Quote of the Week


“I love that Gulfport is an old Florida seaside village. What I find special about our town is the community. Many of the folks I love are within walking distance of my front door. It’s the day to day hellos where people know you by name, the incredible events, and the sheer diversity of all the people who live here & love this town… That’s what really makes Gulfport special.”- Victoria
