This eccentric, artsy town at the south tip of St. Petersburg is beloved by nonconformists. At the outer edges of town, artists have painted their cottage homes in candy-colored hues. The city really comes to life on the waterfront, where festivals are held year-round. There's room for everyone at ample public beaches, and picnic areas and small art galleries and curio shops dot every corner. Gulfport has a vibrant gay community, and longtime local artists mingle with newly arrived retirees.
Getting Around Tampa
The best way to get around Tampa is by car. While public transit exists, the system can be confusing to visitors. If staying downtown during your entire visit, you might forgo a car and use the TECO Line Streetcar instead.
