“It has lots of shops, duty free purchases and a great chocolate shop”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

This is a long street and has many shops, jewelry stores, restaurants, Planet Paradise Yoda Guy movie museum (do not miss this) on a side street a great chocolate shop (really worth it if you like chocolate), cheap liquor (again best deals on the side streets), electronics stores and much more. I think you can buy anything that exists here. The Chinese restaurant across from Yoda guy was great and we ate there three times. You need to compare prices as some shops try and overcharge and others are really good deals.

“Sparkling Treasures everywhere!!”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

If you like jewelry shopping, then you will be completely satisfied. The choices are endless and the prices are fantastic. If you get the chance and are visiting on a cruise, take in the boardwalk and sample some of the restaurants along the way. The Frontstreet area is picturesque, and the shopping is endless.

“smart shoping”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

Frontstreet in Phili[sburg has great shops. All the best for ladies, and one shop not found often on the islands-a Harley Davidson S
hop where you can buy their official clothing.

“Frontstreet in Phillipsburg”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

My husband and I walked down Frontstreet many times. We visited two casinos and went in to many shops searching for something to bring home to our grandchildren (bongo drum, bracelet and maracas). There is a Mcdonalds we ate at, which was good!

“If you like to shop, this is the place to be!”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

My daughters, early 20s, found that jewellery, clothes, electronics and many other things they like were relatively cheap here and they took advantage of it. Make sure to stop by Au Petit Café tucked in a secluded spot. One of the best frozen lattés and pina coladas we have tasted. The owner/manager is wonderful!
