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. On the West end of Shore Blvd., a comfortable stroll from the Sea Breeze Manor, are local favorite establishments such as O’ Maddy’s Bar and Grill (Five Star meals in a t-shirt and shorts atmosphere), Salty’s (beach bum and sports fan hangout), and Neptune’s Grille (great seafood, Greek dishes and an outside bar)!
The Historic Gulfport Casino sits on the Bay where Beach Blvd. South meets Shore Blvd. The Casino (not a “gambling” Casino, but a “gathering and meetings place”) is active with weekly Swing dances, Salsa dancing and lessons, concerts, art shows, weddings, parties, and much more.
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. Beach Blvd. runs from the Gulfport Casino to the upper left of the photo. 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, Gulfport Beach Bazaar, and other cool shops and galleries.
