TripAdvisor – Top 3 Things to Do in Destin
Itâ€™s no surprise that TripAdvisorâ€™s ranking of the Top 3 â€śThings to Doâ€ť in Destin, FL revolves around fishing and the beach.
#1 Fishing Charters & Tours – Destinâ€™s exceptional fishing fleet offers the top experience for visitors to Destin. Dubbed the â€śWorldâ€™s Luckiest Fishing Villageâ€ť, the best charter boat captains provide amazing half-day and full-day adventures out in the Gulf of Mexico. In addition, inshore fishing is a popular option. Fishing in the calm backwaters ofÂ Choctawhatchee Bay and the intracoastal waterwayÂ is the epitome of relaxation and sport. Destin Inshore Fishing offers a variety of fishing adventures including inshore fishing charters and kid teaching trips.Â The target is mostly redfish or speckled trout, but itâ€™s not uncommon to also target Spanish mackerel, black drum, sheephead, or black snapper.
#2 Boat Tours – Destin tour operators offer a little bit of everything. Interested in watching dolphins frolic in the gulf or how about a romantic sunset cruise? Several boat captains offer the dolphin and/or sunset cruises. Destin also sports a fun buccaneer pirate cruise and a very popular sunset dinner cruise. The SunQuest dinner cruises are also perfect for special celebrations and holidays.
#3 Henderson Beach State Park – We love this state park just as much as TripAdvisor reviews! A recent reviewer said, â€śHenderson Beach is absolutely wonderful! You do have to pay to get to the beaches, but itâ€™s worth paying for because the beaches are nicer and they have a play area for the kids as well as a walking trail.â€ť The current fee of $6 per car is well worth it. The park has ample parking and clean restrooms.
