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!

Very nice place to visit... Lots of different places to eat. Very nice to just go sit and watch the ocean. Very relaxing

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

We enjoyed walking through the shops - they have a neat flag store there if you are into flags. They had fireworks Wednesday night when we were there - only lasted about 8 minutes, but well worth watching! A few restaurants on the boardwalk if you are hungry.

White sandy gulf beaches, fishing pier, plenty of room, with several shops, restaurants & bars adjacent to the beach. Several public picnic areas with roofs for resting or eating snacks away from the sand in the shade. Sheriff's office located there for safety.

This Boardwalk was a fantastic place to spend a day! The Boardwalk itself consists of several different restaurants (the Crab Shack is great!) and other shops that contain anything you could need. The beach itself is absolutely gorgeous! Soft, white sands cover the area, volleyball courts are there if you want to play, and the beach itself is very well-kept... More

Good place to take the family for a on the beach restaurant experience. There are many choices here and also some shops and access to the beach and pier after your meal.

We visited the boardwalk hoping for some evening family entertainment. We did find a restaurant for dinner and the kids played on the playground on the beach. Otherwise there wasn't much happening here. There are a small number of restaurants and even smaller number of shops. Beyond that there isn't much here for family entertainment.

Nice hangout. When you see a lot of locals coming in, you know that you've found a good place. They have a great drink menu.
