As an adult, the Mississippi Gulf Coast is paradise. There are beautiful beaches, world-class fishing, fresh seafood and constant entertainment. You may not realize, however, that the Coast is also paradise for your kids. They can rocket off to space; zoom down waterslides; zipline through the oaks; cruise to the islands; and so much more. Check out this boatload of kid-friendly activities on the MS Gulf Coast!

Fishing is a fun kid-friendly activity on the MS Gulf Coast


Infinity Space Center

Blast off to space at the Infinity Space Center, the official visitors’ headquarters of NASA’s Stennis Space Center. Here, fun meets fascinating. Take a walk in the space boots of astronauts with live exhibits and demonstrations, bus tours, hikes and walks and simulator rides. Your kids will be in awe of the newest attraction, the rocket booster built for Apollo 19!


Escape At Margaritaville Resort

Biloxi’s Margaritaville Resort isn’t just for grownups! While you’re embodying the vibes of Jimmy Buffett, your kids will be in a world of adventure. At Escape, they can climb a 48-foot volcano rock wall, zip through the Sky Trail Ropes Course or ride on the nation’s first indoor cloud coaster. There’s also sports simulators, bowling and a massive arcade. Your kids will love it!


Ship Island Excursions

Ship Island was aptly named by French explorers who docked their boats there in 1699. It quickly became known as the Plymouth Rock of the MS Gulf Coast. It’s been featured in war stories ever since and its history lives on today with nearly daily ferry trips heading to its banks. Your kids will love this 50-minute ride to the island where they can catch a glimpse of dolphins swimming beside the ferry. Once on the island, there’s plenty of beachfront waiting for you and your family. Check out the weekly schedule here.


Gulf Islands Waterpark

Open May-September, this waterpark is a favorite of Gulf Coast kiddos. The park features miles and miles of slides with a theme pertaining to South Mississippi and the islands off of the Coast. With giant tube slides, the Coast’s only water coaster, dueling race course slides and more, there’s something for the entire family. Check out all of the fun-soaked attractions here.
