Don’t think that you can’t get away from the crowds and noise… Destin¬†hasn’t changed so much that you can’t enjoy the simple¬†beach life.¬†Really, In Destin, you can either enjoy totally “vegging-out” for a beach weekend, or enjoy a big active social one. You pick, but don’t allow the “simple way of life” to get over crowded and lost. Because Destin is still very serine and has totally gorgeous nature all around.
So, if you want to get out of the crowd and just enjoy some time with family and friends here are some ideas that will do just that.
Are you craving Fresh Destin Seafood but you fear the line at the restaurants? Well, try going to one of Destin’s local Seafood Markets,¬†like Destin Ice or Sexton’s Seafood on Hwy 98,¬†and purchasing whatever it is you want, from more than 12 varieties of Fresh Daily Caught Fish from Grouper to Pompano or more than 13 choices of Local Fresh Seafood from Crab to homemade Gumbo & Bisques.
Check into one of Destin’s Best Rental’s purposely designed with a fully equipped¬†kitchen and grilling opportunities. This way you can have a nice dinner at the time you want it… Just imagine,¬†opening a bottle of wine in your beautiful Destin Condo and sipping as you set out a¬†seafood market prepared dinner with everyone¬†joining in intimate and meaningful conversation.¬†And¬†if you have kids, they’re playing, maybe throwing the ball on the beach or games in the courtyard, instead of having to sit still and behave because it’s standing room only.¬†
After dinner take a stroll on the miles and miles of Destin beach all together or in solitude or as a couple, either way take in the fresh salt breeze, get sand in your toes, and let the waves roll over your feet, no time limit, just be. Or while on the beach at dusk go “crabbing” either in the water or take a flashlight and spot all the friendly little white sand crabs. For Memorial Day Weekend or other holiday weekends like The 4th of July, don’t worry about having to go anywhere to see the fireworks, 9 times out of 10 you can just take the rest of that bottle of wine with¬†your lounge chair out to the beach, sit, relax and voila’, you can see the fireworks anyway… less hassle and very relaxing and special.
