    Best Shopping
    Cool outdoor shopping center. A ton of restaurants and bars and stores to choose from! Almost spent all my money there 🥴 would definitely recommend it to anyone in the area. It’s an awesome way to spend the day if you’re burnt out on the beaches

    Bascially a mall
    Pier Park is basically an outdoor mall, with lots of chain restaurants and shopping venues. With that in mind, though, it is outdoors, and it's not a bad way to spend some time in the area if you want to get away from the beach. Teens, in particular, seem to love the place.

    Ok way to spend the day
    Mostly souvenir shops and a few restaurants and places to get ice cream. Also has the Skywheel and some other activities for kids. We usually go after we’re done for the day at the beach and walk around. It’s something to do to occupy your time when not at the beach.

    Shopping and fun for everyone
    Pier Park is an outdoor shopping area in Panama City Beach that has something for everyone. There are plenty of shops with souvenirs, clothing, sweet treats, restaurants (Pampano Joe’s, The Back Porch, Margaritaville, and Kilwin’s), and even a few rides (Skywheel, etc.).

    Spend some time at the pier
    The pier is lovely. Free entry and lots of folks walking around. Photo opportunity for sure. Nice restaurants nearby and parking was a snap. We had my favorite meal sitting near the pier. Blackened mahi-mahi tacos that were the best I’ve ever tasted.

    Nice area
    Pier Park is a fairly large area with a variety of shopping and dining. We had dinner and walked around afterwards. It's nicely designed and has some nicer stores.......not all cheap beach places. It's worth visiting.

    Trick or treating event was so nice for Halloween!
    It was first time the kids missed Halloween at home. We were worried they wouldn’t have anything to do and miss out on trick or treating. The fact that pier park had ALL the stores give out candy and dress up was so nice!! They got just as much candy if not more than they would have gotten at home!

    Many food choices plus mini golf and the Sky Wheel
    Lots of free parking. Many choices for lunch and dinner plus two outstanding ice cream shops. Cinnabon too! We went on the Sky Wheel (senior discount came to $38 for two) which gives you 4 revolutions. The photo package was $24 but makes for a cool souvenir. The only negative was hitting your head when entering the cars. We were not the only ones. We also wanted to try the fun looking mini golf course but we ran out of time. This is a really good stop along your travels. We hope to come back one day.

I sure wish that I could give a -5 circle review because this place is TERRIBLE. They absolutely scammed my daughter into getting a braid in her hair by telling her that it would cost around $30, but when it came time to check out it was over $60 because they had put in fake extensions and didn't mention anything about it before or while it was happening. This place makes money by blatantly scamming and lying to children and it is completely uneithical and should be looked into. I would also like to add that the product they use is easily purchased at any Dollar General store in the country. We went to purchase the exact same products and spent $7.87. How is it possible that they can legally quote one price (that is already extremely inflated) but then actually charge double once the work is done? This place is not worth spending a penny at, definitely be forewarned that they WILL DEFINITELY scam you in the end.

Most of the places we wanted to visit were indefinitely or permanently closed, such as The Yard Milkshake restaurant or the I Love Sugar Candy store. There were others, but it was super frustrating that the website it not updated. If stores are permanently closed or indefinitely closed, there should be a notice on the Pier Park website. Super frustrating to get there and walk all the way down for nothing.

We came here after doing an airboat ride. We had a large group so it was nice to split up and check out the shops. All typical Florida Souvenir stores with over priced crap. My daughter got a basic tshirt from one of the stores and after wearing it the next day the heat transfer image was peeling off. The shirt was $24 so over priced. They charge you $3pp to walk out to the pier so we opted out of doing that. The Ron Jon surf shop is a must to shop at. They have super cute logo tops and seem better quality then the ones you buy at the typical Souvenir shop. Lots of dining and treat choices but be prepared to spend lots of money.

Average shopping is what you can do. Books, clothing, funny hats, food and gimmicks are what you can buy. As for eating, there is no truffle oil, cans of marzipan, or beluga caviar here, only maybe smoked tuna dip and those claws torn off crabs. Forget about fresh corn on the cob: by the time the corn gets up here from Mexico it has been stale for days. Is there cotton candy? Yes, over by the ferris wheel where you can stir up your lunch a bit. Remember this: if you live in Georgia or Alabama you are welcome here. If you live in PCB itself or Panama City, you are probably tired of this place and wary of its promise. Your dollars can go farther down the road in Mexico Beach or Port St. Joe.

The shopping and restaurants are great. Should be s walking only mall. Parking lot has lots of parking.
Matter of time before someone ran over. Endless vehicles cruising; music full volume, revving engines to draw attention. 50/50 if they stop for you in cross walk

This is exactly what you would expect. It had the all the same chain stores you normally see in tourist towns, especially those in tropical areas, along with a few smaller stores. There really wasn't a place to get cheap PCB shirts like we had hoped. No need buying $20 shirts to take back to all the nieces and nephews when they just outgrow them by the next year. There were some reasonably priced ones, but I'm used to finding bargains in a few shops.

The only thing I really wanted to do was go to Del Sol to get a new pair of glasses and at that I succeeded.

Shops, restaurants, game-type rooms and activities, and other touristy offerings. It didn’t help that our timing coincided with Spring Break. I understand the need to blow off steam from stressful college life, but the immaturity of some of today’s youth frankly staggers me. One such Einstein sat in his muscle car at an intersection loudly revving the engine and spinning the wheels causing quite a noise, burning rubber on the road, and causing smoke to completely cover the automobile. If his intention was to draw a crowd - mission accomplished. I am sure his parents are proud.

The hair wrap kiosks at pier park in front of movie theater are a rip off. Stay away. Very rude employees. 3.99 for an inch of hair wrap. Also come out the day after. No refunds. English terrible. Others warned me I was dumb to ignore. They are ripping people off terrible business ethics.

Dropped in for quick trim for me and hubby. Sheila gave me a great wash with a little neck and temple massage, great cut, Used my name several times while we talked, never had that before. Good cuts, good price, and recommendations for best oysters around!

My last visit to Disney World was about 20 years ago, but this shopping street felt like being @ Disney World, at least during that era if it has changed. A little more intimate here at Pier Park, but otherwise felt so similar. We went specifically to visit Kilwin's but it is obvious that if we wanted other things, except cigars, they were probably available here. If you like to wander in and out of various stores looking at things, you'll have a blast here.

I wouldn't try coming here in the summer crowds, but in January, it was easy to do what we wanted, which was park near (behind the buildings) and stop by 1 store and then leave quickly. The directory did not list a cigar shop or we would have visited that too.
