I enjoyed my visit to the Biloxi Lighthouse, you can park across the street and walk over. They only do tours for 45 minutes in the morning because it is cast iron and gets VERY hot. I loved learning about the history and got some...More

Located in the median (nuetral ground for us NOLA natives) this is a cute little lighthouse. You can park and play frogger across traffic to get pictures outside but its not open to go inside.

When we first saw the lighthouse, I thought it must be a replica or something because it’s so tiny compared to other lighthouses and it’s in the middle of the street! I’m not sure you can even go inside, but driving by or parking at...More

When you see this you know you have made it to Biloxi. Beautiful, especially with the sun behind it while you are enjoying the beach. Beautiful photos.

Terrific climb in the lighthouse. Inside was an exhibit of the water levels for several hurricanes - like Camille (1969) and Katrina (2005)

So much history to behold on this lighthouse. I highly recommend a visit to such an icon. It sits in the middle of the highway as not to be passed by without a glance of its beauty.

If you love lighthouses, the Biloxi Lighthouse is a sweetheart. If you want to go inside, you have to be there by 9am since it gets extremely hot inside with the heat of the day. It's well worth the climb up to the top.
