  • Stopped by boardwalk during day at the beach. Plenty of activities, shopping, and dining in the area. Easy access, good parking, plus beach access. What more could you want?! Definitely recommend and ...  more »
  • My mom and daughter did the zip line. They loved it. There is plenty to do at the boardwalk. Food and entertainment at every corner.  more »
  • Great place for food and drinks. You must take a sunset dolphin cruise with AJ’s but skip the food there.  more »

  • So disappointed!!! We have been coming to Destin almost every year since 2004. We were going to run into a store at the Destin Boardwalk that we had previously purchased shirts / school clothes for our children( a substantial purchase I might add). Tonight, We arrived at 8:25pm figuring we’d have 30 minutes or so to shop, only to discover we were required to pay $10 to park. Needless to say we turned around and left. Give me a break. Why should you have to pay to park to shop? It’s like paying to park to buy groceries. I can MAYBE understand paying if you wanted to zip line, climb the rock wall, or free fall, but even then $10 is steep. I’m wondering if the charming shops have suffered from decreased sales due to this new mandatory Parking fee. Disney World parking is $22 for the day. At least you’d get your money’s worth because you’d be there the entire day. We bought these activities for our kids on our last visit, and they were disappointed with the experience.... kind of like it was designed for small kids, not teenagers. I don’t appreciate being required to pay a $10 fee to shop at 1 store. 😡
  • Oh how much I loved being here the past Labor Day weekend. Its a far drive and pretty long distance to travel but l found solace here. The beach was so clear and the sand. The food and drinks was great especially the pineapple daiquiri. I will definitely be going back here because there wasn't enough time to do everything lol.
  • Pretty cool place to walk around and catch a fishing tour or eat at a restaurant. Recommend Harry T's or the restaurant on the very end. There's a 7D theater, which is real fun. I don't like the parking policy, $10.00 to essentially park in a gravelly lot. But that's how they make their money.
  • We had 4 group trips to Destin, shopping, dining, and sightseeing. Our groups have all cancelled all trips to Boardwalk and other destinations in Destin. Stopping at three different places will cost us $30.00 in parking fees. Spending the day there and seeing things will get very costly. That is before you purchase anything. The parking fees of $10.00 per place should have you rethinking your visit to Destin. Many other destinations want your business and have free parking, those are the places you want to go. If you like to stop at many places your parking fees can empty your pockets. Find another place. Your business is not wanted in Destin.
  • Great place to hangout with or without your family. Plenty of food choices and every place you walk in have a drink special. If you are there around football season, it even gets better with all the games on TVs. You have to park in the public parking by the big hotel/condominiums and it gets crowded. It is common public parking lot for deep sea fishing customers and harbor visitors so it is hard to find parking towards happy hour and dinner hours. This is one of the best places to watch sunsets in Destin!
