Gulfport is the second biggest city in the state of Mississippi. It was founded by William H. Hardy and Joseph T. Jones, who widened the harbor in Gulfport and opened the channel to the sea. In 1902 the harbor became a working seaport that nowadays brings millions of dollars in the Mississippi state. Due to its long, white sand beaches along the Gulf of Mexico and its Coast Casinos, Gulfport is a great tourism destination.
