Much of the seating was on one level making viewing difficult. Handicapped parking was very limited.

Hello grannyohio2016, Thank you for attending the cheer competition at the ECCC. I imagine you were here to see your grandchild/children perform. I am sure they were amazing and I hope you enjoyed your time on the Emerald Coast and got to enjoy our sugar white sand and emerald green water while you were here. Along with the handicap parking...

Various venues book this center from business seminars to a Greek Festival. Satisfaction depends on the venue. We enjoy the annual Greek Festival there. The handicapped access is not up to the level one would expect from a center such as this. Lengthy walking is often required due to inadequate handicapped parking and the handicapped entrances being far from the... More

Hi Pamela, I understand your frustration. It is a terrible feeling when you cannot easily access a building. I am curious to know if you used our elevator which is located at the north end of the under building parking. There is a long row of handicap parking right next to it. The elevator takes you right to the north... More

In town for dance competition and all staff were very kind and helpful. Entire property very clean, except they were dealing with some minor sprinkler system leak and had a few garbage cans around in strategic locations. Otherwise, very nice facility. Loved parking underneath to keep the car from sweltering.
