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 don't know but there is a free shuttle that will pick you up at your condo and take you to John's Pass and other local restaurants and pick you up. They work for tips. It's the best way to go.

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.
