Ocean Springs, Bay St. Louis voted best small towns by USA Today readers
USA Today has proclaimed what Coastians have known for years, we have some of the best coastal small towns in the country.
The newspaper held a contest last month asking readers to vote in the 2022 Travel Awards Contest for Best Coastal Small Town and Best Small Town Cultural Scene.
It’s no surprise that Ocean Springs was named number one with Bay St. Louis close behind at number two.
The Coast cities were up against some heavy hitters such as Nags Head, North Carolina, Half Moon Bay, California, Bar Harbor, Maine, and Cape May, New Jersey.
To be considered, the town had to have a population of less than 25,000.
