“When we first heard about a city in Florida that has a festival celebrating the gecko, we had to check it out.  What we found was a quaint art village on the water with Old Florida charm.  A throwback from a different era, Gulfport is open to all walks of life.  It felt like home and we made it just that.” – Stephen and Chris
