Also known as “The World’s Luckiest Fishing Village”, Destin is located on the Gulf Coast of the Florida Panhandle in an area deservedly called the Emerald Coast. It is a well-regarded destination for deep-sea fishermen from around the nation, and has miles and miles of pristine beach perfect for watersports enthusiasts and sun worshippers alike.
If you’re at all interested in deep-sea or saltwater fishing, make sure to bring your gear along or rent your own. Nearby Panama City Beach holds the Bay Point Billfish Invitational fishing contest annually, but you can also charter a boat year round. During your stay at a Destin hotel, keep your eyes peeled for many other great activities available on Destin’s beaches: snorkeling, scuba diving, and sailing are just a few. And, of course, if you’re looking for a more relaxing beach experience, feel free to pull up a beach chair and let the gentle slap of waves lull you to sleep.
There’s more to Destin than just the beach. The Emerald Coast Science Center will delight kids and adults alike with fun and learning. Gator Beach and Florida’s Gulfarium let you get up close and personal with the alligators, dolphins, and sea lions. You’ll also want to head to the Destin History and Fishing Museum to learn more about the area’s roots.
