March 2013 in Biloxi-what to do

My husband and I have made plans (through our timeshare) to stay in Biloxi mid March for a week in 2013. We have never been to MS. I know that there are lots of casino's there which my husband will enjoy more than I will. I have no problem with him going...I am just not much of a gambler. We will be by ourselves on this trip as we will be "empty nesters" as of Nov. 2012 when our last child is leaving home. We enjoy the ocean, but are not sure how nice the MS. coast is in Biloxi. Will we be bored? We are open to suggestions on things to do and places to see. We are not really big into eating out. This trip is mainly to go somewhere we have never gone before and to enjoy our time alone. We are coming from Kansas and will likely fly due to the distance and possible bad weather between Kansas and MS in March.

If you're going to be there on March 17th, St. Patrick's Day, you're in luck. There are numerous parades and lots of throws! It's kind of like the Mardi Gras parades but the trinkets that are thrown to the crowds are inspired by St. Patrick's day. If you like to shop there's loads of good shopping both outlets and boutiques. The beach is beautiful, clean, white sand and hopefully you will experience some nice beach days.

Here is a web site to help you.

When you arrive, go to the visitors center which is located on Beach Blvd. across from the lighthouse. You'll see a movie about Biloxi and can pick up brochures for things to do. There's lots to do so I don't think you will be bored. I am curious about your timeshare. Can you let me know where it is, what the name of place you will staying in?

Thank you for your information. We will be arriving on St. Patricks day so it sounds like we can participate in all the St. Patricks day festivities. We are used to the beaches of Florida. I have seen some pictures of the beach in Biloxi and the water looks muddy and the sand looks brown so I was surprised to read that they are nicer than I thought. Here is a link to the timeshare we are staying at.

We own down in Branson Missouri and are doing an internal trade to Biloxi. I think this is a recent property that they bought and are converting it into 2 bedroom timeshare units. The properties they own in Branson are very nice and we always enjoy our visits there so we are hoping we will like the property in Biloxi as much. If you think of anything else please let me know, or if you need any timeshare questions answered I will help you if I can. we have owned for 16 years and really enjoy our vacations.
