It holds so many good restaurants, shops and bars and just a few place to meander between all the beach time. I will touch on some of the highlights I found during my trips to Johns Pass.
Johns Pass Village and Boardwalk is just a few short miles over the bridge from Treasure Island.

The boardwalk itself is a great attraction unto itself. You can stroll along with the shops on one side and the harbor on the other. Its always a great idea to stop and recharge over a grouper sandwich and cold beer whenever you find a few seats available. The view of the harbor is full of activity. It has pirate and fishing charters, as well as jet skis all for rent. But the best entertainment is to watch the pelicans sitting on the pylons or even better is the dolphins that play in the bay as well.
The friendly fisherman is a great place to eat and people watch right on the boardwalk. It has the main restaurant on the boardwalk and then a lower section closer to the water. On my last trip it was a week before Christmas and we were able to sit at the lower section and watch the boat parade. It was about an hour of watching all types of sailing and motor boats cruise by with lights and sounds for the holiday. Be sure to get there early for dinner and you can keep your seats for drinks while you watch the parade.
It is located off the boardwalk in the shops behind the boardwalk.
There is metered parking in the middle of the shopping area and on the streets so you can just go there or spend the day. Be sure to pick up the signature mix called Vic's Garlic Fix, it goes great on everything. They make everything in house and have the most amazing collection of rubs, marinades, salts and teas.
If you enjoy recreational fishing, the other side of the boardwalk has a jetty that doesn't require a fishing license. I was able to rent a fishing pole and tackle for the day from Johnny's Bait and Tackle on Treasure Island. It was great to stand along the rocks and in the water and fish in December.
