Traveling the Gulf Islands Scenic Drive

The Gulf Islands Scenic Drive runs through 3 states from Bay St. Louis, Mississippi to Newport, Florida (south of Tallahasse). To date our detailed travelogues have only covered the portion from Pensacola, Florida to Apalachicola, Florida. In 2019 we hope to complete documenting the entire drive.

Below are links to travel pages of various destinations and attractions along the Scenic Drive followed by map images and links to our annotated Scenic Drive Road Maps.
