$3 per person is a very small amount to pay for the amazing beautiful views you will experience. It's a very long pier but has benches all along the way. Views of PCB and the gorgeous beaches along the way. You are sure to spot some interesting creatures along the way in the water. Fisherman are enjoying their daily catches.... More

A great place to fish while you're at the beach - no license needed - and an opportunity to catch redfish, king mackerel, tarpon, sailfish, sharks, etc - Great Fun for the fishermen

I know it sounds like a lot from a simple pier, but Russell-Fields City Pier is NOT a simple pier. This loooooong pier is open 24/7 and there is a minimal admission charge to gain access. It's quite popular during the day for fisherman and you might have to endure some "fishy" smells. But just watching them pull in their... More

very beautiful, loved watching all the persons fishing but the smell of old bait left lying around was a bit much at times. but we were on the ocean and there were plenty of people fishing off the pier so not horribly disgusted with the smell. lol

Get your walking shoes on before you tackle this pier. Luckily there are benches at intervals. I saw my very first dolphin from this pier. The view is awesome. Loved it. Next time I'm bringing a pole!

We love walking out on the pier at sunset on our trips to watch the fishermen and the fish. This is one of my kids (9 & 5) favorite things to do because you can usually spot some dolphins swimming around and the fishermen always enjoy showing off their catch.

Let's you feel up close and personal! Great view especially at sunset. We were there over July 4th and what a show did they put on. Consideration needs to be taken if you have ambulatory issues. It is a long walk to the end if you do however it is H/A.
