It’s Destin! Where do I even start? What was once known as a quaint little fishing village has exploded into an amazing city that’s a must visit if you’re nearby. Destin Harbor sits about fifty miles from Pensacola Bay. On a journey to Destin you’ll will travel through Navarre and Fort Walton Beach, both of which offer some great scenery.
You will have no trouble occupying your time right there on the board walk in Destin, there are hundreds of things to do from shopping and dining to live music and daiquiri bars. The crowd and things to do as you walk down Harborwalk or hit the docks just ooze fun, everyone is always having a blast. AJ’s Seafood and Oyster Bar is one of the most well-known beach bars in the country.
Destin is also home to some beautiful emerald green water and a hot spot for boaters called Crab Island that sits just outside Destin Harbor. Activities at Crab Island range from snorkeling and relaxing on your boat, to eating boiled peanuts, sandwiches, or ice cream from one of the many floating food vendors, to watching your kids play on a giant inflatable slide, trampoline, or at the inflatable obstacle course known as Crab Island Waterpark, to partying with friends to local bands playing on a floating stage.
