  • DOG-FRIENDLY! 🐶 Brought my dog here last time. The stores we went to were all welcoming. Some even offered treats and water. All of the restaurants with outdoor seating are dog friendly. Then of course there's a dog-friendly section of beach right across the street. Just wish they had a fenced in area so I could've let him off the leash.
  • Tons to do and see. Can be a bit pricey but you won't be board . I love the outdoor shopping experience and of course tootsies! The actual pier is pretty cool to walk out on. The water is crystal clear and we saw lots of sea life. There's a small fishing and tackle store to walk through to go onto the pier and the staff working was very nice.
  • So many fun stores and restaurants. We're here during the off-season so parking is not an issue. It's great to walk around. The beach is just a hop across the street. The whole area is well kept and clean. We've enjoyed each visit here and always find something new to see.
  • I love walking and shopping at the pier park there is a great ice cream shop that I absolutely loved. Everyone was so nice and polite in all the businesses they were all ready to assist me and my family and friends. I would definitely recommend anyone to definitely stop at the pier park.
  • Great place to spend the day with lots to do. Many places to dine and lots of stores to shop at. A theater to watch IMAX and an a nice amphitheater close by. Lots of parking. Close to the beach also. Daytime security routinely patrols around. Family oriented with a relaxing atmosphere.
