In 1910, the name officially changed to Gulfport."Old Florida" is a phrase often evoked in describing Gulfport's waterfront district, with its mix of small-scale cottages and small independent shops, restaurants and other businesses, situated among mature oak trees and brick-paved streets.GeographyAccording to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 3.8sqmi. 2.8sqmi of it is land and 1.0sqmi of it (26.30%) is water.
