The white sand beach was awesome. Great restaurants and we loved the gellato. Some of the restaurants are closed Monday - Thursday off season.

This is a nice area to eat and watch the sunset. We sat on the deck of Rockin' Tacos and it was beautiful. The music was really loud, but we still enjoyed ourselves.

Wonderful places to eat, drink, and several dolphin cruises! You can't beat just walking around and enjoying that beautiful water while planning your next adventure at the Gulf!

Someone had told us about walking down on the pier on the boardwalk. There were a lot of shops, eats and zip line. Evenings would be even better for things to do. They were setting up for bands and such. Nice relaxing walk and views.

We stopped to check it out while it was raining. Even on the bottom level it seemed rain was still coming through. It has a few shops, nothing significant but does have variety of restaurants. Worth stopping by to check out.

The boardwalk is beautiful, there is a volleyball court, big playground for the kids and easy access to the beautiful beach. However, the 2-3 stores are just overpriced souvenir stores. Shop at the Harbor Village and you will have more quality selections-probably still overpriced!

We were in the area looking for a not-so-crowded are to walk around. It's nice and has a few restaurants to choose from while also still being close to the beach. It was close to our hotel too.

This is tourist central but fun. There are many different shops and restaurants. The playground is great and it is always full of kids!
