Destined for sea and sun

A gem in Florida’s Panhandle, Destin is known for its Gulf of Mexico beaches, vibrant Harbor Boardwalk, and unique social scene. The large-scale seaside celebration on Destin’s Crab Island has to be seen to be believed, but once you experience it, chances are you won’t want to leave.

Of course, with sand dunes, nature trails, and freshwater springs a short drive away, there’s also plenty of space for peaceful relaxation amid coastal beauty.

Destin favorites

Lovely and laid back, Destin will be a non-stop beachside party for your entire trip.

Destin Harbor Boardwalk

Along the Destin Harbor Boardwalk, you can visit boutique shops, sample fresh seafood, and enjoy beautiful views of Destin Harbor. From the boardwalk, you can also head out on ocean adventures like dolphin cruises, snorkeling, parasailing, or fishing.

Crab Island

For years, boaters have congregated on Crab Island, a sandbar just south of Destin’s Marler Bridge. Today, Crab Island is even more of a party, complete with food vendors, mini stores, and kayak and paddleboard rentals. It’s a happening place for fun in the sun.

Henderson Beach State Park

Walk the majestic shoreline at Henderson Beach State Park, explore white sand dunes, or bask in the warm tide. The park is also open for fishing and camping, and includes a beautiful nature trail and boardwalk.

Hit the road

Destin’s casual beach culture makes for a relaxing vacation, but if you’re curious what lies beyond this small-town paradise, you’re in for a treat. Within an hour’s drive are three of Florida’s freshwater springs: Morrison, Ponce de Leon, and Vortex. Drive an hour farther, and you’ll find idyllic small towns like Fairhope and Magnolia Springs. If you’re looking for more fast-paced fun, you’ll love bustling but beautiful Panama City.

Ponce de Leon Springs State Park

Fancy a dip in the fountain of youth? Ponce de Leon State Park is named for the Spanish explorer who led an expedition to Florida in search of the legendary fountain. While these springs may not grant you eternal youth, it’s a refreshing place to swim, snorkel, or hike.

Magnolia Springs, AL

If you venture two hours west of Destin toward Alabama, you’ll reach the charming town of Magnolia Springs. Drive along Oak Street for southern houses and sweeping magnolias. Then grab a bite to eat at Jesse’s Restaurant, a quaint sandwich, steak, and seafood diner in a former General Store.

Panama City

When you need a break from small town life, head to Panama City: the largest Florida city between Tallahassee and Pensacola. In addition to fine dining, fun shopping, and a premier sports complex, Panama City boasts pristine beaches perfect for fishing, cruising, or scuba diving.

Best Destin driving roads

Purple squiggle

W County Highway 30A

Famous for its seaside beauty, a drive along 30A reveals stunning views of the Emerald Coast and numerous chances to explore idyllic beach communities. Grab a tank of fuel, start west on Emerald Coast Pkwy then turn off on 30A.

US-98 to Pensacola

On the way to Pensacola, you’ll cruise past white sand beaches and unparalleled views of the Gulf of Mexico. Once you reach Pensacola, plan to spend at least an hour or two in this historic town, which is one of the oldest in Florida.

Mid-Bay Bridge

When you take State Road 293 from Destin across Choctawhatchee Bay, you’ll feel like you’re driving straight through the ocean. Just have some cash on hand for the toll if you plan to go all the way across.
