Destination guide

Pass Christian is fit for a president

The Southern town of Pass Christian hugs the coast on the Mississippi Sound and is named after the deep-water channel which crosses just off its shores. When the railroad came to town in the 19th century, the town quickly established itself as a holiday resort for winter vacationers and throughout the years it's seen several presidents, including Theodore Roosevelt and Harry S. Truman, grace its seaside shores. If you've scored a Pass Christian vacation rental, you'll be moments away from the 26-mile beach which extends all the way up to Gulfport and Biloxi and is famous for its colorful Mardi Gras parade.

Things to do

Fun for all the family in Pass Christian

Calling all train spotters. If you're staying in a Pass Christian vacation rental, you won't want to miss a visit to the Mississippi Coast Model Railroad Museum in neighboring Gulfport, which depicts 200 years of train history through mini scale models. Discover what railroads were like in WWII and the Vietnam War, as well as seeing a LEGO display created from over 1,000,000 blocks. If that doesn't keep the kids happy, try the Lynn Meadows Discovery Center, a hands-on center with interactive experiences to help inspire creativity in young ones. Round off the day with some freshly-caught seafood, in one of the local waterfront restaurants.


Kick back on the Pass Christian beach

Other than kicking back on the enormous stretch of beach, a proposition which is too tempting for many during the summer, there's much to do near your Pass Christian vacation rental. Keen anglers won't be disappointed if they hop aboard one of the daily charters in the high season, where sunny afternoons can be spent reeling in sailfish trophies. Kids will thank you if you take them to the nearby Altitude Trampoline Park, a 43,000-square foot space complete with trampolines, dodge ball courts and foam pits. Down in Gulfport you can watch drivers go full throttle at the Wednesday night drag race.


Pass Christian is delightfully warm year-round

Pass Christian's subtropical climate is the draw for most vacationers, who escape the stuffy cities in favor of the beaches and ocean on the Gulf Coast. It can get a little crowded with families, so if you're looking for a little peace and quiet, try to bag a Pass Christian vacation rental during the spring or fall, when the climate is delightfully temperate and still warm enough to eat al fresco on the waterfront. It might be quiet and the beaches deserted in the winter, but those in the know skip the freezing weather further north and head down to the coast for a little R&R.

Natural features

Pass Christian is perfect for birders

This strip of coast has long been a magnet for birdwatchers, who come to tick several key species off their list. A good introduction is the nearby Mississippi Gulf Coast Birding Trail, which has an impressive variety of resident and migrating species. If you point your binoculars to the sky, you might be lucky and catch a glimpse of a bald eagle circling in the morning thermals, while a walk past the grasslands and shallow waters gets you up close to endangered sandhill cranes and magnificent blue herons. Further down the coast, you can spot beavers, otters and even the odd alligator in the brackish Pascagoula River.
