Top 3 Things to Do in Destin FL in August
Visiting Destin, Florida this August is the perfect way to soak up some fun in the sun before summer ends! August brings tropical weather to the Emerald Coast and fewer crowds when the school year begins. To help you make the most of your vacation, the Henderson Park Inn has put together a guide to the top three things to do in Destin FL in August.
1. Go for a Swim
With average highs around 90 °F and lows around 75 °F, Destin offers its warmest weather in August. The dog days of summer are a wonderful time to go for a swim! Guests at the Henderson Park Inn will be able to splash around in the emerald green waters of our private white sand beach.
The Gulf’s water temperature is typically in the 80s during August, so you definitely won’t need to brace yourself before wading in. When you stay at the Henderson Park Inn, you can also go for a dip in the swimming pools located at our sister property across the street.
2. Enjoy Live Music at The Village of Baytowne Wharf
Listening to live music is another one of our favorite things to do in Destin FL in August. Every Wednesday, The Village of Baytowne Wharf hosts a free concert from 7 to 9 p.m. Featuring some of the best bands from around Destin and the Florida Panhandle, these concerts are always a ton of fun. In addition to the Wednesday night concerts, The Village will also have live music on August 7th and 9th.
3. Take a Dolphin Cruise
The Gulf of Mexico is home to around 40,000 beautiful dolphins! If you would like an up-close view of these incredible creatures, we suggest taking the Sea Blaster Dolphin Tour. Captain Larry has been offering dolphin cruises on the Sea Blaster, a 73-foot passenger speedboat, for over 20 years. As you search for dolphins and learn all about the Emerald Coast, you can enjoy complimentary soda, beer, or wine. Guests at our inn will receive one free adult admission for the Sea Blaster Dolphin Tour per paid night stay.
