Gulfport, MS


City of Gulfport COVID-19 Executive Order no. 9 - emergency mayoral proclamation of executive order regarding mask mandate

Offering a plethora of parks and water recreation areas throughout the city, up-close-and-personal adventures with marine life, zip-lining tours through the coastal canopies, and an array of dining and entertainment options, Gulfport has something for everyone.

Take a boat excursion out to Ship Island, a fishing charter to some of the best spots, or simply stroll around Gulfport’s beautiful harbor and eclectic downtown area, featuring an ever-evolving public art scene in an old fishmonger’s alley.

Gulfport's entertainment district, where patrons may leave a restaurant or bar with a purchased drink in a go-cup, covers the waterfront from just east of 18th Avenue to 36th Avenue, including the harbor, and runs north to the CSX railroad tracks in the downtown area.
