If you are visiting Florida’s Panhandle, otherwise known as the Emerald Coast, you have most likely heard of Destin. Destin is one of the larger cities on the Panhandle, and it lies between Pensacola and Fort Walton Beach to the west, and Panama City to the east.
The entire area is well known for its pristine turquoise waters and the sugar-sand beaches everywhere you go. There is plenty to see and do in Destin, and there are also places to lose yourself where the natural beauty lies undisturbed just as it always has.

You are never too far from some of the best restaurants you will find on the Panhandle. First, enjoy the tranquility of this beautiful place.
Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park
Just a few miles west of downtown Destin is Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park. You can get close-up, but not too personal, with alligators, snakes, dolphins, stingrays, and penguins. There are many staff-led activities to enjoy. Also, if you are so inclined, you can have birthday parties and weddings here too. Loads of fun for everyone.
Destin Harbor Boardwalk
When you want to experience the “real” Destin, the Destin Harbor Boardwalk is the place to be. There is so much to do here and most of it is free.

Here you’ll find annual events, including the Destin Seafood Festival and even a fishing rodeo.
Buccaneer Pirate Cruise
For an adventure, you will not soon forget, book a trip on the Buccaneer Pirate Cruise. Did you know that this area of Florida was known for its pirates, rum-runners, and just plain bad folk, back in the day? These days, there are interactive activities onboard every pirate cruise. The pirate ship is a 100-foot Coast Guard inspected and approved vessel and your kids will have the BEST time being a pirate, if just for an afternoon.
Uncle Buck’s Fish Bowl & Grill
When you have worked up an appetite, one of the unique places to eat is at Uncle Buck’s Fish Bowl & Grill. Here you will find superb dining and a fun family atmosphere. As if that is not enough, do not miss bowling in the ocean. No kidding, you have to see it for yourself. Bowling balls bear the likenesses of octopus and mermaids. Lanes make your bowling balls look like alligators and sharks are swallowing them. All in a unique underwater gallery.
