Gulfport near St Petersburg is a beautiful, unique little beach town right at the end of the Boca Ciega Bay peninsula. Often overlooked for the barrier islands, yet we feel that it has a lovely fun-loving and easy going atmosphere which we adore. It is an artist community which literally glows at night with all the lights on the trees along the Beach Boulevard.
There is a beach – fine for swimming and sunbathing – plus a four block stretch of good restaurants, little cafes and funky boutiques. The locals are really friendly and twice monthly they put on an ‘art walk’ which is really like a low key street party – the first Friday and third Saturday from 6pm to 10pm
