Destin or Gulf Shores/Orange Beach

What are the differences between Destin and Orange Beach? The pictures I have seen make it look like Orange beach has a larger beach but Destin is what I always hear about. Any opinions?

Definitely Destin!!!! We want to Gulf Shores and stayed at "The Beach Club" and the condo was great but the beaches don't compare the water was not as clear as when we went to Destin last year and as others have said there is a lot more to do in Destin.

We've already booked our trip back to Sandestin in may.
