Where to Enjoy the Outdoors in Coastal Mississippi

June 29, 2020

There’s more to choosing a new home builder on Gulf Coast MS than just looking at their houses. You need to consider the lifestyle their communities offer as well. At Acadian Homes, we build in a region that allows you convenient access to the Gulf Coast and all the outdoor recreation the area has to offer. Whether you head to “The Secret Coast” for a day or a week, you’ll find plenty of ways to enjoy your visit.

Hiking and biking

Coastal trails can take you through forests, parks or beachfront areas. You can find trails with paved or natural surfaces. Try the Tuxachanie Hiking Trail, the Clower-Thornton Nature Trail or the Bethel Mountain Biking Trail.

Wildlife watching and birding

You may see a variety of birds and even some wildlife at almost any outdoor coastal location. But for dedicated viewing, head to the Pascagoula River Audubon Center or the Mississippi Sandhill Crane National Wildlife Refuge.


The coast is full of Blueways, our scenic water trails that let you enjoy wildlife, historic sites and beautiful scenery from a fresh perspective. The Pascagoula River Blueway is the country’s longest free-flowing waterway. You can also paddle on the Old Fort Bayou Blueway, the Jourdan River Blueway or Wolf River Water Trails.

Boat cruises

If you’d rather sail or ride on a larger boat, charter a sailboat or take a coastal cruise. Dip into the back bays and bayous or skirt a barrier island to see the Gulf from the water.


Go primitive with a backpack and tent on the beach or glam it up in a luxury RV at Gulf Islands National Seashore. Other campgrounds include Airey Lake Recreation Area and Shepard State Park.

We love the outdoors as much as you do! Our communities strive to preserve as much of the natural surroundings as possible. Numerous stately oak trees stand throughout our communities of Oak Landing and Plantation Oaks.

Plantation Oaks is located off Three Rivers Road in Gulfport MS. Some home sites even have a pond next to the back yard. With our fully customizable floor plans, you can design your home to be everything you’ve always wanted. Act now to get the best deals with today’s historic low mortgage rates!
