Gulfport is the second largest city in the State of Mississippi. It was founded in 1898 as a lumber port and is still home to a major port, but these days the City is known more for tourism, casinos, 6.7 miles of sandy white beaches, fishing, and seafood. The Gulf of Mexico has played an important role in Gulfport and other cities along the coast. Gulfport‘s motto is “Where you ship comes in.”
Because of its size Gulfport has been able to attract numerous events, such as the World’s Largest Fishing Rodeo, Cruisin’ the Coast (antique car show), and Smokin’ the Sound (boat race). The 2010 Census reports that Gulfport has 67,793 people inside the City limits. 56.86% are white and 36.07% are of African American descent. The median income of Gulfport residents is $32,779.00.
Gulfport was devastated by Hurricane Camille in 1968 and then by Katrina in 2005. The City is slowly recovering. Prior to Hurricane Katrina there were several casinos located in Gulfport, but currently they casinos there are undergoing new ownership. Downtown Gulfport is currently undergoing a major renovation which should bring some wonderful changes to the city.
