Centuries ago, treasure hunters combed the coastal areas of the United States in search of riches. Today, that hunt might lead you to Mississippi and U.S. Highway 90. More than twenty miles of white sandy beaches, historic homes, trees draped in Spanish Moss, a lighthouse and towering hotels and casinos line this stretch of road about an hour outside of both Mobile, AL and New Orleans, LA. Having traveled it numerous times, I still think it is one of the most beautiful drives in the South. At times, U.S. 90 runs so close to the beaches and the water, you can almost reach out of and touch it.
