Biloxi's casinos draw gamblers far and wide – and they're a big part of the city's tourism and history. Many of the area's casinos are connected to megaresorts that bring in millions of dollars for the city, and they have certainly seen some changes (and improvements) over the years. All of the city's casinos were originally floating gaming spots: They were required by Mississippi law to be built on barges separate from the land communities (in an attempt to isolate gaming activity from the general public). But when Hurricane Katrina hit in 2005 all the casinos were either severely damaged or completely destroyed. A new law allowed the casinos to be rebuilt on land and hoteliers invested in the construction of new or refurbished casinos.

Some of the most popular gaming spots in Biloxi include the Beau Rivage Resort & Casino, the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Biloxi, IP Casino Resort Spa, Harrah's Gulf Coast and Treasure Bay Casino and Hotel. These properties are not only home to casinos but also offer accommodations and amenities like spas, fitness centers and pools. Beau Rivage also boasts a theater that receives rave reviews and has featured acts like Jay Leno, ZZ Top and Martina McBride. When it comes to gambling, the casinos host everything from table games, roulette and slots to poker rooms and high-stakes card lounges.

Harrah's and Treasure Bay earn praise from previous visitors thanks to their games' low buy-ins and the friendly demeanors of the staff waitresses and dealers. The Beau Rivage, Hard Rock and IP casinos are described as being a little more upscale (and more expensive) and exceptionally clean, plus travelers say the dining options here are not only varied but all very tasty.

You'll find Treasure Bay, Harrah's, Hard Rock and Beau Rivage on the southern side of Biloxi, along the Gulf Coast, and the IP Casino Resort Spa on the northern side of Biloxi, overlooking Biloxi Bay. Each casino offers different restaurants, gaming options and amenities. For more information, visit the individual properties' websites or see the city of Biloxi's listing of casinos on its website.

#1 Biloxi Lighthouse

One of the first cast-iron lighthouses built in the South, the Biloxi Lighthouse is one of the city's most revered landmarks. Erected in 1848, it was operated by local Biloxians – including a handful of female lightkeepers – until 1939 when the U.S. Coast Guard adopted the post. Today, the lighthouse has survived the shoreline's devastation by many a hurricane (Hurricane Katrina's storm surge waters covered a third of the 64-foot-tall lighthouse) and stands as a symbol of the city's resolve.

Recent visitors loved this historic lighthouse, noting its beauty and praising the views of the Gulf Coast from above. And while some said the structure itself is on the small side, travelers said taking the tour is worth it as the guides offer more information on the lighthouse's purpose, history and resilience through the years.
