Soon you’ll be able to waste away on Buffett Beach in Pascagoula, Mississippi:

Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant wasn’t wasting away any time signing a bill to honor Jimmy Buffett.

The beach just blocks from the musician’s childhood home in Pascagoula will now carry his name. City leaders said they want the world to know they are proud that the famous singer-songwriter was born in Pascagoula. They say putting Buffett’s name on the beach would boost the city’s tourism market.

Officials told us previously they hope to hold the dedication ceremony for Buffett Beach on May 6, 2017. The city already dedicated a bridge to the singer in September 2015.
