QUESTION TO COASTAL90.COM My husband and I are going to be staying at my son’s in law camp we want to drive to Old Town Bay St. Louis. We have been there a couple of times and then ride r bicycles around could you please give us any advice like where to park at and some great bike riding areas to see.
thanks for any advice
Bay St. Louis Old Town is a great area to visit and bike. For parking I would park on Main Street or when open the Bay St. Louis Parking Garage. (It may be closed due to Construction) Bring plenty of Water because it can be warm especially during the summer months.
Once out I would ride the bikes around and hit a few local areas:
I would swing by the Depot District and Duck Pond first. This will get you about a 5 minute bike ride from Main Street. The Cypress Cafe is located there. The old train terminal and several other shops and business are located in this area as well.
Then I would head back up to the beach to check out the great bike path from Bay St. Louis to Waveland. (If you are adventurous you can take the trek to the Waveland Pier about 3 Miles down. Nice walk for $1.00 per person.)
Head back to Main Street and Visit the Sloppy Dog’s Cafe. This is a great little cafe serving gourmet hot dog’s in Bay St. Louis.
Check out the Hancock Historical Society located on Cue Street across from the Court House. Great history collection and nice museum of Hancock County.
We love doing restaurant reviews at Coastal90.com because of places like Red Hots. They are located on the corner of Highway 90 and Main Street in Bay St. Louis, MS. It is tucked away next to the Shell Station. Red Hots is a brand new restaurant, but Peter DeLeo, the owner & chef, is not new to the restaurant business. He is a veteran restaurant owner and particular about what he serves. He prides himself on his homemade ingredients!
We got to share this picture of the U-Boat model U-166 that was on display on Biloxi Beach. This is a model of the U Boat that was sunk either by a Coast Guard Plane flying out of Houma, LA or the Robert E. Lee's depth charges. The U-166 was found a few years back in about 5000 feet of water. U-Boats were common in the Gulf of Mexico during World War II. The model is very detailed and seems to be to scale.
A truck can be seen picking up the Rental Jet Skis on Biloxi Beach. It is just odd to see a big truck intentionally drive into the Gulf of Mexico. After seeing how well the loading works, we understand and applaud their choice. Neat to see if you are out on Biloxi Beach!
