Wonderful shops and restaurants. Friendly people and great meals to be had for all families. Look at menus first and if prices are too much, move on, there are many restaurants to choose from. Souvenir shops are everywhere and there are deals to be had. Boat tours are worth the time and the money.

Start your morning at sunrise with a walk on the beach where the glassy calm Gulf of Mexico is interrupted only by the bobbing bodies of dolphins 30-40' off the shore looking for breakfast. The area is beautiful and being from Texas, I can't believe its the Gulf. Lot's of great places to stay on the beach, plenty of good... More

I've been strolling along those docks since 1963. There's something magical to a child, or a "child at heart" about watching the fishing boats come in and watching the daily catch come off the boats. It is the most up close view you will have with a fresh caught fish other than reeling it in yourself! Everyone "oohs and ahs"... More

The area is very busy with shops, restaurants, etc. Its not my thing. There is a ton of touristy stuff that is overpriced and not worth it. From ziplines to interactive movies, to fishing charters. Too busy and crowed for me. I try to stay away.

The Destin Harbor is lots of fun with many speciality stores. You can see the boats pulling up with their catch and the excited passengers. Miss Sandy Charters is a great boat @ 850 833 2226 and they have have the best reviews. They also offer Shark Fishing at night.

I love all of the activities at the Destin Harbor and the restaurants have never failed us. Both of my kids have enjoyed it also. It is a good mix of fun for the whole family. The shopping is also great. It was cold in March and I was able to get a nice jacket and hat for me and... More

The harbor is great and the Harborwalk is an improvement from when it was just boats and small localish waterholes if you like touristy things and crowds. Parking is atrocious and driving to and from here is crazy slow during the summer. I'm sure someone is thinking about fixing that instead of just adding more to an already bad situation.
