We stumbled upon the wharf area today! Super neat! Was able to ride the ferries wheel with the kids and go in and out of smoke of the shops. There are dining options but most appeared to be nice restaurants and we wanted something more casual. Very nice shops and enjoyable to walk around

The Wharf is a great place to take in a concert, do some shopping, or attend and event at the Convention Center. Condos to stay in, a water park, and take in a movie. One could stay a week at The Wharf and never have to leave.

Spent time here on New Year's Eve for the 3 band event. We had fun walking around and then having drinks in Villiaggio Grill. Everything is lit up, including the big Ferris wheel. The atmosphere is festive and we saw many families enjoying their New Year's Eve. The fireworks at midnight were spectacular!!

Dinner at the Sugar Shack was perfect during the short rain shower. Service was as expected and the food far exceeded what you would expect. We were very glad we stopped in. Dining was very casual. They have a wide variety of deserts and candy as well.

We went in the late evening for the Ferris wheel and grab some drinks, however most restaurants close at 9-10pm. Being a tourist area I expected a 10:30 - 11pm closing time, you know for drinks. I really like the synchronized music/light show.

We were looking to see and do something different for the evening as we were water logged between the beach and the rain. It was a well kept place with some nice stores. The light and music show was cool with the palm trees. They have a huge Ferris wheel. Worth seeing.

Wishing we had taken more time to check this out. The Ferris wheel was being worked on but the light show and the music was great. We would have liked to explore more of it. The theater was nice and comfortable.

We came on a Tuesday night after dinner to check it out. The light show ended up being just changing Christmas lights set to music on palm trees. The kids (11 and 14) said "We get it" and asked to go ahead and go. We played a round of mini golf ($7/person) beforehand and had fun. There are lots of...

Stayed at the Wharf #905 for 3 days in order to see Jimmy Buffett after Memorial Day Weekend. We booked through Laura’s Vacation Rentals – and it was reasonably priced and the staff was easy to work with. The 2 BR / 2 BA room was clean, large, up to date with latest amenities, had free Wi-Fi, and a great...

“Can't beat for seeing a concert at the Amphitheater - it's right across the street”

“I have stayed in many of these condos. I love 525 and 901 the corner units are great for large groups and most of them have a bonus room.”

“If you are staying during a concert expect to hear the music from the amphitheater. That may be a turn off to some but we enjoyed hearing the music. Staying on the second or third floors is easier to navigate with the parking garage but a stay on any floor is really no problem.”
