Written Directions

**As your alternate route, since the bridge is out at Biloxi Bay: From O.S. take Washington north to I-10. Go West. Exit at I-110 going South. You are now on the other side in Biloxi. As your alternate route, since bridge is out across the Bay of St. Louis: Hope the ferry is running... otherwise, take Menge Ave to I-10 and then take Hwy 610 south back to the Bay of St. Louis?

The route is very easy to find and of course you can take it from west to east or east to west. My directions below are from east to west and they start just west outside of Mobile Alabama right off of I-10 where you will find Highway 90 passing through the town of Tillmans Corner and Theodore, Alabama. Simply get on Highway 90 here and take it south/west out of Alabama, through Mississippi, and into Louisiana.

Scenery

This route will start you out in southern Alabama and take you down along the Gulf Coast of Southern Mississippi and into the tip of Louisiana as you cross the Mississippi/Louisiana border heading into New Orleans. You'll start out in lush, green coastal forests and then make your way to the coast of Mississippi. Once down in Mississippi you'll drive along the beautiful Gulf Coast and see the Gulf, beaches, bays, inlets, rivers, lakes, and marsh areas. Once you pass Ocean Springs and cross over the bay and enter Biloxi you'll see a series of huge world class casinos where you can pull over and give the Casinos your hard earned money, or take some of the money they took from poor soles like yourself ... or maybe just eat at one of their outstanding restaurants and buffets. More casinos are available in Gulfport and/or Bay St. Louis. After leaving Biloxi/Gulfport/Bay St. Louis you'll want to head west and take in some more of the coastal scenery that continues as you enter the Mississippi river delta area and enter into the city of New Orleans where you'll find the world famous Bourbon and Canal St. areas. There you'll find more restaurants, pubs/bars, and arts/craft stores than you will know what to do with. You'll also probably see things you didn't expect to see to ... but that's another story. ***The lush trees aren't so lush, but the damage from Hurricane Katrina is pretty interesting and not something you see everyday! There are about 6 or so casinos re-opened and ready to take your money or make you richer.

Road Quality

Highway 90 doesn't have any tight turns as it pretty much follows flat and straight coastal land so you won't get any twisties in on this route. However it is in good condition and 4 lanes all the way till the Louisiana state line so you'll make good time except when you pass through the casino areas as it gets congested there so be careful as many cars are pulling in and out of the casinos.

Roadside Amenities

As mentioned above, this route has world class size/quality Casinos where you can pull over and donate your hard earned money, or take some of the hard earned money they took from poor soles like yourself ... or maybe just eat at one of their outstanding restaurants and buffets. Also you should stop and walk along the beaches of the Gulf of Mexico as they are nice and generally not crowded. More casinos are available in Gulfport and/or Bay St. Louis. A little insider advice is to eat at the red dog saloon in Bay St. Louis (a favorite biker hang out). If you continue past Slidell, LA then you can take it all the way into New Orleans. In New Orleans among other things you can find the world famous Bourbon St. and Canal St. areas. There you'll find more restaurants, pubs/bars, and arts/craft stores than you will know what to do with. You'll also probably see things you didn't expect to see to ... but that's another story.

***Great people. Great Food. Gorgeous casinos. Amazing views of the damage a Hurricane can bring.

This was one of the best rides I have ever taken; beautiful hills and scenery and Hunt was the neatest little towns running along the river I have seen.

As a resident of South Ms I enjoy riding Hwy 90 everyday. This route brings you past many great places to eat and also many great views. Jones Park in Gulfport is beautiful, both Long Beach and Pass have great harbors with bars, Biloxi has the casinos and other places to eat. Great fall or spring ride.

I reckon this route could be a treat to some, but not much of prime scooting. Lots of traffic, fair roads, zero curves, yes some scenery in Missippi on coast but most part not a route id recommend

Beautiful! US90 along the beaches has been repaved. There are unique sculptures created from the oak trees that did not survive Hurricane Katrina. 2 new bridges are high beautiful sweeping curves. Slow down along the beach to see kite surfers, jet skiers, shrimp boats, Biloxi Lighthouse, Beauvoir (Jefferson Davis Home) & more. Casinos are on US90 & more just a short drive. See also the MS Vietnam memorial (Ocean Springs) & the Hurricane Katrina Memorial. This is worth a trip from anywhere!
