We were here over the 4th and I was pleased with the shops and restaurants. There was plenty to keep everyone interested, including activities indoors and out for kids and teenagers. The 4th celebration was a nice touch as well. It's definitely a place worth stopping at when in the OBA and Gulf Shores area. And check the website for... More

There were nice shops to walk around in and Bimini bob's had some games to play outside. Kids enjoyed riding the Ferris wheel as well as playing a few games in the arcade. It's prob a little more fun for older children.

This is a shopping area with several restaurants, a number of shops both brand name and independent shops, theater and Ferris Wheel. Several shops displayed local artist works. Nice place to visit on a rainy day. Does not have the typical beach souvenirs.

This is a nice place to go to get away from the beach and do something different. The shops were really nice, but not my idea of vacation shopping...very trendy and expensive. There were a lot of restaurants to choose from. We stopped at a cute little gelato shop and really enjoyed it.

We went to Sunset at Wharf and had a blast. The light show was a unique touch to an already unique setting. This is a must visit when you are on the Alabama Gulf Coast.

Nice area for walking, shopping and dining. Fun atmosphere! Some places close earlier than other places so don't wait too late to start shopping.

Really fun, great stores to shop in. Music playing, small light show at night and a ferris wheel. Good break from the beach. Interesting variety of stores.
