Day 1 - Friday, December 15 - Biloxi, MS – This morning, we depart Zachary and make our way through Baton Rouge, and Denham Springs.
We’ll stop in Ocean Springs, Mississippi for a few hours of exploring. Known as the “creative heart” of the Gulf Coast, with enough galleries and museums to delight any art aficionado, you’ll find food, shopping and natural coastal beauty. After lunch, we will continue on to Bellingrath, arriving this afternoon.
Explore the rose gardens and greenhouse filled with gorgeous poinsettias for the holiday season on your way to the Bellingrath home tour. The 15-room, 10,500-square-foot home was built in 1935 with flagstone terraces, a slate roof, central courtyard and more, all decorated for Christmas. Make your way back to the main building for an included dinner. After dinner, take a casual stroll back out to the more than 15 Christmas displays featuring more than 3 million lights in a beautiful array of holiday cheer.
This evening we’ll travel back to Biloxi where we'll stay overnight on the Mississippi Coast. (D)

After lunch, we’ll attend Beau Rivage’s annual Christmas show (subject to change), which offers a holiday spectacular through classic holiday songs and modern favorites performed by world-class singers and high-kicking, Rockette-style dancers.
