Located along Florida’s northwest coast, Destin is a perennial Panhandle favourite, with vacation rentals facing sugar-white sands, emerald-hued Gulf waters, and coastal dune lakes.
Known as the “World’s Luckiest Fishing Village,” Destin harbors some of the most rewarding angling opportunities in the state. With the largest charter fishing fleet in Florida, it is possible to fish for barracuda, grouper, and blue and white marlin, among others. Sunbathers, swimmers, snorkelers, and scuba divers favour the ocean and coast, while canoeists and kayakers take to the area’s lakes. Golfing enthusiasts will be well served with Destin’s championship courses. State parks and hundreds of square kilometres of forests support an extensive network of recreational trails for walking, hiking, and cycling.
Destin offers a vast array of natural, outdoors, and cultural attractions, as well as a variety of shopping, dining, and rental accommodation options, and is just under a three hours’ drive west of Tallahassee, Florida’s capital city.+ More
