Gibsonton, Florida, is known as Showtown and Freaktown USA. The city has been the winter home for a large population of circus and carnival sideshow performers for nearly 70 years.
Welcome to Gibtown, the popular home of showmen and misfits. Located 10 miles south of Tampa, Gibsonton was the popular roosting place of modern-day nomads: circus folks who drew crowds with their oddities. Elsewhere, they were social outcasts; but here in this town, they were the stars. That is, when they weren't somewhere else entertaining people with their special skills. Most of the famous misfits have retired or passed by now, and a tour of its neighborhood won't give you a glimpse of The Giant and his Half-Girl wife who, with their oddities, kind of placed Gibsonton on the map. But with the presence of amusement rides, descendants of the original circus folks, nostalgic stories and probably an elephant here and there (or some other exotic animals, if you're lucky), there's a sense of quirkiness to this city you won't be able to find elsewhere. If you love quirky, better get working and look over some property rentals in Gibsonton. See more
Finding an apartment in Gibsonton that accepts your pet may not be easy, but it’s very possible. Keep in mind, most of the time you’ll have to pay a premium for bringing your dog along in your new apartment. Some apartments require you to pay monthly pet rent, others will ask for a non-refundable pet fee or a refundable pet deposit.
While landlords and property management companies have varying pet policies, most of them limit the number of dogs you can bring to your apartment and include breed and weight restrictions.
If your pet falls under some of the restrictions outlined in the pet policy, it’s still worth asking the landlord if they can make an exception for your dog. Preparing a pet resume ahead of time could help you build the case for your furry friend. Make sure to include information on behavioral training your dog went through over the years and proof of vaccinations. If you can, include references from your former landlord and/or neighbors.
