Destin, Florida has been a booming area on the Gulf Coast since the 1970’s, although it was not incorporated until the mid-80’s. Known as the “The World’s Luckiest Fishing Village” residents and tourists hit the piers and boats hoping to catch the largest fish of the season.
The sugar-white sandy beaches are soft and perfect for you to lay out in the sun, build a sandcastle or take a stroll with the crashing waves at your feet. Destin offers 12 public access points, including Henderson Beach State Recreation Area.
If you have a boat, waverunner, jetski or paddleboard, Crab Island is the place for you. You will find this area is packed with people soaking up the sunshine from Memorial Day straight through to Labor Day.
In addition to shopping and enjoying the beach, golfing is another activity that is popular to the locals! Golf Garden of Destin, Regatta Bay Golf & Country Club, Seascape Resort and Emerald Bay Golf Club are perfect places for a round of 18-holes.
You’ll find some of the best seafood restaurants around. Boathouse Oyster Bar, Dewey Destin’s, McGuire’s Irish Pub & Brewery should be on your list of frequent stops.
Whether you’re spending your days out on the beautiful waters of the area or shopping at the Destin Commons, we’re sure you’ll find this spot is perfect for you and your family.
