This is a great spring/summer/fall ride. It doesn't really matter what point you start at, it is all nice. Through Mississippi, you experience some nice new high rise bridges, new asphault (still under construction in some locations as of this posting), white sand beaches, plenty of places to eat, casinos and plenty of stop points. Into Alabama, the highway goes through some small towns and nice scenery, then through Bayou LaBatre and onto Daughin Island where there is a really cool Civil War fort. At Daughin Island, you take a ferry across the Bay of Mobile for a small fee (for groups of bikes, they sometimes give discounts). Across the bay, you land at another really cool Civil War fort and along the beach road toward Gulf Shores. In Gulf Shores, you get into the tourist amenities (souvenir stores, condos, hotels, etc.) and again, plenty of great places to eat. Along the beach corridor, you continue along toward Perdido Key, Florida where (if you are so inclined) you can remove your helmet and air out your skull (no helmet law in FL). When you take this ride, take your time, enjoy the scenery and WEAR YOUR SUNSCREEN.

Mando (rrj10) and I rode pert of this route today (03-22-17). We merged onto route 90 in Grand Bay, Florida and traveled west to Bay St. Louis, Mississippi. The problem with this route is the heavy traffic and frequent stop lights until you exit Biloxi. From then until Bay St Louis the Gulf is on one side and various developed real estate on the other. Interesting ride.
Recommend connecting to 90 off of I 110 in downtown Biloxi and head west. That way you have the scenic part without too much traffic.
