Perched at the southern tip of Mississippi on the gorgeous Gulf Coast sits the tourist haven of Ocean Springs, a lush residential community. Well before the French established a fort here in 1699, Native Americans made the most of this beautiful, resource-rich area, and present-day Ocean Springs is flavored by a history of diverse cultural influences. The array of condominiums and one- and two-story single-family homes among the magnolias will attract homebuyers who are looking for great value in a waterfront town.
Ocean Springs, which is a mere two miles across the bridge from Biloxi, is home to 17,000 people and looks out on the Gulf of Mexico from the eastern shore of Biloxi Bay. Residents can appreciate the natural beauty of the Gulf Coast in a variety of ways. They can admire it at the Walter Anderson Museum of Art, which showcases the work of Walter Anderson. Anderson was a painter and muralist known throughout the country for his depictions of gulf scenery and wildlife in his watercolors. His brothers, both notable area ceramicists, also have works featured in the museum. Residents can also immerse themselves in beauty at Davis Bayou, which is part of the Gulf Islands National Seashore. This coastal forest is just east of downtown and has a bookstore, a fishing pier, and a walking trail that's partially wheelchair-accessible.
