What is the closest decent beach to Baton Rouge? I want to take the kids to the beach Sunday. Lake Charles, Biloxi, Gulfport, Pass Christian, Bay St. Louis, or Long Beach? I've been to Biloxi/Gulfport 1000 times, just wondering if there was a nicer beach nearby.

The beaches in Mississippi, Bay St Louis/Pass, are nice. The water is what sucks. The sand is fine and it's wide open and totally legit. The water is shallow for a long way out and it's kind of browner than you'd like.
If you're going to sit on the beach and drink beer, toss the football or frisbee, run the dogs...BSL is the closest real beach. If you want to get in the water and play in the waves you're going to have to go further east.
