  • I always enjoy walking through Pier Park after a nice time at the beach. The stores and restaurants are all pretty much the same every time but I enjoy the walk through. If you go during certain times of the year, there are nice events that occur. I have witnessed when "The Pirates" were there and it was pretty cool seeing everyone get into character with costumes. They also had a parade where they hand out necklaces and such for the kids.
  • Has multiple shops for multiple tastes while keeping the beach theme throughout the mall. Probably is the hang out spot for kids around the area, usually is pretty busy in the warm months. The giant beach ball by the theater is pretty cool too. They also host a ball drop during New year's which is awesome. Pier park is definitely a tourist destination for coming to PCB.
  • The whole area is full of interesting and unique shops and restaurants. The popcorn shop has become a favorite stop for my wife and I as well as the As seen on TV store. Everything is well lit and feels like a safe family friendly environment. The only thing I don't recommend, for the people of age, is a stop at Tootsies specifically during new years. The $60 cover charge is a bit outrageous and off putting
  • No wonder this is a hot spot for tourists! We've lived in the area for two years and just now visited for the first time. It's packed with shopping, entertainment, and food options and there is also a pier. Dave and Busters was bustling inside, even though it was off season. We had a nice afternoon walking around.
  • Vast variety of retail stores and specialty stores. Nice scenery for a outside mall. Clean public restrooms. Parking can be a bit of a pain. Never had a bad experience there I've avoided Sping Break that might have contributed to the lack of negative experiences.
