Shopping on a beach

It’s almost time. The biggest shopping weekend of the year is right around the corner. Black Friday is a big deal to most people around the holiday season because it’s when you get the best deals. Emerald Coast has some of the best shopping around so we expect lots of visitors around this time. Stores haven’t released their extended hours just yet but we can assume the shopping extravaganza will begin even earlier than Friday as it has in recent years. So, where will you go on that fateful weekend?

With Emerald Coast’s reputation for the top shopping in the southeast United States, it’s certainly the place to be on this very special national holiday!
