Ocean Springs, a cottage community rich in cultural, is located on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. This historic town is filled with several miles of shopping, dining and entertainment surrounded by arts, beautiful landscaping, bayous and a walkable downtown district that you do not want to miss. With the Chamber of Commerce-Main Street-Tourism Bureau offices located in the heart of downtown, this community focuses on enhancing the local culture and preserving the quality of life.

We invite you to stop by the Ocean Springs Welcome Center located in the historic L&N Depot Plaza to find out all Ocean Springs has to offer. Meet our friendly staff and fill up on brochures, maps and more.

Take a glimpse of local art in the center, get a list of upcoming events and festivals happening in town, check for hotel availability and start your day on the Live Oaks Bicycle Route or walk along our beach front.

Find out where to SHOP. STAY. EAT. EXPLORE. Begin your adventure here!

Ocean Springs has plenty of adventures downtown, uptown, all around town.  From shops and restaurants in a walkable downtown entertainment district to chain stores, one of a kind businesses on Highway 90 or as we locals call it, Bienville Boulevard

In addition to the all around town tour guide, we invite you to stop by the Ocean Springs Welcome Center located in the historic L&N Depot Plaza and grab a WALKING MAP of Ocean Spring’s downtown Entertainment District.  The map shows you where to park your vehicle or bicycle, where you can find art, historic landmarks and more.
