Destin Continues to Shine in National Spotlight

A popular family vacation website has honored Destin’s Crystal Beach as one of the “10 Best Beaches for Families in 2014.”

photoAccording to Family Vacation Critic, “For families, it’s a combination of calm, clean waterand sand, patrolled by lifeguards and complemented by nearby eats and attractions, such as boardwalks and playgrounds. The ideal beach is also located within short walking distance of accommodations; in fact, a recent Family Vacation Critic survey reveals 50 percent of families prioritize nearby hotels, rental homes and the like.”

Fortunately for vacationers, Destin is home to excellent rental management companies that can help you find the perfect vacation home or condo.  That help is just a phone call or click away. View Destin lodging suggestions from iLoveDestin.com.

Here’s what Family Vacation Critic¬†has to say about our area: ¬†“At Crystal Beach, the sand is soft and white, the water is clear and turquoise and the atmosphere is completely calm, with little crowds to be found. Several lifeguards are stationed throughout, though the water is delightfully shallow for little ones — you can walk fairly far out in the water. Restrooms and parking add to the appeal, as do nearby attractions, restaurants and shops at¬†Destin Commons. Plenty of other restaurants, such as Camille’s, afford oceanfront views, fresh fish and kid-friendly fare, too. Many families opt to rent a condo right on the beach while in town.”¬†

Family Vacation Critic Insider Tip for Families:¬†If you don’t want to lug all your gear to the beach, rent two chairs and an umbrella for around $25 per day.


I could not agree more with the insider tip. ¬†You can have¬†backpack¬†beach chairs,¬†umbrellas, boogies boards, bikes, etc. delivered¬†straight¬†to your condo or home¬†rental through RentGearHere.com. This service has changed the way we vacation. There’s no more loading up vehicles with bike racks and beach gear. ¬†We just arrange rental through the RentGearHere website. ¬†They have a delightful crew of young people who deliver and pick-up all rentals. ¬†I love driving up to my vacation spot to see the bikes waiting for me!

Happy Weekend!
