About Hancock County:
Coastal Mississippi is truly a pleasure seeker’s paradise. Our cultural arts, casual environment, recreational opportunities, and fabulous food have made this area a premier destination year-round, whether you’re looking to relocate or to simply enjoy a quiet weekend getaway.
When you come play on the bay, you’ll find a rich gumbo of recreational, cultural, historic, and culinary experiences befitting every style and personality. Is it quiet, country living you’re after? Maybe you’d prefer a coastal home with the salty gulf breezes wafting through your front porch. Are you the outdoorsy type, or do you relish the artistic side of life? Do you enjoy history? Food? Great music? Photography? Whatever your pleasure, the choices are endless. It’s all here, ready and waiting for you.
