Locals say “OS the best” and a reporter writing for the Wall Street Journal would agree.
Journalist Brewed Chelseawho lives in New Orleans, recently visited the Jackson County town and enjoyed fine dining, local restaurants, the Walter Anderson Museum of Artthe beach and more.
Brasted comments at the beginning of his article that the charm of Ocean Springs comes from its authenticity and its local atmosphere.
“Souvenir shops filled with T-shirts and floating toys are conspicuously absent. There are no beach bars overflowing with sunburned bodies, and a lunch doesn’t mean mediocre fish sandwiches and hot buckets of beer,” she wrote.
Brasted enjoyed a meal at Vestige, which she said was one of the best she had had recently. She visited WAMA and was able to relax on the water.
She chronicled him coffee at Bright Eyed and his stays at Ocean Springs Inns and at the Beatnik Hotel. She shopped at buddy row, shearwater pottery and Ocean Springs Trade.
