Where’s the best place to vacation in Mississippi? You know

A Cosmopolitan magazine feature mentioned Fishbone Alley in Gulfport as a must-stop for a Gulf Coast vacation. The pedestrian walkway downtown opened Oct. 2 to much fanfare, including a ribbon cutting by Mayor Billy Hewes, center.

Cosmopolitan magazine’s website has named the Gulf Coast as Mississippi’s best vacation spot, but was there really any question?

Writer Perri O. Blumberg said she was specifically seeking spots for fun getaways with the girls. She picked a city in each state. The Coast apparently had too many good places to single one out.

She suggests visitors start out at Fishbone Alley, Gulfport’s new pedestrian walkway decorated with lights and art downtown, wind their way to The Greenhouse on Porter in Ocean Springs for yoga and stay at the historic White House Hotel on U.S. 90 in Biloxi.

So big rivals Gulfport and Biloxi both got a mention. Or should we say “former rivals”? Gulfport Mayor Billy Hewes started a One Coast campaign and he and Biloxi Mayor “FoFo” Gilich have seemed pretty chummy when spotted at public events.

Gulfport was all about promoting the Cosmo shoutout on its Facebook page.
