Books to Bring to the Beach

Allyssa Smith Share

Nothing beats a beach chair in the white sands of a Destin beach, a beer in a koozie, and a good book in hand. I see more and more people reading on the beach. Whether it be a hard cover mystery novel, or a love story downloaded on a Kindle, nothing is quite as relaxing as flipping through the pages of a good book while soaking in the sights, sounds, and sun that Destin and 30A have to offer. The following is a list of the top-selling novels as listed

Live Music at HarborWalk

Allyssa Smith Share

Those interested in viewing live musical performances during their Destin vacation will not be disappointed with the variety they can find at Harborwalk. From 90s and Beatles covers, to upbeat originals, you can find it all on the stages at Harborwalk. While of course everyone’s taste in music varies, I have found a couple bands that I believe appeal to lovers of many different genres. I have seen both of these bands in the Old Destin/HarborWalk area and been blown away by both. When I first moved to Destin, I

Crab Island Shenanigans!

Allyssa Smith Share

Located at the entrance of the Choctawhatchee Bay on the north side of the Destin Bridge, Crab Island attracts hundreds, if not thousands, of boaters every day. From snorkeling and fishing, to partying during Memorial Day weekend, Crab Island is the place to be when you visit Destin. While surely you will see your fair share of partying and drinking going on during your visit to Crab Island, there are more family-friendly locations around the sandbar where you can spend quality family time. Drop anchor on the outskirts of the

See Turtles in Destin!

Allyssa Smith Share

Sea turtles only leave the ocean in order to nest and lay their eggs. Fortunately for us, we get the opportunity to witness this miracle of life right here on the Emerald Coast. The miraculous sea turtles can live up to one-hundred years old. The unfortunate news is that the odds are stacked against the young sea turtles after their hatching. Now is the season for the mother sea turtles to come ashore and dig a nest out to lay her eggs. The small, slow moving babies have a difficult

Jet Ski Destin

Allyssa Smith Share

A vacation to the beach is incomplete without zipping through the Gulf or the bay on a jet ski! There are plenty of places in Destin and Miramar Beach where you can find vessels to rent. Whether you wish to go on a guided dolphin siting tour on a jet ski, or just cruise around the areas of your choice, jet skis are loads of fun. Dockside Watersports and Parasailing offers both guided tour services and jet ski rentals at their marina on the Destin Harbor located at 288 Harbor
