Downtown OWA Grows with Five New Businesses Opening their Doors

August 4, 2023

“From new restaurants to boutique shops and toy stores, Downtown OWA continues to offer something for everyone.”

OWA Parks & Resort is thrilled to announce the opening of several new businesses to Downtown OWA, the admission-free shopping, dining, and entertainment district of the property. After a fun day of thrills at Tropic Falls, OWA’s amusement and water park, there’s no better place to relax and unwind than the pedestrian friendly streets of Downtown OWA.

“We are excited to see Downtown OWA thrive and offer more options for our guests,” said Kristin Hellmich, Director of External Communications, Poarch Band of Creek Indians. “These new businesses help continue our goal of expanding our offerings and keeping visitors coming back to OWA. We are also glad to be able to accommodate these new businesses as space on the property is near capacity.”

New openings include Gussies, a family restaurant in the heart of Downtown OWA, which offers a variety of menu options including naan bread chicken pizza, shrimp baskets, pulled pork sandwiches, and an array of delicious sides. And Starbucks is now bringing its signature coffee, teas, and pastries to the small-town streets of Downtown OWA.

Toys Under Twenty is a new shop that offers a selection of toys, games, and activities all under $20. The store features its resident reader, Shroomy, a mushroom that loves to read and share books with kids. Toys Under Twenty has a Little Free Library where kids are encouraged to take a book and share one. There is also a spot for teachers to stop by and stock up on classroom supplies at the lowest rates.

The newly opened Vacay Everyday Boutique is a go-to destination for quality on-trend clothing, shoes, accessories, and gift items. Vacay Everyday seeks to help bring a little bit of the vacay-feeling to every day.

Lastly, OWA also welcomes Slappin’ Daks, a frozen daquiri shop offering an assortment of tasty flavors and unique frozen beverages, topped with candy treats. In addition to their traditional daquiris, they also offer non-alcoholic options.
