Martin Lake Resort
Located just outside of Biloxi, in an area with lots of stately pine trees and majestic oaks, Martin Lake Resort is a 65-acre resort with a 22-acre lake. This resort, with limestone sites, overlooks a crystal clear spring-fed lake which is excellent for fishing and swimming. You’ll experience beautiful weather year-round at the resort and be in the perfect location for all the area attractions, including casinos. Biloxi, with its Old World charm and a mild climate, is a delightful city to visit. Antebellum homes and time-worn stucco cottages, framed by massive oaks draped in moss, can be seen in the older parts of the city. History “buffs” will enjoy the Beauvoir-Jefferson Davis Shrine in Biloxi, the historic last home of Jefferson Davis, the only president of the Confederate States of America. The fully restored 1853 house and pavilions contain furnishings that are mostly original Davis pieces. A cemetery where 700 Confederate soldiers <br /> are buried, and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier of the Confederate States of America, are also on the picturesque grounds.

More Info The Mississippi Gulf Coast, with its 26 miles of sugar white beaches, has extensive shrimp and oyster areas. Nearly half the oysters and a fourth of the shrimp canned in the U.S. come from this region. Along with fresh seafood, the area has 18 scenic golf courses, amusement parks, Marine Life Oceanarium, water slides, ship island excursions, deep sea charter fishing, and 24-hour casino gaming. The Gulf Islands National Seashore stretches 150 miles from Fort Walton, Florida to Gulfport and covers 135,000 acres. In the Mississippi section, there are three long, narrow barrier islands: Ship, Horn and Petit Bois, that lie about 10 miles offshore. The forces of wind and wave that created the islands are moving them westward each year. They contain dunes, extensive marsh areas with lagoons, and inland vegetation. Horn Island and Petit Bois Island are wildlife sanctuaries. Horn Island can be reached by private or licensed charter boat.
