Overview
More
The "Pass", as locals refer to it, was created by a hurricane on September 27, 1848. A pirate, John Levique, made the first passage through the newly created pass. Hence the name, Johns Pass. Located on the waterfront at Johns Pass, this quaint turn-of-the-century fishing village is Pinellas County's #1 tourist attraction. Over one hundred merchants inhabit the Village with unique retail shopping, a variety of restaurants, the local fishing fleet, dolphin watching and shelling tours, boat rentals, parasailing and jet skiing.

We have been stopping off here for many years and still find it worth a visit. Last year we found a boat trip out to an uninhabited island that blew us away. Interesting shops, bars, food and trips. Stop off and see for yourself

Love the pier, but why did all the shops close by 9 on a Saturday night. Boardwalk grill has the best lobster roll around.

Parking is expensive. Most shops are cheesy. There are a few shops that carries nicer things but for most it's the typical tourist stuff. The boardwalk part is actually very short. You go once, you see it and you leave. Good place to go for...More
