June White Decker Park

When you’re craving time settled into sugar-white sands, watching blue waves roll in, an afternoon spent at June White Decker Park promises to please. Located off of Restaurant Road in Destin, this delightful locale is a great place to work on that golden Florida tan in the winter, savor time in the waves or grab your snorkel gear and enjoy encounters with colorful underwater foliage and fish!

Book an Inshore Fishing Trip

Often associated with the warm days of summer, inshore fishing isn’t off-limits at all for those that get out on the water in the heart of winter in Florida along the shores of 30A. Rent a vessel for the day when you’re up for an independent adventure and have your own gear ready to go or book a chartered inshore fishing experience with one of the many companies that call 30A home when more guidance is preferable. During the winter months, there are many species to be reeled in, but Speckled Trout tops the list of those biting in abundance along the Gulf Coast.

Located at 23937 Panama City Beach Parkway this park is home to one of Florida’s largest rare dune lakes and offers up a maze of trails to enjoy that highlight the view.
