If you need to cross feeding an alligator off your animal bucket list, The Alligator & Wildlife Discovery Center is right there. You can try the floating tiki bar or you can also grab lunch or some ice cream and sit and watch the dolphins from the boardwalk.

There are fishing charters, dolphin tours, small cruises, an arcade, sunset cruise, boat rentals, jet ski rentals, eco tours, parasailing and even a pirate ship tour. Or you can relax and get a tan at the beach if your looking to relax. 

Don’t forget to check the local calendar for any special events or festivals taking place throughout the year. These events often feature live music, food, and entertainment. Additionally, frequent live performances and street entertainment, particularly during holidays and weekends, enrich the boardwalk experience.

For dinner you can get Bubba Gump Shrimp Company or Hooters. Once a month on the last Friday of the month Schulleys has a “Final Friday” event where you can enjoy live music, great food, and chilled drinks. Have some fun in the sun and add John’s Pass Village & Boardwalk to your Florida Bucket List!
