My next stop on my taste and travel at home tour is Coastal Mississippi! Travel isn’t exactly a great option right now. That doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy treats from your favorite destinations, including your own state.
At Second Season Travel, we’re on a travel at home mission to support small businesses and farmers from all the communities we love, and those we have yet to discover.
Join us for an At-Home Taste of Coastal Mississippi
A few months ago, we took you on a foodie adventure through Coastal Mississippi. If you are in the area, one way to support this lovely community is to order take out from local restaurants. Many are offering curbside service or home deliveries. It’s a great way to take a break and enjoy some gourmet delights at home while ensuring these businesses will survive and thrive so you can enjoy dining in when the stay-at-home orders are lifted.
Vestige is collaborating with local farms to provide you fresh seasonal vegetables and flowers weekly. Locals can pre-order for curbside pick-up.
You can also travel to your favorite destinations like Coastal Mississippi via mail by ordering local goods to help ensure they are there to greet you upon your next visit. If you haven’t been to the Mississippi Gulf Coast yet, you are in for a treat – start your journey at home with some goodies to get a taste of the local flavors.
Coast Roast has a terrific online shop where you can order many of their custom coffees, teas, goods and even green coffee beans if you enjoy roasting your own coffee at home. (I’m enjoying a cup right now as I’m typing this guide!)
Mary Mahoney’s will ship a gallon of their famous seafood gumbo straight to your doorstep. Serious yum!
You can also get fresh Mississippi Gulf Shrimp delivered to you via the Biloxi Shrimp Company. From popcorn shrimp to jumbo shrimp, they have it available for an exceptionally reasonable price, too. I’ll be placing an order this week and cannot wait for it to arrive. From experience, these are the very best shrimp… you simply cannot beat fresh from Coastal Mississippi!
Need a little self-care or relaxation for your staycation? Pamper yourself with some Buff City Soap bath and beauty products.
And order up some fun Lazy Mag Swag from Lazy Magnolia Brewery which is also offering local service curb side orders for specialty brews!
