BILOXI, MS (WLOX)- Guests arriving in South Mississippi this week will receive an extra warm welcome. Tourism staff members have stationed themselves at several welcome centers to greet visitors. It's part of "National Travel and Tourism Week", but that's not the only reason they're celebrating.
The enticing aroma of fresh popcorn and a huge dose of southern hospitality filled the entrance of the Biloxi Visitors Center on Monday.
"They are smiling, always smiling," commented Pauline Houdebine, who is visiting from France.
