HAPPENING IN GULFPORT, FL
Gulfport, Florida, is a colorful town located on the West Coast of Florida, near St. Petersburg. Gulfport is home to over 12,000 people and is known for its small-town feel with quiet streets, beautiful views, and for their “Old Florida” charm. The City of Gulfport was awarded the Recreational Boating Access Award for "The City of Gulfport Municipal Mooring Field." This Gateway to the Gulf is on protected Boca Ciega Bay, near the Gulf of Mexico. Gulfport offers charming waterfront businesses, restaurants, and bed and breakfasts and just a mile east of downtown is the Gulfport Municipal Marina with fuel, pump-out facilities and a ship's store.
However, there are changes happening, the biggest being development. They are introducing a multi-story mixed-use building. That includes several different types of businesses like a home good store. There are some concerns about this new development, but the businesses that are in this building still want to go with the town’s current vibes. So even with all this development, there will still be no chain stores, parking meters, and there will still be plenty of fun and unique boutiques.
