THE GULF COAST: AFTER THE STORMS
George visits islands, resort towns and beaches in Florida, Alabama and Mississippi.
George Bauer's post-Katrina tour of the Gulf Coast takes him first to Florida, where his itinerary includes St. George Island, an inhabited but relatively unspoiled spit of land with beautiful beaches, marshlands and wooded areas, and Seaside, a picture-perfect beach town featured in the 1997 film The Truman Show. In Alabama, stops include Fairhope, a resort town with an unusual history, and the port city of Mobile, thought by many to be Alabama's most beautiful community. In Mississippi, George visits Biloxi-a prime gambling destination-and Pass Christian, once a popular getaway for wealthy New Orleanians.
