Newly redesigned in 2012, Destin Harbor Boardwalk features a line of matching shop fronts and provides easy waterfront access. The main attraction--the many water activities--includes jet skiing, parasailing, boating, charter fishing, snorkeling, and dolphin tours. Have your pick of fresh seafood from one of the many restaurants, and peruse the handmade local crafts at the souvenir shops. The modern boardwalk offers ample seating, so you can just sit and watch the tide come in, too.

  • Passing through Destin went in the port area, very pretty, with a beautiful promenade filled with shops and pubs where you can drink and eat. Recommend going at night which is packed with people.

  • Adorable place, even in winter. After hours are meant for the bar-hoppers, mostly. Tons of things to do for everyone. Great restaurants & food, entertainment, fishing charters (night & day), and much, much more!
  • Family environment. Wonderfully decorated. Enjoyed the shopping experience. Very nice employees. Great get away. Good restaurants and ocean view was amazing. Awesome music....
  • Very commercial but tourist friendly. Clean and somewhat busy this time of year but if you aren't chartering a fishing boat, eating, or shopping here, there isn't much at the Boardwalk. Parking lot is very tight but there is a garage nearby at the hotel. Small shacks for businesses could use some upgrading and some activities for kids.
  • Decent food and drinks! Family friendly and nice staff in the stalls/shops/restaurants. Loved the way the boats were halted in back waters! We did hop on one for a bit to rest and take couple of pictures. Not sure if its okay to do that thou O_O. The fish food was cheaper(50c) as you go in rather than the entrance ($1) if you like to feed them. A person who passed by us also suggested to feed the fishes with crackers. Couldn't try since we did not have them then. They did have kid friendly activities near the entrance. I like doing the walk before dusk and halting for food once its dark! Music was excellent.
  • Very cool place. Lots of stores and places to eat/drink. Parking can be difficult especially during festivals and the fishing rodeo. I recommend parking at one of the restaurants off of 30A. Feeding the fish is fine but the fish food vending machines are as expensive as protecting the Trump family with secret service.

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.
