  • The Island is a really neat place. There are restaurants, shops, an arcade and a couple of small rides. Not to mention the water-fountain show and the sky wheel, both which are all lit up at night wit...  more »
  • The day we went was hot. We went expecting shops and some eateries. There are more restaurants than shops, or so it seems. The kids enjoyed the airial experience and the cost was reasonable. The tram ...  more »

  • Parking is a nightmare, however a tram service is offered. Takes you right into the heart of the Island. Very considerate. My family ate at Paula Dean's restaurant and was highly impressed. A lot of food that was very tasty. There is plenty of places to sit and just people watch and tons of great shops to spend your money at. We would definitely visit again!
  • We had a blast here with our young son! The views from the Wheel are amazing, it's a must do! Tons of rides for kids & adults of all ages! Trolley service to & from the parking lot was fun, too! The trolley drivers were so nice, as we're all the staff at the ticket office & the ride operators. Southern hospitality & tons of fun, food & shopping! The Island is definitely a must do if you're in the area!
  • The island is so wonderful. There's plenty of parking in the big parking lot. It's always fun to ride the tram instead of walking. There are so many stores that I can't visit them all in one visit. There's plenty to eat two. If I could change one thing it would be for there to be more small eateries in there. Something with healthy food choices like deli sandwiches, salads, nachos and cheese or hot dogs for the kids. There is a place with hot dogs and fries and such but it's just a concession stand. You have to find somewhere to sit. Either way, the island is not really lacking much. :)
  • We stop here at least once every time we visit. My wife loved window shopping so she can get her fix here. Along with all the tastings of moonshine and wine😁. Has an arcade and rides for the kids that daddy has to finance. Also has plenty of options if you are hungry. Pretty much a one stop shop for any of your tourism needs. We sat back and relaxed by the fountains as the music played.
  • My wife and I stopped here on our honeymoon. It was a great tourist trap and there was a lot of shops to visit and things to try. The prices in most places were quite high but that was expected in a place like this. My wife and I don't have the same taste in stores but we both managed to find places we liked visiting. My personal favorite was the Pepper Palace because I enjoy hot sauce. My wife was a fan of the mirror maze and the Build A Bear Workshop. I would recommend tourist to visit this area if you are vacationing around here but just be prepared for the usual tourist trap antics.
