Get Together With Family This Summer
Summer Family Reunions in Destin
Ah, summer in Destin. There’s nothing like it: warm weather, blue skies, and beaches that shine as bright as the sun. There are a million and one reasons to come to Destin in the summer, and a family reunion is one of our favorites. Summer is the perfect time of year to have a family reunion too, since school is out and it’s easier to coordinate schedules. If you’re looking to plan a family reunion to Destin this summer, you’ll want to firm up your plans quickly to make sure you secure your favorite beach home. Availability is filling up fast!
We’ve said it time and time again, but one of our favorite places to stay in Destin for family reunions is at the Cottages by the Bay. These beautiful Cottages are nestled in the heart of Downtown Destin just minutes from the beach and Choctawhatchee Bay. You’re going to love the Old Florida style offered in the Cottages, from luxe furnishings to personalized touches throughout each home. If you have a large family, you can reserve all eight cottages to sleep 50 guests. This is called “The Retreat.” And, beginning on July 1st, a new Cottage will be added to the community: “At Last.” Just in time for your summer family reunion to Destin! Since all of the homes are conveniently placed in one community, you won’t have to go far to get to everyone.
Once you’ve booked your homes, it’s time to plan some activities! There are lots of fun things to do in Destin¬†for all age groups: dolphin cruises, fishing charters, pontoon boat rentals; the opportunities are endless! You can even venture into nearby Fort Walton Beach and Okaloosa Island for more fun at the Gulfarium and Wild Willy’s Adventure Zone. If you’re traveling especially with older kids, they’ll love the chance to rent jet-skis and cruise through Destin next to dolphins and other sea life. Of course, nothing beats simply relaxing in a beach chair in the sand!
