Savor the Sun at Henderson Beach State Park

While Halloween in Destin means cold weather in many places, those that travel to Destin will find beautiful weather waiting to greet them. When you’re looking to spend your holiday away on the sand, a day spent at Henderson Beach State Park is a must. Located at 17000 Emerald Coast Parkway, this state park is a place where guests can settle into the sand and work on their tan or grab the snorkel gear and jump in the water. The combination of lush foliage, 30-foot sand dunes, and deep blue Gulf waters make this a scenic stop where photographers will also want to capture a few shots.
