About Destin

Henderson-Park-Inn-coastline

Henderson Park Inn sits on the sugar-white shoreline of Destin, a seaside town whose southern charm is as captivating and memorable as its unspoiled beaches along the Gulf of Mexico.

The 100-fathom curve of the Atlantic Ocean draws closer to Destin than any other locale along the Florida Panhandle, providing the quickest deep-water access on the Gulf. As such, the town is a favorite of sport-fishing aficionados, and the Destin Harbor hosts the largest, most elaborately equipped fishing fleet in all of Florida.

Dubbed long ago as “The Luckiest Fishing Village in the World,” Destin has grown into one of the Emerald Coast’s most sought-after resort destinations. While the city’s renown as a fisherman’s paradise, it has become just as well known for its world-class shopping, first-class dining and entertainment. Other recreational activities include golf, tennis, scuba diving and snorkeling.
