Bay St Louis Bike Tour for biking around Old Town Bay St. Louis,Beach Bike Path and Waveland

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.
  • Then hit the other antique and shops on Main Street. Check out our Old Town Bay St. Louis Guide
  • Close out the day at Serious Breads. Oh my god do they have the best bread and cookies in Mississippi! I know because we work above the bakery. Smells good Everyday!

Great bike stop on Bay St Louis Bike tour.
Cypress Cafe has moved to the Old City Hall Building next to the City Park on South 2nd Street.

 

There is so much to see. I will also post a bike ride map shortly to show the points of interest that are great stops as well.
