Ocean Springs Mississippi brings out “Welcome Train” for coastal tourists!


We visited Ocean Springs this weekend for Memorial Day. The city was done up just right for a Coastal Southern Town. There were flowers blooming, kids playing, and the Sun was Warming. We really enjoyed our visit and got a few great pictures of the area. Did you know Ocean Springs has a cheese shop? They do! It is called Epicure Gourmet Cheese Shop in Ocean Springs. A great cheese shop is hard to find, so we will be back. There was an old fashioned candy store, an old drug store, and even a book store to stroll through. They pretty much had every kind of shop a person would want.

If you get a chance to drive Coastal90, hop into Ocean Springs Mississippi. I am sure they will be glad to see you!
