Millions of visitors are drawn to the islands in the northern Gulf of Mexico for the white sandy beaches, the aquamarine waters, a boat ride, a camping spot, a tour of an old fort, or a place to fish. The Gulf Islands National Seashore in Mississippi is a wonderful place to experience barrier islands, salt marshes and wildlife.
