreshing, rejuvenating session of intensive beach-side relaxation.
