Gulf Islands National Seashore, MS
Between the Alabama/Mississippi state line and Biloxi, I didn't find many reasons to stop the car. I avoided the interstate and stayed on US 90 the entire time, but there wasn't much to see. Any views of open water were mostly hidden from the road as I passed through Pascagoula (which probably has a more scenic area, but US 90 wasn't terribly thrilling). I did, however, detour at Ocean Springs, Mississippi, to check out Gulf Islands National Seashore.
The road through the park appears to be traveling through a dense forest, but the truth is, there are subdivisions just out of sight of the road. The park road heads south for about a mile, then eventually reaches the main attraction: a view of the Gulf.
Gulf Islands National Seashore would be great if you needed a picnic spot, or were planning an afternoon of fishing. But for me, it didn't offer much. There's a pier here...
... and some views of the marshland at the edge of the water, but that's about it.
Continue west on US 90 across Biloxi Bay, into Biloxi.
