Welcome to Gulfport Florida!

We have an interesting collection of people to meet, places to visit, and things to do in our undiscovered little community. With natural beauty enhanced by our colorful personality, you will find Gulfport FL to be a visionary experience that you will want to share with your family and friends.

Located on the Boca Ciega Bay with a nice beach and long fishing pier, Gulfport's Waterfront District attracts young and old alike.

Gulfport is famous for it's variety of dining experiencs. In fact, Gulfport was one of the six finalist in the Rand McNally "Best of the Road" out of 600 competing towns for "Best for Food".

Check out all of our local dining establishments here on

Many of Gulfport's first time visitors come to taste our delicious offerings and then come back with freinds to share the discovery.

Visitors may enjoy a delicious breakfast after a nice walk along Shore Blvd to take in the scenic view of Tierra Verde across the bay. Then they might spend a few hours shopping for original paintings, unique gifts, Florida souvenirs, or rare antiques. Maybe they will just take in the scenery or photograph the colorful buildings and homes that sit on tree covered streets in Gulfport. Lunch or Dinner would be enjoyed in any of the several popular restaurants on Gulfport, Beach and Shore Blvds.

Gulfport Florida has beautiful parks and a relaxing walk in the Clam Bayou Nature Preserve is always a visual and auditory treat with the sights and sounds of wild birds, the breeze in the trees, and the water of the bayou. One of my favorite things to do in Gulfport is walk out onto Williams' Pier at sunset to take pictures or just follow the sun as it goes down while watching the clouds put on a colorful show. After it gets dark, I let my eyes dance with the reflecting lights from Salty's Gulfport and O' Maddy's Bar and Grill on the gentle evening waves for a calming experience.

On the first Friday and third Saturday of every month at 6:00 pm, Beach Blvd comes alive with artists, vendors, musicians, and great food during our famous Gulfport Art Walks.

Every Tuesday is Gulfport's Tuesday Fresh Market where fresh produce is sold and vendors set up offering fresh baked breads, fresh seafood, cheeses, nuts, spices and sauces, along with hand crafted art and clothing and more!

Gulfport Florida is a great place to discover, and I promise you will be pleased with what you find. And I bet you will enjoy sharing the secret with your friends!

A True Gulfport Adventure! Well, I fiinally did it. 

 Kayak Nature Adventures in Gulfport, Florida.

From the first day I drove into Gulfport I knew I wanted to take a Kayak Nature Adventure tour. I'm ashamed to say that it took me two and half years to do it, but now I can say I have done it. And you can bet I will do it again...often.

It was magnificent! Absolutely beautiful! I had no idea what I was missing!
