Very young couple in our sixties wanting to spend a couple weeks on the panhandle coast in early February 2014 having just retired and wandering across the country. Destin seems like a nice stopping point...love hiking, nature, quaint towns, local color, nice bars, music but do not want to be in the middle of spring break scene. Hoping to find a place where we did not have to eat out every single meal if we did not feel like it. First, is Destin in early February free of the college crowd or where can we be fairly sure we will miss this and secondly, any recommendations as to accommodations? We are trying to decide between VRBO and nice hotel or......? Thanks so much!
