WLOX, 5/29/7

Memorial Day weekend is the first big holiday of the year for summer tourism. Here on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, Katrina damaged or destroyed many of our major tourists attractions like Beauvoir, the J.L Scott Aquarium, and Marine Life.

Anyone who drove along the beach this weekend in Biloxi, probably noticed the many “No Vacancy” signs at hotels, so business seemed to be good. Many of the tourists said despite the devastation, the coast is still a great destination.
