GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

In a recent article highlighting attractions across the United States, USA Today recently named Ship Island as a hidden gem of Mississippi.

"If you're looking to get away from it all, take a trip to Ship Island," said the article. "You might start to imagine you are basking in the sun on some isolated tropical isle."

Eleven miles south of Gulfport and Biloxi, Ship Island is one of five Mississippi barrier islands and also part of Gulf Islands National Seashore.
