“Pretty… Touristy”
Reviewed April 30, 2014

pretty area, well-kept, but extremely, I mean extremely touristy… I prefer other areas of Florida that are less developed, but still nice.

4 stars? I would give it 3 but then again I don't want people to think it isn't nice (especially if you don't mind overdeveloped beach CITIES!)

“what you would expect from street vendors”
Reviewed April 28, 2014

A lot of locals "hanging around", but good for a quick pass through. We found some good gifts to buy our college age sons.

“Go in the evening”
Reviewed April 26, 2014

We were there in mid April. Reliable weather at that time of the year. There are the typical jugglers and entertainers in the evening. Very safe, family orientated area.

“Not that exciting...”
Reviewed April 25, 2014

I had this on our 'to do' list after reading trip advisor reviews. It is just down from our hotel so we walked down after dinner. It is really just a pier. To get to the end you have to pay 1.00 per person. We chose to, and walked to the end. All that was there was local fisherman and some pelicans. It was not worth it. It is a pier. At dusk, a lot of vendors show up and try to sell all their homemade goods. There are some street entertainers as well. A small playground is at the entrance of the pier. It wasn't that exciting. I didn't buy anything, and probably wouldn't go back.

“It's a Pier... Don't get too excited”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

This pier may be the cornerstone of the beach, but it is just a pier. The pier has plenty of merchants selling unique and beach related items, which is fun if you like shopping. At the end of the pier is a fishing platform, which many swear by. You can rent tackle and buy bait relatively cheap, and you don't have to have a license to fish there. The wooden structure itself is in good shape and it is a clean, family atmosphere. But there is nothing else there, and other attractions in the area offer much more.
