  • This place is really beautiful, made for tourists. It is a kind of shopping mall (a great site) with outdoor stores. Each store has a different color. It's really beautiful. It has parking lots where is the mall (that is closed to any mall building). You have several famous shops there. This outdoor mall also has cinemas, games for kids and very good restaurants. There is information center tourists where you get discounts. Very good place!

  • This place has a great atmosphere. Nice variety of stores without having to pay crazy high prices. We love The Grande for movies. Lots of things to do Texas Roadhouse is really good. 
  • Numerous shops to visit. Quite a bit of walking. Several different kinds of restaurants. Several restaurants serve alcohol too. Very pretty place to just walk around and window shop.

  • The World's Most Beautiful Beaches, Panama City Beach and adjacent beaches are right across the street from this family friendly shopping and dining experience. You can spend a whole day at Pier Park and not have visited all of its amenities. From family friendly restaurants, to concerts, you name it, you can find it at Pier Park. This is a lively experience for everyone. Something just for children? Check! (Miracle Strip) Gaming and eating combined? Check! (Dave and Buster's) I could go on and on but that would ruin the experience for you. Just know that you will have a blast at Pier Park. Oh, and the 4th of July? Out of this world crazy good!!
  • I was surprised by this place, its very nice and clean and it seems to go on and on. They have pretty much every store you could want. I went in the off season and it was busy but not packed like I'm sure it is all summer long.
  • If you love shopping, having some drinks, listening to bands, while enjoying the good old florida sun....well then pier park is for you. It has many shops, places to eat, a Dave and Busters to play some games and bars for drinks and bands. I definitely would recommend this to anyone of all ages. Tons of parking and they even have some little trolleys to help get you to and from your car if you need them.
  • We had so much fun here. A ton of unique little shops, my favorite being the olive oil/balsamic vinegar shop. They've got franchise stores on one side, and local niche stores on the other. I think we walked Into all of them. The park itself is very pretty and the courtyard near the Starbucks was very pretty. A highlight of my vacation there.
  • I always love a Simon's Mall, they have the best selection of stores as does Pier Park and I love that it's all outside shopping center so you can get a good walk while literally across the street from the beach and pier. They also have a good deal of activities on the weekends, an awesome fireworks show on Fourth of July and a great beach ball drop/fireworks on New Years Eve
