There is more great running just across the bridge from Biloxi in Ocean Springs. This bayfront community has an attractive concrete path along Front Beach Drive. It begins from the Ocean Springs Yacht Club (right off the Biloxi Bay Bridge) and continues for 1.4 miles to the Ocean Springs Harbor. It’s a nice out and back for a short run.
For a longer run, there are some pretty residential streets in Ocean Springs, from the bridge east to Halstead Rd., staying south of Highway 90. Tree-lined, quiet streets with some nice homes. E Beach Dr. has some nice homes and water views, but there’s no sidewalk/shoulder (but not too much traffic either).
Add-Ons: The Biloxi Bay Bridge/Beach Boulevard paths are also a natural add-on, continuing for up to 40 miles to Bay St. Louis
