How to Make the Most of a Weekend Escape at Our Gulf Front Hotel in Destin
When it comes to vacation days, of course more is better. However, sometimes a weekend escape is the only getaway that fits into your schedule. Fortunately, it is still possible to have a relaxing and romantic time in Destin, Florida when you only have a few days in the area. To help you make the most of your visit, the Henderson Park Inn has put together a few tips for a weekend stay at our Gulf front hotel in Destin.
Take Advantage of Three Day Weekends
If you’re running low on vacation days, try to plan your getaway for a three day weekend. Having an extra day on your trip can make a huge difference, especially if you will be traveling from a distance. Here are the holidays that result in long weekends in the United States:
- Martin Luther King, Jr. Day – Third Monday of January
- Presidents Day – Third Monday of February
- Memorial Day – Final Monday of May
- Independence Day – July 4
- Labor Day – First Monday in September
- Columbus Day – Second Monday in October
- Veterans Day – November 11
Have Meals at the Henderson Park Inn
Dining out can be a time consuming process, so we suggest eating all of your meals at the Henderson Park Inn. We provide our guests with a gourmet breakfast buffet with made to order eggs, omelets, and Belgian waffles. For lunch, you can pick up a complimentary picnic-style salad or sandwich to enjoy on the beach or in your room. When dinner comes around, you can stroll over to our onsite restaurant, the Beach Walk Cafe. Offering locally caught seafood and a variety of French and Italian inspired dishes, the Cafe is perfect for a convenient and satisfying meal.
Don’t Try to Do It All
There is so much to see and do on the Emerald Coast that it can be tempting to try to do it all during your vacation. When you are only in town for a few days, however, you’re going to have to pick and choose which activities and attractions are a priority. Try to come up with 3 or 4 things that you absolutely don’t want to miss during your weekend escape at our Gulf front hotel in Destin.
While it is important to get out and explore the city during your trip, you’re going to want to spend plenty of time at the hotel. The whole point of taking a vacation is to relax, and you can’t properly do that if you’re running around the whole weekend! Instead, build in some time to sit on the beach, take a scenic bike ride, or lounge around in your suite. Every evening at sunset, we offer guests a complimentary happy hour, so you and your sweetheart can kick back with some cocktails before dinner. For even more relaxation, book one of our rooms with a whirlpool tub, a fireplace, or a private balcony.
