For a simple, easy-paced and relaxing vacation, Destin has a charm all its own. Although it has gradually gained popularity it is still a secret spot with many visitors to Florida's Beaches.

For the angler, Destin is known as the "World's Luckiest Fishing Village." Salt or fresh, the waters surrounding Destin are known for their abundance — and their challenges. Home to the largest and most elaborately equipped charter boat fleet in Florida, fishing events and festivals are held year-round.
Temperate weather and refreshing breezes continue throughout autumn, which brings both the Destin Fishing Rodeo and the annual Seafood Festival. Spring and summer bring the excitement of the Cobia Tournament and the Destin Shark Tournament.
Fishing, although by far one of the more popular recreational activities, is certainly not the only one.
Acclaimed as the "Best Beach in the South" and one of the top three "Favorite Family Vacation Destinations" by the readers of Southern Living, Destin also plays host to many other recreational opportunities.
Dive or snorkel on the natural reefs, wrecks, and barges in Destin's clear green waters. Acres of links will satisfy the golfer in your family, and watersports, sailing, tennis and hiking are just a few of the outdoor recreational activities available.
When you come in from the sun, explore unique arts and collectibles galleries, specialty shops and modern malls. Savor culinary excellence with sumptuous seafood straight from the Gulf in casual beachside eateries or fine restaurants. And as if that weren't enough, festivals and special events celebrating food, wine, art, sports and even the area's legendary pirate past fill the calendar year-round.
