Everything You Need to Know About Destin Florida in June
June is one of the most popular times to visit Destin, Florida – and with good reason! As spring transitions to summer, the Emerald Coast comes alive with beautiful weather and a variety of fun events. To help you plan your vacation, the Henderson Park Inn has put together a convenient guide with everything you need to know about Destin Florida in June.
Conditions are Ideal for a Day at the Beach
June is the peak season for enjoying Destin’s gorgeous white sand beaches on the Gulf Coast. With sunny skies and average highs of 89 °F, the weather is perfect for laying in the sand and catching some rays. Even better, the average water temperature is 81 °F! Whether you want to swim, snorkel, or simply wade in the ocean, you won’t find more comfortable conditions. The Henderson Park Inn has its very own private beach, so our guests can take advantage of the amazing weather throughout their getaway.
Fireworks and Fighter Plane Displays Every Thursday
Every Thursday on Destin Harbor, the city honors America’s heroes with the Red White and Blue Celebration. Starting at 7 p.m., vintage WWII era fighter planes perform incredible stunts over the harbor. Spectators can expect plenty of dips, dives, and aerial acrobatics as these historic planes whizz through the sky.
After the airshow, the Village Belles take the stage to perform lively renditions of popular songs from the Greatest Generation. When the music comes to an end, the sky will erupt with a breathtaking fireworks display. For even more entertainment, stick around for Just Add Fire, a one of a kind dance troupe that combines fire with tribal drums and electronic beats. The Red White and Blue Celebrations run from June through early September.
