Gulfport is a suburb of St Petersburg, Florida located on Boca Ciega
Bay which is part of the Intracoastal Waterway on the west coast of Florida.
With slightly less than 13, 000 inhabitants ( 12,740 as of 2004 ), it
feels like a small coastal town with a pier, dance hall and a main street
complete with shops, restaurants and bars. It is also home to
some quaint houses/cottages and numerous community activities.
The sort of town that would appeal to someone who is tired of
"big city" life. Check it out here http://gulfportflorida.us/
