Needs a little more.

It has the potential to be a very nice place. The restaurants and stores that are there are very nice but it could use a few more to really make it great.

You pay $2 to walk the pier. it's nice but you're constantly stepping over fishermen and a lot of people set their poles and leave them... Not really kid friendly.

The boardwalk is smaller than we thought and mostly shops and food. It was average. I have seen better but worse as well.

Not many shops for a boardwalk. It has 3 or 4 typical beach souvenier shops and 4 or so restaurants.

Nice little shopping and dining area. Cool little shops. We especially liked the kite store. The kids liked the playground and ice cream shop. The Black Pearl left a lot to be desired but the rest of the place was nice.

I visited the Boardwalk one afternoon out exploring what was close to our hotel. The sound of a boardwalk intrigued me. I was really disappointed as there was one shop, a Gelato shop, and a couple of restaurants. And the boardwalk wasn't very long. I really felt as though I had wasted time going there.

Great restaurants, shops, snacks. Nice ocean views from the upper decks of the boardwalk. Playground area for small children to enjoy.

This is the place to go to have some beers, be on the beach, and generally just hang out. It is less crowded in the late fall.

It is not a huge place but it is still got some good things there. Just not a lot of variety. It is not the Harbor Walk of Destin but it has a surf shop and Ice cream shop and other small shops.
