It was nice enough as for me nothing extraordinary but nice place to visit. I would visit it again if I ever go back to the area.

I used to avoid the Boardwalk because I imagined the "spring-breaker" types filling up the beach and acting obnoxious. But some friends of mine were meeting there one day, so we decided to go. It's not that way at all. There are a few partiers, but they're pretty much just like everyone else visiting the beach. None have been too... More

Not very much to do. The kids were bored. A few upscale souvenir shops that were interesting. Beachside food and drinks.

So wonderful to shop, eat and enjoy the beautiful weather while strolling through the boardwalk, a real treat! Free entertainment at night and beautiful and reasonable artist store on second floor, really reasonable so you can enjoy the pictures after you go home.

The boardwalk has several shops and restaurants for every kind. We tried every restaurant and went to every shop! Were not disappointed with anything! Of course prices are a little high but not un-affordable. Will go back yearly!

This is a cool place to visit when in Destin. There are several very good restaurants in here (we like the black Pearl) and a really awesome kite shop. We always like to stop at the ice cream store after dinner and then enjoy the sunset. Definitely a cool place to visit

Our family had a meal together at Rockin' Tacos on our last night in FL. The food was good; the wait wasn't too long for a Saturday night, since we had not made reservations. It was a bit loud, but the young family members loved the music!

Nothing special. Just some shops and restrants by the water. The gelato was good though. I recommend the butter pecan.
