Day 1 - Laurel/Biloxi, MS – Early morning departure from Zachary and Baton Rouge. Once we arrive in Laurel, we’ll enjoy a brief downtown city tour, followed by free time for you to explore and eat lunch. Stop at the Laurel Mercantile for home décor or souvenirs.
Visit the Scotsman General Store and Ben’s Woodshop, grab a snack and watch the Scotsman team hard at work through a large glass wall. You might even get to see Ben building his next piece for HGTV’s Home Town. You can also enjoy walking through a wide array of antique stores and gift shops in town.
For lunch, you’ll have plenty of choices. Enjoy hearty southern cooking at The Pearl Diner, sandwiches and soup at Lee’s Coffee & Tea, or delicious crawfish po’boys and other Southern-inspired eats at Cafe La Fleur. Afterwards, enjoy a cupcake or one of their famous cinnamon rolls at Sweet Something’s Bakery.
This afternoon, we’ll say goodbye to Laurel and head to Beau Rivage Resort in Biloxi where you’ll enjoy dinner on your own and where we will overnight. This resort is one of the premier destinations on the Mississippi Gulf Coast and offers sweeping views of the Mississippi Sound, MGM Park and historic downtown Biloxi. Get into the Christmas spirit early as you enjoy the colorful and festive Christmas decorations filling the hotel lobbies and public areas.
Day 2 - Ocean Springs, MS/Home – This morning after a delicious included breakfast, we’ll leave the resort to head back home but on the way, we’ll stop for a few hours in Ocean Springs for more exploring. Known as the “creative heart” of the Gulf Coast, with enough galleries and museums to delight any art aficionado, you’ll also find food, shopping and natural coastal beauty. After lunch, we head back to Baton Rouge and Zachary.
