Some would say that living in the Gulfport-South Pasadena is living in the best of all possible worlds.
The two cities are small, friendly, have accessible, hometown government and neither is a “tourist trap.” Gulfport, with its historic, waterfront village is said by many to be a throwback to the atmosphere of “Old Florida.” South Pasadena, on the other hand, is made up of a few, small single family neighborhoods, lots of mid and high rise condos, (some gated, some not), a regional hospital, many medical specialists and excellent shopping.
Gulfport has just over 12,000 residents with 6,246 households. In South Pasadena there are about 4962 residents.
If location is primary in valuing real estate, both Gulfport and South Pasadena can be considered prime properties. Only a few minutes separate South Pasadena from some of Florida’s best beaches. Gulfport Boulevard, a main thoroughfare shared by both communities serves as a direct link to I-275, less than 3 miles to the East. Downtown St. Petersburg is only 2.5 miles East of Gulfport’s eastern border. Most Gulfport residents can get to The Tampa Bay Rays’ Tropicana Field in under 10 minutes and downtown in under 15. The Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority, (PSTA), provides regular daily bus service to downtown St. Petersburg.
Tampa International Airport is about 30 minutes away via I-275 making the two city’s readily accessible to most of the world.
