When people travel for leisure, they typically have definite items on the itinerary such as entertainment, attractions, restaurants and ultimately, shopping. If your itinerary takes you to Florida’s Panhandle and Sandestin Shopping in particular, then your shopping needs will be fulfilled at Grand Boulevard. The entire complex contains more than 700,000 square feet of retail shops, restaurants, and permanent residences. Located on U.S. Highway 98 between Miramar Beach and Santa Rosa Beach, Grand Boulevard at Sandestin is one of the region’s premier shopping destinations.

Retail Therapy With Sandestin Shopping

Grand Boulevard has familiar retail stores such as Pottery Barn, Orvis, Williams & Sonoma, Anthropologie and Sunglass Hut; however, the shopping center still offers a selection of local shops and boutiques. Visit Fusion Art Glass to purchase exquisite sculptures, fine art and artisanal glassware, or The Jewel for equally stunning jewelry from world-renowned designers. These are just two of the local purveyors of fine goods at this Miramar attraction. If you are searching for beach gear, Billabong, Chubbies and Ophelia will provide all the swimwear, shorts and surfboards you need. When finished with entering and exiting retail shops, don’t forget to make one last stop at Kilwin’s for some handmade chocolates.

Where to Eat

In addition to the wide variety of retail options, Grand Boulevard at Sandestin provides an extensive selection of restaurants and eateries. Moreover, the restaurants at Grand Boulevard highlight better-than-average spots such as Grimaldi’s Pizzeria, Fleming’s Steakhouse and P.F. Chang’s. If you seek a more local flavor, The Craft Bar is an excellent choice for local beers and farm-to-table dishes. If wine is your drink of choice, Vin’Tij offers excellent varietals by the bottle and by the glass. At Emeril’s, visitors can dine at one of the popular TV chef’s restaurants with dishes inspired by the Italian coastline. However, one of the most recommended restaurants at Grand Boulevard is Everkrisp. Here, the kitchen serves healthy food that is extremely decadent in the best way possible. From avocado toast to short-rib sandwiches, every item is innovative as well as tasty at this Miramar attraction.
