I am hoping someone can shed some light on the conflicting info I am hearing regarding the legality of golf carts. We rented a place in Destiny East (first time in Destin area, normally vacation in Rosemary/Seacrest) and it seems like we may benefit from a golf cart for easy trips to the beach.
I asked my rental agent and a couple golf cart rental places who say yes, I can rent a street legal golf cart to go to the beach and drive on paved roads where speed limit is under 35 mph - Destiny east does allow golf carts but some people have said they've heard only homeowners in Destin are allowed to have golf carts and only those who own their own golf cart and include in rental agreement can have tenants who actually drive them legally in destin. So my question is which is it? Can I rent a street legal golf cart (registered with DMV) and drive to beach on roads under 35 mph or not?
Also, any info on destiny east community is greatly appreciated. - hoping it is nice (it looked it) and beaches not too crowded or too "party" central. Rosemary was pretty busy last July, hoping these beaches are a bit roomier. Also, anything within walking distance (coffee shops, restaurants, etc.)? We're going the last week of July.
Thanks for any info you can provide.
