Stop and gamble a bit at Biloxi. Lots of choices. Favorites include Hard rock and Beau Revage. Grab a rental car and New Orleans is 1:15 to the west. Head east less the hour to beautiful gulf beaches of Gulf Shores, AL or Pensacola, FL.

If you're not there for business, Bay St. Louis/Gulfport/Biloxi is a gambling town. Here is a groupon for Bay St. Louis to stay at the former Casino Magic if you act really quick:

http://www.groupon.com/deals/ga-m-ho...&c=deal_button

Seems like a heckuva deal although I haven't been in there lately as I got fired as their customer a long time ago, back in days gone by it was pretty profitable place to hang out.

In the actual town of Gulfport is the Island View which I recommend rather than casinos owned by out of town corporate interests. No point in going to a "chain" like Beau Rivage (MGM Resorts) or Hard Rock unless you're getting a great deal like the one Magic/now Hollywood is offering.

Wish I could find this to book. Not on DL nor showing on ITA, at least in latter part of the year. KVS pops up $133 SFO-GPT base fare, but rules show it's only good for travel on/before April 9.

OP/Others: further info...fare basis? sample dates? was it an apparition or pulled already?

Drive about an hour and fifteen minutes to New Orleans

Actually, as mentioned, there are casinos in Gulfport and Biloxi. There's a beach, sort of. And about 10 minutes east of Biloxi there is a small artsy town called Ocean Springs that is great for dinner and drinks.

It's still showing in reverse (GPT-SFO) in April and May, early June. Some dates appear in September, but those appear to require longer stays. I'm not seeing anything past that.

I was stumped, too. I guess Channa wanted to make us all look it up.

Nice fare, obviously.

Sorry about that, guys. I was hurriedly posting this before door close on a plane.

In addition to the items posted above, GPT can also be an alternate for MSY (about 1:20 drive to downtown New Orleans).
