Read “Mississippi Gulf Coast surges back,” a feature in USA Today's travel section for Friday, with a subhead, “The sandy stretch from Biloxi to Gulfport rebounds from Katrina.”
Reporter Kitty Bean Yancey writes about the Beau Rivage, Hard Rock and Island View casinos, and there is a photo I took at Island View. She also highlights Beauvoir, barbecue at the Shed, the beaches and Emeril's Gulf Coast Fish House.
Never miss a local story.
Yancey brought up “the redneck Riviera” and Katrina's devastation, but also said of the Coast, “Though it hasn't fully recovered, it's still ticking – and battling to win visitors with rebuilt casino hotels and restaurants that tickle a wider variety of palates.”
