Cannot visit this part of Florida without a trip to John's Pass and the shops. Lots of variety of shops, plenty of restaurant choices but if going to visit for an extended period of time, more than a couple of hours, recommend parking in the garage to eliminate trips back to the parking meter and possibly a parking ticket.

A nice area to walk, dine and take it all in. Plenty of restaurants for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack and drinks. Many shops to meander and a good variety of products. Very clean, good parking, stairs, walkways, ramps, handrails, bathrooms, etc. Beautiful boardwalk environment for children, family, couples, friends or some solo time.

We had a memorable time here! Shopping, cigars, beer, ice cream, tarot card readings, tattoos, food, thirst, jewelry...it's all fun!

Nice place to visit and spend some time as well as money. Cool shops, nice places to eat and not to forget cool attractions to do such as fishing, deep sea fishing, boat rides and jet-ski to rent. Would go back any time.

There are shoppes, both boutiques and typical souvenir stuff. Love to people watch. Really enjoyed Bubba Gumps. This is a must-do in the area.

My husband and I visited John's Pass last week and it was not what I was expecting. It was clean, the people were friendly, they have plenty of places to sit, and clean bathrooms. They did have a ton of shops so you could probably spend half a day there.

John's Pass was a nice surprise. so many quaint shops, and ready access to deep sea fishing and any water sport rentals you can imagine. Great place to spend an afternoon, or a day.

During our 3 week stay in St Pete's Beach, my wife and I had the opportunity to visit Johns Pass four times. Every time was a different experience whether it was a different seafood meal, a newly discovered souvenir or dress shop or a micro brewery giving free samples. It was interesting watching and talking to the ladies and gentlemen... More
