This Groovy Town In Florida Is A True Hippie Paradise

It's time to collect another Florida postcard that will remind you why you live in the Sunshine State. There is a hippie town with all the colorful vibes that will make you love summer season forever. Gulfport, Florida is a town full of hippie vibes, ocean views, and charming characters.

Gulfport is a small town located in Pinellas County, Florida. This old-Florida town features colorful-pastel cottages, unique shops, waterfront views, and an art scene like no other. The town has the Gulport Casino Ballroom which was built in 1906 and a colorful rainbow alley filled with shops and restaurants that scream "endless summer".

This town's slogan is "Keep Gulfport Weird" and there is no doubt the public art speaks for itself. Its inclusive and creative atmosphere is inviting to out-of-towners who are looking for a unique summer experience.

There are many things to do around Gulfport such as parasailing, jet skiing, shopping, and strolling through the artistic streets. The laidback island lifestyle will make you want to extend your getaway.

If you are looking for a funky and vintage store, check out Love Vintage Life where you will find unique finds and vintage memorabilia. Also, Caddy's Gulfport should be your first stop for your Instagram shot.

This small town has eclectic shops, beachfront bars, art galleries, and a wonderful food scene to delight in. Golden Dinosaurs Vegan Deli should be your next stop if you want a healthy and colorful meal. The casual nightlife offers incredible tiki bars and restaurants with live music performance and local craft beer for a relaxing summer night.

Your trip can't be completed with a tanning session at the paradisiac beaches. The white sand bliss with its beautiful sunsets are a major reason why you would move to this town. A truly hipster paradise!

The best part about Gulfport is that if you just can't get enough of the good vibes, you can easily pop right over to downtown St. Pete or America's best beach - Clearwater, and soak up even more fun Florida sun.
