A charming portrait of the true South, Mississippi calls to mind rocking chairs on front porches, paddleboats winding their way lazily down rivers, antebellum mansions, and century-old oak trees spreading out their limbs for shade. Mississippi features a beautiful coastline, long stretches of forests, rolling farmlands, and cities brimming with old-fashioned Southern charm. This is a beautiful state to visit—for people and their pets.

There are also dog friendly beaches to be found in Bay St. Louis, Pascagoula, Ocean Springs, and Waveland, as well as a number of pet friendly restaurants to be found across the state.
