Your guide to Gulfport

All About Gulfport

Mississippi’s second largest city, Gulfport, is nestled on the southern shores of the state along the Gulf coast. Visitors come here for the warm Gulf waters and vast stretches of white sand at Gulfport Beach — a beloved spot that spans Biloxi and Long Beach. Take a dip in the refreshing water, pack a picnic to enjoy near the shore, or rent kayaks, paddleboards, aqua cycles, and jet skis from local outfitters. Nearby, you’ll find restaurants, cafes, and bars, where you can try a Gulfport favorite: charbroiled oysters. Dotted throughout maritime town are several art galleries and studios, where you can learn about local artists and admire art across all mediums. For a stunning view of the sunset, make your way to the Small Craft Harbor, which encompasses Urie Pier and Fisherman’s Village.

The best time to stay in a vacation rental in Gulfport

A great time to book vacation rentals in Gulfport, Mississippi, is during the early winter months, spring, and fall when temperatures are comfortable and serve as a pleasant backdrop for Gulfport’s outdoor activities. Winters tend to be cold and short, though if you plan to visit near the holiday season, make sure to check out the Gulfport Harbor once it’s been embellished with vibrant colors and spectacular Christmas lights and displays. Summers in Gulfport are typically long, with temperatures reaching sweltering heights. Even in the heat, you can explore Gulfport’s museums, art galleries, or check out the Gulf Coast Symphony Orchestra.
