On your next trip to Biloxi you should also consider employing our Biloxi car hire services as your main means of transportation through this Gulf Coast city. The city is well known for its beaches and casinos, as well as for being home to the Keesler Air Force Base.
Basically the only true method of reaching Biloxi is by road, because the closes major airport is the Gulfport-Biloxi Airport but you’ll need a car in order to get from there to the city and the next closest airport is the Mobile Regional Airport situated in Mobile, Alabama at about a forty-five minute drive from Biloxi, so either way you look at it, you’ll be getting there by car. Once there however, you can employ our Biloxi car rental services so that you can have a car at your disposal while on your trip.
Biloxi itself has a very colorful history; it and the area around it has changed hands several times between the French, British and Spanish, but this was before Mississippi gained statehood in 1817.
The city’s signature landmark is the Biloxi Lighthouse which is a pre-Civil War structure which is open to the public.
Another historic building that you can visit is the Beauvoir which is the last home of Jefferson Davis who was the president of the short lived Confederate States of America.
The city also has a history of withstanding many hurricanes, the hardest of which having been hurricane Katrina in 2005. Memorials reflect this history all around the city and “K-lines” or “blue lines” mark the height of the waves during Katrina.
Even though the place is known as one of the country’s top casino areas, its museum scene is something to visit as well, some of its museums having been designed by famous architects. One example would be the Frank Ghery designed Ohr-O’Keefe Museum of Art, which is dedicated to the ceramic works of George Edgar Ohr.
These are a couple examples of the things that you can see and do while in Biloxi so make sure to consider employing our Biloxi car hire services on your next trip there.
