On Destin
“In Destin, the heart of the Panhandle, wake up early in the morning and take a stroll with the pelicans and sandpipers on the beach just as the fishing boats head out to sea. Feel free to join them and drop your own line to catch snapper and grouper.” — Away.com
On Destin’s Beaches:
“It’s not sand — it’s pure, powder-soft Appalachian quartz that was dropped off by a glacier a few thousand years back. Since quartz doesn’t compress (and crews clean and rake the beach each evening), your tootsies get the sole-satisfying benefit of soft, sugary ‘sand.’ Sand so pure it squeaks.” — Fodor’s “Like an oasis in the middle of Destin’s rapid development, the 208-acre Henderson Beach State Park, east of Destin Harbor on U.S. 98, allows easy access to swimming, sunning, surf fishing, picnicking, and seabird-watching along its 1 1/2 miles of beach.” — Frommer’s
On Fishing:
“You don’t have to go to sea to fish from the catwalk of the 3,000-foot Destin Bridge, over East Pass. The marinas and bait shops at Destin Harbor can provide gear, bait, and fishing licenses.” — Frommer’s
On Kid’s Attractions:
“In addition to the beach, families will enjoy an outing to Big Kahuna’s Water and Adventure Park which offers thrilling water rides, plus go-kart tracks and a miniature golf course. Or take the kids to see and learn more about the region’s unique marine life at the Gulfarium, in nearby Fort Walton Beach.” — TripAdvisor
On Destin’s General Community:
“Residents are generally very friendly and happy to help out. According to TripAdvisor, “Although Destin is not as laid back as its neighbor, Fort Walton Beach, it is not stuffy or snobby either.”
