The "Pass", as locals refer to it, was created by a hurricane on September 27, 1848. A pirate, John Levique, made the first passage through the newly created pass. Hence the name, Johns Pass. Located on the waterfront at Johns Pass, this quaint turn-of-the-century fishing village is Pinellas County's #1 tourist attraction. Over one hundred merchants inhabit the Village with unique retail shopping, a variety of restaurants, the local fishing fleet, dolphin watching and shelling tours, boat rentals, parasailing and jet skiing.

We enjoyed walking around the the different shops. Only draw back for us was we were HOT! Not that it is the fault of the market since it was August in FL but many of the stores had AC which were a life saver.

We visited John's Pass almost daily while staying in the area. There is lots to see and do. I found the area is not open very late though. Most businesses close at 10pm and some much earlier.

There is not a great deal of beach shops in the area. It was nice to be able to walk store to store and shop for souvenirs. Shopping with a couple of places to eat.
