Weather in later April

Hi everyone, my family and I are coming to Destin April 18-25. I am nervous about the temps. Are they typically warm enough to swim, play at the pool, wear shorts, etc.? I am from Michigan so anything will feel better than -20. I just don't want to be chilly and I want to make sure we pack right.

We will be there the week before you and you (we) should have decent weather by then. If you look at the next 5 days, temps are fluctuating between high 50's to low 70's. By mid to late April, temps should be averaging in the mid to high 70's. Hopefully. We swim in the Gulf every year despite the cool water temperatures. Granted, we're coming from WI so anything feels good to us. Besides, I can't go on vacation and NOT go in the Gulf! When we go, we pack everything from shorts and t-shirts to long pants and sweatshirts for cooler nights. Have a great trip!

Yes, I agree!! We must swim in the Gulf. This is our first time to Destin. I know my kids would swim in the 60s but I am kinda a wimp. I can't wait, I have heard such great things about it!

Hey hey, We'll all be there the same week! We always go at Easter (School Break) last year the weather was a little spotty, but we have never been disappointed in the weather, as you said it's better than what we've been having in the Midwest. I didn't swim in the gulf last year but then I never get in past my knees anyway! Most years it has been very warm to hot, I have never packed anything more than a jacket and some yoga pants, it's shorts etc. for us. If something weird happens with the weather though, there are plenty of outlets and cool stores to pick up warmer things! Have fun, I know we are sooo ready for some beach time!!
