This Coast city made another ‘best of list’ — this time from a major media outlet


National recognition continues to pour in for one Mississippi Gulf Coast City.

CNN is the latest national media outlet to give accolades to Gulfport by listing it on the “15 charming cities in the American South you may have overlooked.”

Gulfport made the cut at No. 10. The list was released Friday.

“The eyes of the world continue to shine on Gulfport and the Mississippi Gulf Coast,” said Gulfport public information officer Chris Vignes. “They are finding out what we’ve known for a long time — that the Coast is a great place to live and raise a family.”

Each city on the list was given three categories of where to eat, stay and play. Gulfport amenities listed in the article include Pop Brothers, Fishbone Alley and Ship Island.

Gulfport was recently featured in several publications including Vogue and Southern Living.
