The Biloxi Lighthouse was erected in 1848 and was one of the first cast-iron lighthouses in the South. It is the city's signature landmark and has become a post-Katrina symbol of the city's resolve and resilience. The light was civilian operated...more

Even though we were only able to view the lighthouse from the outside, we still enjoyed visiting the lighthouse. I believe we read after the fact that they only have tours at 9:00 and 9:15am. Thankfully there were placards out near the parking area which...More
After stopping to get our shrimp poboys we decided to go down to the Biloxi lighthouse to enjoy them. The view of the beach from the parking lot was beautiful. The fingernail moon reflecting of the water is a sight that really could not be...More
Please make this a must-see. Short of going to Ship Island, this is one of the best views on the coast. While a pic from the Visitor Center is great, the best experience is going when the lighthouse is open and you can climb to...More
Such a beautiful symbol of times gone by. Not sure how much of the original structure is still there but it sure is beautiful to see. This year the house has Christmas lights draped all around and looks awesome.
My husband and I made a quick trip to Gulfport to buy a truck. We drove past the park and saw many, many Christmas lights! After dinner, we stopped by and saw the most beautiful light show we’ve ever seen! The lighthouse was lit with...More
This is a good stop for a photo op and to read a little history about the lighthouse. They only give tours for 45 minutes in the morning, so otherwise you are on your own. The pier is right next to the lighthouse, another place...More

The latest information that I have is that tours are Monday - Saturday (weather permitting) 9, 9:15 and 9:30. Admission: Adults $5.00 and Children 2-12 $2.00. No reservation needed. Their phone number is 228-374-3105. There is a Biloxi Visitors Center close to the lighthouse. It is a nice place to visit. They have all kinds of pamphlets and information as well as a movie. We love the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Unless we are staying in a condo; we almost always stay at the smoke free Palace Casino. The buffet is GREAT and our rooms are always GREAT as well.
