Gulfport is a coastal community in Mississippi with something for everyone. Get outdoors and enjoy the area parks and the waterfront. Rent a kayak or jet ski, board a fishing charter or take a cruise, or spend a day at the Gulf Islands Waterpark. On land, rent a bicycle at Magnolia City Rides, visit the children’s museum at the Lynn Meadows Discovery Center, or the Mississippi Coast Model Railroad Museum. You’ll find locally owned shops throughout the area, and of course, excellent seafood including Po Boys, fish plates and shrimp plates. Notice the designated Least Tern Nesting areas along Highway 90, which protect the habitat of these native birds in what’s been designated as a Globally Important Bird Area, or IBA.
