Things to Do In Destin

So what are you waiting for anyway? If you haven’t found your way out to Destin, Florida yet, it’s time to get moving! There’s beautiful beaches, amazing fresh seafood, and great shopping destinations.

Close your eyes for moment and imagine yourself lying on the warm sands of a Florida beach, watching sailboats drift by and hearing the soothing crash and swish of the ocean waves. You’ve got an ice cold cocktail to cool you down and relax your nerves, perhaps your significant other by your side. Can things get any better than this? Not really, and that’s what vacations are all about. So without further ado, here’s a few of our favorite things to do in Destin!

Henderson Beach State Park

The beautiful white sands here will make you think you’re in paradise, and in many ways, you are. Henderson Beach State Park features 60 campsites on protected coast. The wildlife here are abundant and fun to watch and the sand dunes combining with the clear light blue water are the stuff dreams are made of!

Destin Harbor

Who doesn’t love looking at boats? You won’t believe some of the gorgeous boats floating in Destin Harbor and you can spend hours just walking around looking at these beautiful works of art. Some are for fishing, some are for sport, and some are just for casual roaming around the seas. There are rentals available should you decide to head out on the water for some deep sea fishing or just some good old fashioned sightseeing. Destin Harbor is one boardwalk you won’t want to miss.

Baytowne Wharf Village

There’s just so much to do and see in Baytown Wharf that it might take you a couple of days to really get a full experience. Musical performances, great eateries, and an endless amount of rich culture will keep you happy and entertained from dawn till dusk. Don’t mis this amazing destination on your next trip.



It’s amazing how many people come to Destin, Florida every year to see beautiful Destin and the surrounding areas. We’ve got the beaches, the great food, night life, culture, and that precious sunshine everyone craves. There’s simply an endless number of things to do right here, and we love that.

Destin, Florida Beach

Even still, a great many people use Destin as a jumping off point for heading abroad. We’re in a great location to catch a cruise ship or a plane to some exotic foreign destination. Of course, we hope you’ll stop in Destin first and let us treat you right for a while.

Stopping in Destin On Your Way Abroad?

But it’s no secret. We get so many international travelers coming through and they all are looking for advice on where to go, what to do, and how to prepare for a trip to another country. This got us thinking. What should you even bring on a trip abroad?

There’s a few obvious items of course. Your passport, some foreign currency, a visa, maybe even a waterproof bag. But a passport? Duh. Could there be anything else more important? Not likely.

For one thing, you probably won’t even get in to said foreign country without one (and that’s assuming you have a visa, too). So why not start there with things to take with you? You’re going to need a passport protector. There’s no doubt about it. It’ll keep you organized and make sure your most precious travel doc stays dry, organized, and yes.. protected.

We’ve heard all the horror stories about things getting lost whether it be here in Destin or off foreign island somewhere. Not a week doesn’t go by that guesthouse owners and landlords will receive calls from Americans overseas asking if they left their passports, plane tickets, or favoring pair of swimming trunks behind in their room. For whatever reason, we travelers don’t take nearly as good of care of our passports and plane tickets as we do our cash and credit cards. The former tends to get stuffed into a duffle bag pocket or worse… crammed into the front pocket of a pair of jeans.

Hey, if you have one, you might not have to make a long distance call to Florida asking us to look for the passport you left behind. Destin is a fashion-forward place, and all our visitors coming through seem to have great fashion just like the locals. If a lady is worried about not being able to find something to stay organized that also looks stylish at the same time, fret not. There’s also a passport holder for women option. Actually… a bunch!

Travel Surprises Are in Store When You Head to Florida

And look, even if you don’t have travel plans to wander out of the country, you’ll never know until you get here. Sometimes things just happen and you can’t resist jetting off or boating off to your next destination. If you’re the rugged guy type, there’s even a leather passport holder section that’s great too. So, what are you waiting for?

There’s so much other gear you should be bringing along as a traveler. In Destin, you’ll probably want some sunscreen and flip flops given our weather. But colder climates aren’t far from the sandy beaches of florida if you’d like to explore Iceland, Greenland, or even Canada. Pack for the weather you’ll be experiencing and you’ll survive alright.
