Gibsonton is also affectionately known as
Showtown by the show people of the outdoor amusement industry who winter
here. Where else in the world could you see carnival booths and ride
attractions parked in residential yards, along with with the occasional
elephant? And it's all OK.
Gibsonton is also supported by year-round
businesses, boating and a thriving aquaculture industry. New home
developments are starting to spring up too.
Gibsonton is located just 10 minutes from Tampa, and
40 minutes from St. Petersburg and Sarasota.
