Overview
More
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.

I love visiting John's Pass every time I'm in St. Pete's. There are many nice little shops, restaurants and bars that are all worth visiting. If your lucky, you can maybe see some dolphin's while you're walking on the boardwalk.

Just about 1/2 mile or less. Within walking distance, according to your own ability. There is a PSTA trolley/bus that runs that route.
