5 Things to Do in Destin at Night

While many know Destin for its beautiful beaches and large fishing fleet, Destin also has a fairly exciting nightlife, too. With different events and activities just about every night during the summer, there are plenty of options for everyone.

Here are our five favorite things to do in Destin at night:

1. HarborWalk Village

Every night during the summer, HarborWalk Village offers some form of entertainment outside of enjoying the many restaurants and shops. You can walk along the harbor and admire the largest charter fishing fleet in the country while having a drink and catching multiple artists playing the area’s favorite tunes. Check out its website to see what events it has coming up.

2. The Village Door

With two locations in the area, visiting The Village Door is one of the best things to do in Destin at night. It’s a restaurant during the day, but once the sun starts to set, it transforms into a night club. It also serves as a concert venue some nights, so check out its website to see who’s performing while you’re in town.

3. Walk on the Beach

While you may have spent all day on the beach, night walks on the beach are especially fun. You can grab a flashlight and hunt for small critters that call the beach home or just enjoy walking along the empty beach. Either way, it’s one of the more peaceful things to do in Destin at night, especially while staying at Henderson Park Inn. Being next to Henderson Beach State Park allows for a more private beach, where you can walk without worry of stumbling upon too many other people.

4. The Village of Baytowne Wharf

Marked by its numerous events each evening, The Village of Baytowne Wharf is one of the most entertaining places to spend an evening. With live music and fireworks throughout the summer, hundreds of people flock to the Village for an evening out. It’s a great place to grab dinner, watch a band place, stroll through all the shops, check out the marina and more. Check out their website to see what’s happening there during your stay.

5. Enjoy a romantic evening at a beachfront restaurant

Beach Walk Café, Henderson Park Inn’s in-house restaurant, was voted the best place for a date night in Destin, so it should absolutely be on your list of things to do in Destin at night. Complete with incredible food created by Destin native Chef Daniel Peters, Beach Walk has one of the most spectacular atmospheres in Destin. If you’d like to reserve your table, which we suggest to ensure you get a table, call 850-650-7100.
