5 of Our Favorite Souvenir Shops in Destin FL
Any time you go on vacation, you’re likely looking for some sort of memento to bring home to remember the time by. Whether it’s a photo, a key chain, a magnet or a shirt, there are thousands of items to choose from. And with a souvenir shop on every corner, it’s difficult to determine which ones are truly worth a visit.
So, to help our guests out a bit, we’ve compiled our five favorite souvenir shops in Destin FL:
1. Henderson Park Inn
Okay, we’re not one of the true souvenir shops in Destin FL, but we do offer a small retail space that may satisfy your keepsake needs. From specially designed Henderson Park Inn Comfort Color shirts and branded tumblers to local honey and Beach Walk dipping herbs, our retail selection gives our guests plenty of options for tokens of their trip to bring home.
2. The Henderson
Yes, again it’s on Henderson Beach Resort property, but especially with COVID-19, why leave the property when you have all you need for a perfect vacation here? Our sister property, The Henderson, which is right across the street from us, boasts a beautiful souvenir shop. And, it offers unique items that you won’t find in any of your standard souvenir shops in Destin FL. They offer art from local artists as well as a number of apparel items that you’re sure to love for years.
3. Beach Zone
If you can’t find what you’re looking for at our on-property options, Beach Zone is a quick drive (or 15-minute walk) from the inn. It’s closer to what you’re thinking of in terms of traditional souvenir shops in Destin FL, and it’s locally owned and operated. It carries brands like Salt Life, Oakley and Pelagic, and with each purchase of $25 or more, you can get a free box of taffy.
4. Alvin’s Island
Another traditional one of the souvenir shops in Destin FL, Alvin’s Island is also just a short drive (or 15-minute walk) from the inn. It has multiple locations in beach towns across the country, and it carries brands like Reef and O’Neill. Here you can purchase everything from pool toys to apparel, and these days they’re even offering masks for purchase.
5. Destin Commons
Ok, yes, this isn’t one of the many souvenir shops in Destin FL, but it’s probably some of the best shopping in the area. It has all your favorite retailers from Francesca’s and Lush to H&M and Belk, and with so many places to choose from, you might find a purchase there that can act as a great reminder for the wonderful memories made during your time staying with us.
