Interesting, Eclectic, Gulfport

Keep Gulfport Weird

One of many quirky shops in Gulfport.

Quirky Gulfport is just ten minutes from the heart of St. Petersburg, Florida. It’s a small, eclectic community with a big personality. If you like discovering small towns as well as big cities, consider spending some time in a Gulfport, Florida Bed and Breakfast.

Gulfport is a suburb of St. Petersburg, and as such, it is close to such attractions as the Salvador Dali Museum and the Museum of Fine Arts. Yet it is possible to see fantastic art without leaving Gulfport. Art Walks, showcasing the works of local and regional artists, take place the first Friday and third Saturday of each month, from 6 to 10 p.m. During these events, the Art District of Beach and Shore Boulevards is transformed into a vast outdoor market with stalls, art demonstrations, and live music.

Each Tuesday, farmers bring their fresh produce to the open-air market held in Gulfport’s Waterfront District on Beach Boulevard. The market runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at this time a year (closing at 2 p.m. once the heat of summer is in full force). If you like to picnic from time to time, picnic on a Tuesday and fill your basket at the Gulfport Farmer’s Market.

Dozens of restaurants, shops, and galleries make their home in Gulfport. Outdoor recreation abounds, as it does elsewhere along the coast of Central West Florida. Use a Gulfport, Florida Bed and Breakfast as a base while exploring nearby St. Petersburg and Sarasota, or simply make yourself at home and enjoy all this delightful town as to offer.
