“great music, we saw dolphins”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014

This boardwalk and area is just fun... Walking the boardwalk we saw dolphins, we also so trucks of fish being backed in crushed ice, lots of grouper fish being packed. Fun bars and restaurants and shops, you do pay to park here, but it was not a lot.. feed a meter. They have Bubba Shrimp here, but we did not go here is it is much more expense than The Freezer which we had just been to a few days prior. Great way to spend a evening highly recommend it.

Glad you had a great time. If you're still in town, that place that unloaded the fish (Wild Seafood Company) now has a retail shop on the water. Get fresh-off-the-boat grouper, snapper and other seasonal fish. Hope we see you again!

“Great for an afternoon stroll.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014 via mobile

Lots of cute shops. Much larger than it appears from the road. Cute places to sit for a drink and to "people" watch. Yummy frozen custard. Even an old-fashioned arcade!!

Welcome to the area (I assume you're new with just one review). If you're staying through the summer, check out our events catered toward Pinellas County residents. Have a good one!

“Shopping good for all”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

John's Pass was shown to us by friends and we were so impressed that we went back to see what we missed. The shops are touristy but there is a variety for everyone. The prices in most stores are very reasonable and it is a must to do the whole strip or you will miss stores like "The Leather Shoppe" that has outstanding prices. There is a variety of eating places sure to please everyone. There is a paid parking lot that most times is not hard to find a spot. This area is a must to visit
