Best Times to Visit Biloxi

The best time to visit Biloxi is from November to April, when the city's room rates are cheaper and the weather cools off. The city's peak tourist season – May to mid-August – sees highs in just about everything: average temperatures peak around 90 degrees, humidity levels climb to about 90 percent and hotels jack up prices to profit off of burgeoning crowds. The city becomes a ghost town starting in late August and continuing into the shoulder months of September and October, when hurricane season can wreak havoc on the city.

May-mid-August

May to mid-August is the most popular time to visit, but high humidity levels and average temperatures in the high 80s make the peak season unbearable to some.

 Key Events:

Late August-October

The shoulder months see fewer tourists, but hotel prices hover around peak season prices. Summer-like temperatures linger in the high 70s and mid-80s. So why the drop in crowds? Historically, the city sees the worst of Atlantic hurricane season this time of year, so it's best to keep your eye on the weather report 

Key Events:

November-April

Hurricane season is over, humidity levels plummet, hotels drop their rates and the peak season crowds have gone; what's not to love about Biloxi's offseason? The locals complain about cooler temperatures – from the mid-40s to the mid-60s – so plan to pack layers.
