Destin

World's Luckiest Fishing Village

With emerald water and white beaches, Destin is one of America's favorite vacation destinations. The city originated as a small fishing village, but today tourists from all over the world flock here to enjoy itineraries filled with dolphin cruises, snorkeling, and superb sailing. The city boasts a lively nightlife scene, and when the sun sets, beachfront bars and seafood restaurants are abuzz with activity. The sand of Destin's idyllic beaches is considered to be some of the whitest in the world; made up of finely ground quartz crystal, it resembles sugar. Destin is in Florida Panhandle.

Where to stay in Destin

Most of Destin’s vacation accommodations are hotels, motels, and high-rise condominiums. For a luxury vacation stay, you can find a number of large houses located along the coast. Not only do these properties boast superb sea views, but many are within easy walking distance of the beach and some of the city’s best restaurants and bars. Pitch a tent at a local campsite to save a few dollars and take advantage of the Emerald Coast’s mild weather.
