What travelers to Destin are saying

Every year i would take my kids to Destin to be on the beautiful beach. There's plenty of activities to do while in destin on land and in water.. Overall, destin is the place to go if you live outside of florida.

Hotels in Destin

Destin, Florida, follows the sea on the Emerald Coast. You can find various accommodations in Destin ranging from fully furnished waterfront hotels to less expensive inland motel rooms and suites. Whether you stay overnight or long term, reservations are suggested during late spring and summer.

Key facts

Charming Ft. Walton Beach, just 9 miles from Destin, has the closest airport, but Pensacola’s international airport is about an hour away. When you fly in, consider renting a car to explore the surrounding coastal areas. The drive from Pensacola through Ft. Walton Beach along the Gulf of Mexico is scenic and worth the trip by itself. If you want to see a natural beach area, visit the Gulf Island National Seashore’s Okaloosa Day Use Area, which provides quiet beaches, picnic tables and restrooms.

Hints and tips

Picturesque Destin was the unforgettable location for the United States anti-utopian movie, “The Truman Show.” Destin Commons outdoor mall and the Silver Sands Premium Outlets attract shoppers year round. Finding a great spot to eat is easy on Gulf Shore Drive. The beaches are lined with waterfront seafood restaurants. Thai and Chinese restaurants featuring world cuisine compete with pizza and hamburger chains along Highway 98. Nightlife is clustered in the Destin Harbor area, offering live music and a chance to dance the night away.
