Southern Living named Destin the #2 beach town in their lineup of The South’s Best Beach Towns.
“Once a sleepy little burg known only to fishermen, Destin remains “the luckiest fishing village.” But its reputation has spread far beyond the docks. Between the brilliant, sparkling Gulf waters—which are a singular shade of emerald-blue here—and miles of white sand, it’s no wonder the popularity of this Panhandle town has exploded.”
Destin is the Emerald’s Coast most well known town. You can’t miss the main attraction – the beach – but we also have award-winning golf, delicious Gulf-to-table dining, fun nightlife, and the largest fleet of fishing boats in Florida. It’s no surprise our once hidden little seaside town is now a world-class vacation destination.
