Things to do

More coming soon!

Ocean Springs, MS was recently named the #1 Best Small Coastal Town in the country by USA Today. This small town of approximately 18,000 residents has over 100 restaurants and is home to the famous painter, writer and philosopher Walter Anderson. 

Hops and Growlers, a small batch craft brewery in Ocean Springs, will be brewing a special beer for the GERS meeting! Plan to stop by Hops and Growlers (2339 Government Street, Ocean Springs) to taste the official 2022 GERS meeting beer!
