Gasparilla Inn Historic District is a historic district at 500 Palm Avenue in Boca Grande, Florida, United States. On March 18, 2008, it was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.[1]

The National Register designation centers largely on the Gasparilla Inn itself, which is one of the largest surviving resort hotels in Florida, constructed originally for wealthy northerners in the early 20th century, during the time when the state became a travel and vacation destination.[2]
