Sea Breeze Manor Bed and Breakfast from air over Gulfport Florida

Gulfport Beach, Historic Gulfport Casino and Downtown Waterfront District

The aerial photograph of Gulfport Beach on beautiful Boca Ciega Bay shows the location of the Sea Breeze Manor Bed and Breakfast in relation to the Gulfport Recreation Center (waterfront on left) and the historic Gulfport Casino and Downtown Gulfport Waterfront District (waterfront on right).

Shore Blvd. runs East and West (left and right) in front of the Sea Breeze Manor B&B. The East end intersects with 58th Street South and the friendly over 55 community of Town Shores.

Also an easy walk from Sea Breeze Manor Bed and Breakfast is Gulfport's Beach Blvd., famous for it's festivals, unique shops, and great restaurants.

People come from miles around on the First Friday and Third Saturday of every month for our vibrant and colorful Art Walks which start at 6:00 pm. Gulfport's Tuesday Fresh Market happens every week on Beach Blvd. during the day with fresh produce and dozens of vendors offering a wide variety of tasty treats and interesting arts and crafts. Large festivals such as our amazing Geckofest, Gulfport's Get Rescued, Springfest, our Home Town 4th of July Celebration, and more occur on Beach Blvd. South among the many shops and restaurants.

For shopping on Beach Blvd., visitors and locals enjoy Domain Home Accessories, Bo-Tiki, Country Harvest, Can Sans, Peace Frog, Beach Bazaar, and other cool shops and galleries.
