We stayed at emerald grand hotel and had the harbor boardwalk in front of us. There are many great shops on two levels on the boardwalk with a variety of shops and eateries. Right along the water it's a great place for an afternoon stroll or some serious shopping. We attended a concert at the amphitheater where different groups perform.... More

We had a pleasant evening on the boardwalk. A lot of different shops there for shopping, drinking and eating. Enjoyed the boardwalk viewing the scenery and the fishing boats. There is a lot to do there. You should stop by.

Well I wish there was more going on when we visited. Yes most of the restaurants were open as was the popcorn, fudge and Starbucks shops. Unless you're in a mood to shop or eat there really isn't much to do this time of year. However it looks like it would be a very fun place to be in high... More

We had a great time down on the Boardwalk, as a family. You could see boats coming in with their daily catch. There was ziplining and tower jumps. Tons of little bars and walk up restaurants and also some sit-down restaurants, including a Margaritaville. Shopping, walking, ocean views. If you are not sure what you want to do, head down...
