Destin

Destin, known for its clear emerald water, sugary white sand, and carefree lifestyle, has once again been voted a top destination in international surveys. Miramar Beach, Seascape, Topsail, and Sandestin are often referred to as Destin as they sit side-by-side and flow seamlessly into Destin, but they are in Walton County. The Destin area is home to multiple hubs for shopping, events, and restaurants such as HarborWalk Village, Destin Harbor Boardwalk, Village of Baytowne Wharf, Market Shops of Sandestin, Silver Sands Premium Outlets, and the Destin Commons. Destin offers several resort-style golf communities which include Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort, Emerald Bay Golf Club, Seascape Resort & Golf Club, Kelly Plantation, and Regatta Bay Golf & Country Club. Summertime hot spots include boating to Crab Island, AJ’s Seafood and Oyster Bar to watch the sunset and Big Kahuna’s Water and Adventure Park is always a great place to cool off. Among the many places to stay in Destin, Henderson Park Inn, voted one of the most romantic hotels in the country and located near the Henderson Beach State Park, offers beautiful Gulf views. Popular events in the Destin area include the Mattie Kelly Arts Foundation Concerts In the Village, Rock The Docks at HarborWalk Village, Emerald Coast Blue Marlin Classic, Destin Fishing Rodeo, Baytowne Wharf Beer Fest, Destin Seafood Festival, EMERALD COAST POKER RUN, and Sandestin Wine Festival.
