Any discussion about the top coastal communities in Mississippi has to involve the town of Pascagoula. Brimming with natural beauty and tourist attractions, the place has quickly become a highly sought after tourist destination. Pointe-Krebs House, with its rough magnificence and an all encompassing vista of Krebs Lake definitely merits a visit. If you are looking to gain knowledge about the local flora and fauna, Pascagoula River Audubon Center is the perfect place. Later in the day, you can go to Downtown Pascagoula Shopping Plaza, where you will find historic landmarks and a wide array of gift shops.
