General Information About Gulfport

Gulfport is a funky little community on Boca Ciega Bay that has a lovely Superior Small Lodging Bed & Breakfast overlooking the water. Perfect for visitors who are sometimes drawn to the town with a reputation as an artists’ hangout!

Enjoy Gulfport Art Walks on the first Friday and third Saturday of every month, and hang out with artists and art lovers from all around. Be sure to visit the Art Village Courtyard, which is situated on Beach Boulevard (which, along with Shore Boulevard, is a must-see street). Here, you will find the village houses artists and artisans selling their wares. Its courtyard is home to regular open-mic nights and Saturday fresh markets, making it for a lively time!

Calling all avid boaters! The Gulfport Municipal Marina is convenient to inland waters and the open waters of the Gulf. Gulfport is home to Stetson University College of Law, Florida’s first law school, as well as the Historic Gulfport Casino, a hopping place for Latin, swing, salsa and traditional ballroom dance.

To get your bearings in this eclectic town, take a free, half-hour tour on the Gulfport Trolley. Slightly farther afield, find the Gulf beaches, downtown St. Petersburg and more.

Visitors who choose a Superior Small Lodging in Gulfport, will find themselves right in the middle of a quaint, historic, artsy community.
