If you’re looking for a break that includes the peace and tranquility of an oceanside retreat and a warm and sunny year-round climate, heading to Florida’s Gulf Coast for you next getaway could be the key to ultimate rest and rejuvenation. After you’ve booked your vacation rental with Five Star Gulf Rentals, you’ll need to make sure you can make it safely from place to place. There are several different modes of Destin Transportation, and you can choose the one that best fits your vacation needs.

Rental Vehicle

When you touch down at the airport, your mind is going in many directions at once. From where you stowed your carry-on to gathering your group together to exit the plane, just getting off the plane is a task full of pitfalls. As you go down your mental checklist, you may sigh in relief that your rental vehicle is waiting for you just outside the doors of the airport rental desk and you’re just moments away from starting your vacation. It’s as simple as: check in, grab the keys, and head off on your Gulf Coast adventure. Another benefit: there is no need for a mask when you’re driving a private rental vehicle.

Uber or Lyft

Ride sharing is a popular way to get around any town, big or small. It cuts out the mileage, insurance, and other fees of renting a private vehicle and you still get to where you want to go. There is often special parking for Uber and Lyft vehicles at attractions, restaurants, shops, and other popular destinations, so traveling between locations is a breeze. An added bonus is that drivers know the area – including the short cuts around obstacles like construction or any traffic backups you would otherwise sit through if you’re following your rental’s GPS. Drivers may require you to wear a mask while in their vehicle, so keep one handy.

On Foot

Destin and historic Route 30A area areas easily navigated on your own two feet. Whether you’re walking, hiking, or riding a bike, you can get some exercise and fresh Gulf air while getting around Destin Point A to Point B. Not every location is walkable, so you’ll want to make sure you have another mode of Destin transportation for restaurants and attractions that are out of the way. There’s no need for a mask when you’re setting out on your own on foot.


Historic Route 30A is only about 30 miles long when you consider the main route and it’s two connector roads. It takes you past several miles of trails, unique coastal dune lakes, state parks, and 12 seaside communities. With multiple places to stop along the way, the route is easily navigated on foot or by bike, as well as rental vehicle. A fun way to get around is the 30A trolley. You can pay for a single one-way trip, day pass, or week pass per-person. Tickets can be purchased at participating merchants, the online store, or directly to conductors. Trolleys may require masks.
