“Pleasant and relaxing place to shop.”
Reviewed November 28, 2013

Visited this shopping mall several times during our stay in Destin in November. Stores open everyday from around 10am. It has a feel good factor about it with plenty of room to walk and cafés to sit in. Particularly liked the small up-market train suitable both for adults and children. There is an AMC cinema complex showing evening and matinee films and play area for children.
The 'Build a Bear' store is wonderful with prices at least a third cheaper than at home in UK. Lots of sale bargains available during our visit. Easy to park.

“Large outdoor mall”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

Large outdoor mall in a convenient Destin location with a large variety of stores and places to eat. Very clean and a nice place to stroll in the beautiful weather. There is a large AMC theater there also.

“Upscale But has Something for Everyone”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

Although many of the shops are upscale, there are also the usual allotment of reasonably priced candy shops, coffee shops, restaurants, a movie theater and of course the Bass Pro Shops. We usually don't buy much but it's still a fun place to stroll and people watch. There's also a splash pad for the kids and a playground with soft / padded props for the kids to climb on. They have a kiddie train ride for $4 a person but if you keep an eye out you may find a discount coupon in one of the many coupon books in the shops. The grounds are very pretty with lush foliage and cobblestone sidewalks and music playing to add to the experience. It's particularly pretty at night with lighting in the trees and on the buildings. They're also in the process of constructing a major expansion that will include a carnival-type bowling alley and other stores so we'll be sure to come back.

“Clean, lots of nice shops”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

Another touristy strip mall kinda place, but was clean and had a real new feeling. Construction is going on, but is unobstructive. Good place to go to do a little shopping and maybe catch a movie. Not crowded while we were there after Labor day.
