While some may think that the Gulf Coast is no place that anyone really wants to be right now, the fact is you could be scoring a great vacation, get your pick of the best rooms, and maybe even save a little coin on hotels, inns, and bed and breakfasts in the Gulf Coast region. More important than getting a good rate; the Gulf Coast will always be a great place to visit and stay; the BP Oil Spill be damned. Folks in the Gulf Coast overcame Katrina, they’ve overcome plenty more, and they will persevere through this current debacle. For your summer travel, why not consider a visit to any one of these three wonderful Gulf Coast bed and breakfasts?
B&W Courtyards: New Orleans, LA: French Quarter: Some may consider New Orleans Ground Zero for the BP Oil Spill but trust me when I say that the folks in New Orleans are just trying to get along as well as always. B&W Courtyards innkeepers Rob & Kevin will gladly welcome you into their bed and breakfast compound and make you feel right at home. The B&W Courtyards Bed & Breakfast is right in the French Quarter where there’s always a party going on. Relaxing, rejuvenating, and probably with far fewer crowds than usual; “Oil spill? What Oil spill?” B&W Courtyards Bed & Breakfast 2425 Chartres St. New Orleans LA. 504-945-9418.
Wilson House Inn Bed & Breakfast: Ocean Springs, MS: Just east of Biloxi in Mississippi along the Gulf Coast is the Wilson House Inn Bed & Breakfast.

Wilson House Inn Bed & Breakfast is a AAA/Double Diamond Approved spot and despite all the progress which has sprung up around him, innkeeper Brian has made every effort to keep things just as they were. Sit out on the front porch, admire the fine original artwork, and breathe in the history which surrounds you at the Wilson House Inn Bed & Breakfast in Ocean Springs Mississippi. Wilson House Inn Bed & Breakfast 6312 Allen Rd Ocean Springs, MS. 228-875-6933.
