Some of the shops are interesting and we did make some purchases this visit. However, the walkways where all the trees overhand seemed dark and "tired" this time. Trees needs to be opened up to let in the sunshine in various places. Some empty shops...More

Two level, open air shopping center set in several buildings. Some good places we enjoyed Duck Pizza, a nut store, Mystic Jewelry, and an olive oil store. There were a few benches to rest outside the shops. There is parking in a garage underneath, but...More

The original shopping area at Duck. Interesting small mom and pop shops offering an eclectic mix of souvenirs, clothes and house items. Very vacation beach feel.

We stumbled on this little area and we were intrigued. The bookstore was very nice, tons of great books and friendly staff. However, do NOT eat at Heart restaurant. It was awful. An order of hush puppies came out- all 5 of them, undercooked and...More
