We are locals who go to Beach Place fairly regularly. It's a four-story outdoor mall, always a fun place to hang out, since there are beach shops and great places to eat. We like Da Big Kahuna, which has a live (free) Polynesian dancing show on Friday nights at 8:00. We also like Lulu's Bait Shack, and Soprano's Dueling Pianos is a lot of fun -- though the performers get saltier as the evening progresses. Some of the restaurants feature balcony seating with pretty awesome views of the beach and the water. Park underground, get your ticket validated at one of the restaurants, and you'll save a few bucks. The beach is an easy walk across the street, and later you can walk south down U.S. 1 to find more restaurants and shops, along with the occasional quirky street performer. All in all, Beach Place is a great destination!
