Enjoy The Sights Of Cruisin' The Coast

For the next week, we get to step back in time again. Some of the classic cars we drove in our youth are coming back to the Mississippi Gulf Coast.  And they'll sparkle just like the sun does when it glistens off the Mississippi Sound.

Cruisin the Coast is now 11 years old. And from all accounts, it's done exactly what it was set up to do. It's extended the tourism season into fall.

The numbers are certainly impressive. At least four thousand vintage cars will pump an estimated $15 million into the local economy.

But what's more impressive to us is the atmosphere. The combination of our beautiful shoreline and mint condition classics rolling down Highway 90 can't be beat.

What we like so much about Cruisin the Coast is how it connects the entire coast together.

So, slick back your hair, put on your bobby socks, and get ready to have a good time. Cruisin the Coast is back for another week of southern hospitality.

That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to editorials@wlox.com.
