This is a nice place to spend an afternoon watching boats and pelicans. Lots of shell shops and ice cream parlors. I recommend the shaved Ice shop next to the tea exchange. Parking garage is $3 per hour.

Went there based on a suggestion from our daughter's friend. Meh. It's worth going once. Lots of shopping, and a bit touristy, but I am not complaining.

Sorry took me so long I did not see the email. We did not stay at John’s Pass so I have no idea what accommodations are available or the services that they provide sorry about that.
