Gulfport was first established as a quaint fishing village in 1910, after formerly being known as Disston City, Bonifacio, and Veteran City; although this small town may have changed its name from time to time, the striking waterfront views, tropical setting, and “Old Florida” charm have not altered. Gulfport is a small 2.8 square mile town of around 12,000+ residents nine miles from St. Petersburg and sits along the lovely Boca Ciega Bay which leads out to the Gulf of Mexico. Although Gulfport is close to Tampa, the area is tucked away from the crowding and traffic of the neighboring cities. This undiscovered gem holds the charm of a Key West atmosphere from the early twentieth century and is brought to life by the candy colored bungalows and cottages that line the streets, small shops, and lively citizens of the town.

One of the great things about Gulfport is that you can choose to do as little or as much as you would like, there is something for everyone! Clam Bayou Nature Preserve is a great place to take a relaxing stroll, or grab your fishing pole and head out to William’s Pier for the day where you will find plenty of benches, exterior lighting, and a fish cleaning table. I recommend you stay till nightfall to end your day watching a beautiful sunset. Enjoy a performance at the Catherine Hickman Theater or if you’re feeling peppy, the beautiful historic Gulfport Casino with authentic 1930’s ballroom hosts dancing five nights a week. Gulfport’s Fresh Market and Famous Art Walk are regular events in Gulfport year-round and always attract a crowd. During Gulfport’s Tuesday Fresh Market, you will find vendors covering Beach Blvd. with fresh produce, baked goods, seafood, cheeses, spices and more. Entertainment, hand crafts, and clothing are also up for grabs. The Gulfport Art Walks makes the already entertaining street of Beach Blvd. come to life with artists, merchants, entertainers, and great food! If you get tired of walking, have the trolley take you around. The craft fairs in Crystal Beach are something you may enjoy as well!
