5 of the Best Indoor Activities in Destin FL

While Destin is known for its exceptional weather and beautiful outdoor scenery, we understand that sometimes you just need to get out of the sun for a bit. Now, in the wake of COVID-19, we’re still seeing limitations on many of our indoor activities in Destin FL, but there are still a few things you can do to keep yourself occupied while inside.

1. Thrills Arcade and Laser Tag

For more information, visit their website.

2. Board Games in the Dining Room

Don’t want to leave the inn? We have you covered. If you’re looking for indoor activities in Destin FL but want to remain in the comfort of your hotel, we have a variety of board games that you’re welcome to enjoy while staying with us. We suggest playing in the dining room while enjoying the view of the Gulf. It’s a perfect way to recuperate from hours spent on the beach while still experiencing the view.

3. The Spa at The Henderson

4. Gulf Coast Axe House

Axe throwing is one of the newest indoor activities in Destin FL to have sprung up, and Gulf Coast Axe House is a short drive from the inn. It’s the premier axe throwing venue in northwest Florida, and it’s a unique experience that you won’t easily forget. For more information, visit their website.

5. Shopping at Destin Commons or Silver Sands Outlet

In our area, there isn’t a fully indoor mall, but both Destin Commons and Silver Sands provide covered walkways to shield visitors from the elements. Plus, there are so many wonderful shops that you’ll likely spend most of your time inside the stores anyway. They have all your favorites from Lush and J.Crew to local boutiques and tasty dining options. And, both are a quick drive away from the inn.

Still, our outdoor activities are why so many people flock to our area. From spending a day on a charter fishing boat to relaxing on the beach, our natural features are the best part, but sometimes the weather isn’t perfect or a sunburn puts you in need of some shade. So, it’s good to have a few options for indoor activities in Destin FL. If you’re ready to book your Destin beach vacation, head to our accommodations page to secure your room now.
