L & N Historic Train Depot

The beautiful Bay St. Louis train depot, built in 1928, houses the visitors center, where visitors can get information about businesses and attractions in the Bay St. Louis area, the Mardi Gras Museum, featuring beautiful Mardi Gras costumes and the Alice Moseley Folk Art and Antique Museum. The depot itself is set in a park like setting featuring many Live Oak trees, picnic tables, benches, and a walking path. Duck food can be purchased in the visitor center and many ducks and geese are waiting to be fed at the duck pond on the depot grounds. There is a lot to do and enjoy at the depot and to learn the history of this building and of the difficulties experienced in earlier times maintaining a railroad across the nearby Honey Island Swamp. The Alice Moseley Museum is an entertainment venue as much as it is a Museum and visitors to see Miss Alice usually leave the Museum with a smile on their face and a love of Alice Moseley in their hearts.

Others have mentioned the Carter Church Mardi Gras costumes on display and the Alice Mosley folk art upstairs. Seems like the reviews for this and the Alice Mosley Folk Art & Museum ought to be combined since they're in the same building. Be sure to look through the before and after Katrina pictures in the album kept downstairs. Nice staff in both museum areas.

Turtle Skin Cemetery

Reviewed By Chipperhigh2 - Okemos, Michigan

Turtle Skin Cemetery was in the town of Santa Rosa that is no more. In 1961 the residence were move out as well as the businesses so that NASA could test engines for the Apollo Space Program at the Stennis Space Center. All that is left of Santa Rosa is the old Turtle Creek Cemetery and the historical marker that tells the story.

We stayed for a week in January great rates and you are close to shopping, resturants, and the Silver Slipper Casino.They have a play ground for the kids and water park. You can camp next to the gulf with electric and water but no sewer hookup. In season they have a camp store, game room, and wading pool.

Pass Christian Olive Oils and Vinegars

Reviewed By vickibme1960 - Lafayette, Louisiana

I am not a vinaigrette type person...normally I wouldn't eat a salad unless it was topped with Ranch dressing. My world has been altered! This shop is soooo cool! That are many urns of oil with these really cool spickets. They have small cups for you to taste all the oils. Amazingly, I can tell you I am a changed woman! We bought fig vinergrette, lemon oil, dill oil, strawberry....soo sooo many to choose from. The small bottles are 6.00 each. You tell them the ones you want and they bottle it up for you. They have other things too. We bought some flavored salts but haven't used them yet.

Diamondhead Country Club

Reviewed By Theresa P

I would love to say that the Country Club was a great place to eat. I mostly went there for breakfast on Saturday. If there isn't a buffet don't go. The service is not great and the food is disappointing. Powdered eggs should NEVER be serviced in a real restaurant.

Alice Moseley Folk Art and Antique Museum

Alice Moseley loved this depot and loved all the beautiful Live Oak trees that surround it and she would have been delighted that her beautiful folk art and her son's antiques have such a wonderful home. The Museum contains over 50 of Alice Moseley's original paintings and Tim Moseley's lifetime collection of art pottery, majolica, glass and primitive furniture. Playing at all times in the Museum is Alice Moseley on her DVD telling her stories and displaying for our visitors the unique and funny and talented person that she was. The Alice Moseley Museum is a Museum, but it is also an entertainment venue. Come to the Alice Moseley Museum and you will leave with a smile on your face and a love of an old lady whose favorite saying was, "Your reach should always exceed your grasp." She is still reaching out to you. Come see her Museum while you are in Bay St. Louis. Admission free. Museum Curator Geri Bleau will show you around.

Broke Spoke

Reviewed By tinydiny - Mississippi

I was surprised to see all the bras hanging from the ceiling but thought it might be typical of a biker bar so I took a good look around and high tailed it out of there. This is a rustic, rough looking place and I did not tarry. Not the place for a lady.

I'm not a big fan of subdivision golf courses. But at The Oaks, they never really come into play. It's obvious they're spending some money on this course, because it's absolutely beautiful. The course is extremely spread out. I hate playing courses where the greens are 50 feet away from the next tee box. Not here. It's definitely a long course I do not want to walk. (of course, none of them are) Staff is very friendly and accommodating, as well as the club house. Can't wait to visit it again.

The Waveland Ground Zero Hurricane Museum

Reviewed By Hoosierfan_7 - IL

I saw this museum was something to do in Waveland. The 5 of us visited late morning on a Friday. There were 2 men and a lady volunteer working who were full of information of Katrina which destroyed Waveland and the surrounding area. Their knowledge and stories of their experiences before, during and after Katrina made for such a great visit to this museum. It is so emotional hearing their stories and being able to see through the exhibits what the people of this small community endured. The "can do" attitude of the local residents has built this community back to a great little place to live, work, and raise families. Don't miss seeing this museum when in the area. The small quit exhibit and the story about the lady who made all of them after Katrina was very interesting,
