    Pier Park is GROWING!

    The last few months at Pier Park have been amazing. The growth that we are experiencing is so exciting. We no longer HAVE to drive far for spectacular shopping choices.

    Miracle Strip Amusement Park is growing by leaps and bounds, adding new rides each week! The admission to the park is free to walk around. I suggest heading out and taking a walk around to see what all they have to offer. I have heard that their funnel cakes are amazing!

    Dave and Buster's just opened yesterday across from Miracle Strip Amusement Park and they offer tons of fun and great food! I have been to one in Nashville, TN once, so I hope to try out our new one asap and post a review.

    Pier Park North looks to be an exciting array of restaurants and shopping, as well as a dental clinic and a nails spa. Here is the list of confirmed businesses in the new Pier Park North:
    Dick's Sporting Goods (already open)
    Rooms to Go (already open)
    Chipotle Mexican Grill
    Texas Roadhouse
    Joe's Crab Shack
    Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt-not confirmed (but reported by several papers)
    Men's Warehouse
    Shoe Carnival
    Bed Bath and Beyond
    Pier 1
    Sweet Frog's Frozen Yogurt
    Mattress Firm
    Verizon Wireless
    Lee Nails Spa
    Aspen Dental Clinic

    Just across the street, In the Walmart parking lot, a new Panda Express and McDonald's have been built. This adds even MORE new restaurants to our menu options at great prices. I am not a fan of McDonalds...but for drinks and ice cream, I respect their prices.

    In the regular Pier Park area, new stores have opened recently as well. The Pita Pit, Chicken Salad Chick, French Fry Heaven (coming soon), Pink Narcissus, and Pompano Joe's.

    What more could you ask for in a shopping heaven? Add all of these to the already awesome shopping and dining available and we have it ALL! Hope you plan your trip to PCB soon and of course, hit Pier Park while you are here!

    Printable Coupons!

    Be sure to check out our printable coupons tab. There are tons of coupons to be found on there and sure to save you lots of $$$....Most of the larger restaurants and attractions have some sort of coupon that you can use on your vacation. Also, your condo or hotel should have coupon booklets around the lobby area to use. I keep a book or two in my car at all times so that I am always prepared with a coupon if we decide to stop somewhere. Happy vacation couponing!
