Elliott Homes Team Members’ Favorite Things to Do on the Secret Coast

Cruisin’ the Coast® A local tradition shared with car enthusiasts from more than 22 countries. This incredible event is known as America’s Largest Block Party, where people gather to watch as antique, classic, hot rods & custom vehicles are paraded up and down the Coast. Since it originated in 1996, Cruisin’ the Coast has grown from just under 375 cars to over 9,800 registered this year! Enjoy an entire week of rock ‘n’ roll, drag races, sock hops, swap meets, and headline entertainment all along the Coast. Events include stops in Bay St. Louis, Biloxi, D’Iberville, Gulfport, Pass Christian, Ocean Springs and Pascagoula.

Our coastal-inspired homes with covered porches in our Pointe Breeze at Grande View community are among the best spots to view the parade of cars. Enjoy this luxury beachfront lifestyle within walking distance to the beach for less than anywhere in the country.

So much to do, so little time – that’s what visitors generally say before moving to the Secret Coast!
