It's a fun place to bicycle - bike paths, water fountains, shaded rest stops as well as all sorts of shops to go in.
They have bike racks all over so you can lock up your bike.

Always enjoy Periwinkle Way and it's cute shops. They are filled with everything from the touristy t-shirt shops that everyone wants to bring home to the nicer shops filled with jewelry from artisans We always drop in at Synergy which is filled with Life is Good items and come out with 2 or 3 things. Today we also left with a couple of dresses from one of the shops along with some "kitschy" napkins. Definitely worth a couple hours stop to stroll through the area and have a quick bite. We also stopped in at "She Sells Sea Shells" and though the counter "couple" were a bit abrupt in their handling of two of their customers (maybe a smile would help their tone of voice) the handmade shell items are always fun to look at (though a little pricey) and the kids always enjoy picking up a couple of shells/starfish or seahorse to take home with them.

A good place to frequent when you're tired of the beach - wait... people get tired of the beach? The outdoor shopping area is comprised of a series of (mostly) women's clothing stores with island clothing - sun dresses, sun hats, swimsuits, flip-flops.

The shops here are cute and unique but not for beach goers. Most people tend to stay on the beach and venture out at night to eat and shop. Unfortunately, these shops are all completely closed by 6pm! Good to go to on a rainy day or if you don't like being out on the beach or in the sun.

We had a great time during the rain - probably spent too much money - but picked up some good stuff. Periwinkle Way was not what I imagined - the stores are in small plazas all spread out up and down the road. But actually for people used to mall type shopping - it was OK. Traffic is very heavy, so either ride your bike and park the car and walk around.
