Destin is a beach lover's paradise and hot spot for Florida vacations, thanks to its white sand beaches, emerald green waters, and family attractions. The resort community is located along scenic Florida's Emerald Coast, on a peninsula separating Choctawhatchee Bay with the Gulf of Mexico. Climb aboard a fishing vessel, walk the boardwalks, or visit an alligator farm, this city truly has it all! There's something for everyone to enjoy when you stay in one of our Destin vacation rentals!
Things to Do in Destin
The most difficult decision you'll make during your stay in one of our homes in Destin is where and how to start your vacation! History buffs will enjoy combing through Fort Pickens, a historic military fort on Santa Rosa Island. Visit the pristine Santa Rosa Beach and see for yourself why Florida is known as the Sunshine State! Board a Buccaneer Pirate Cruise complete with sword fighting, story telling, and treasure hunts, or pack your salsa dancing shoes for a trip to the lively HarborWalk Village which includes more than 60 waterfront nightclubs, restaurants, and boutiques.
The world is your oyster along the Florida Coast. Sunbathers, kites fliers, and adventures alike will enjoy the seemingly endless miles of sandy beaches. Henderson Beach State Park offers family-friendly swimming, pavilions, nature trails, and playgrounds for a memorable day outdoors. The Destin Harbor Boardwalk includes oyster bars, shopping boutiques, and activities for thrill seekers including jet ski rentals, parasailing, scuba and snorkeling, and dolphin tours. Sunbathers and mini-cocktail-umbrella enthusiasts (you know who you are) will find plenty of spots to indulge: pick out your favorite lounge chair, dive nose deep into a book, or walk along the beach and pop into waterfront resort bars for a fruity beverage.
Destin's Family-Friendly Attractions
Our Destin vacation rentals are surrounded by The Sunshine State's best family attractions! Big Kahuna's Water and Adventure Park offers water slides, wave pools, and lazy rivers for the whole family! For an educational experience, visit the National Naval Aviation Museum and learn about Pensacola's rich cultural history. View more than 80 alligators up close and personal or feed the giant creatures at Gator Beach! Animals with slightly less teeth are on parade at the Gulf Breeze Zoo and wildlife adventure, and penguins, dolphins, sea lions, and more find home at Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park in neighboring and family-friendly Fort Walton Beach.
Whatever your pleasure, a stay in one of our Destin vacation rentals will provide fun-filled days at the beach, in the boutiques, and with the entire family!
