Complete Vacation, Recreation and Tourism Information

Incorporated in 1898, Gulfport quickly took advantage of its geographical location to become one of the most critical seaports in the region. Soon, Gulfport blossomed as a resort destination, and has continued to grow as such ever since. Today, Gulfport is Mississippi's second largest city.

Grand historic homes, dynamic sunsets and ancient live oak trees quickly remind visitors why Gulfport is such a popular resort destination. Gulfport offers sandy beaches, first-rate spas, gorgeous fairways, relaxing ferry rides, and a lovely downtown for those who want to take it easy and simply enjoy the stunning surroundings offered by this coastal city. For those who feel lucky, Gulfport supplies a number of casinos and resorts- making for an exciting weekend, and diverse nightlife opportunities.

The Spring Pilgrimage of homes, gardens and historic sites offers visitors a look into Southern culture. Held in March or April of every year, the Spring Pilgrimage not only features Gulfport sites, but significant sites along the entire Mississippi Gulf Coast. Early July brings the ever-popular annual "Worlds Largest Fishing Rodeo." This enormous fishing tournament draws huge numbers of people.

Gulfport is located in the most southern region of Mississippi, along the coast at the intersection of Highways 90 and 49. Gulfport is approximately 150 miles south of Jackson, and 70 miles south of Hattiesburg, MS.
