This is exciting news for the city, especially now that the Harbor Christmas Light Show is at full illumination. In writing the article, Expedia identified cites across the nation that have pleasing temperatures, and offer a unique allure. Gulfport stood out on this list not only because it’s average high in January is a warm 61° F, but also for offering activities such as:

  • Enjoying prime oyster season at one of the many great seafood restaurants
  • Lizana Mardi Gras Parade
  • Gulfport Dragway

This is the first time Gulfport has drawn national attention about its winter attractions.
