8 Things to Do in Destin for Adults as Told by Our Housekeeping Staff
Being an adults-only hotel, we’re often asked to suggest things to do in Destin for adults. Thankfully, coming up with answers for our guests is pretty easy, as Destin boasts activities for just about anyone.
This time, we asked our incredible housekeeping staff to share some of their favorites:
Yoselin: Shop at Silver Sands Premium Outlets
Home to 110 designer and name-brand outlet stores, Silver Sands Premium Outlets offer visitors a variety of shopping options from apparel to housewares, and it’s only a quick drive from Henderson Park Inn.
Jennie: Catch a Concert at Club LA
Just up the street, one might even say walking distance from the Inn, rests Club LA, a small music venue and bar. The venue features everything from big-named bands like Theory of a Deadman, Trapt and Buckcherry to local talent. And with an age limit to who can get in, it’s definitely one of the more unique things to do in Destin for adults.
German & Maylee: Relax on the Beach
When you’re in Destin, you need to take some time to enjoy the reason we’re all here. Yes, it may be an obvious option, but at Henderson Park Inn, we give our guests access to a private and secluded adults-only beach, making it a truly relaxing experience.
Justine: Eat Fresh Seafood at Beach Walk Café
Even if you’re not a foodie, dining on the incredible food of Beach Walk Café is absolutely one of the best things to do in Destin for adults. This spectacular restaurant remains Destin’s only fine dining directly on the Emerald Coast’s beautiful beaches. Best part? It’s adults only, ensuring you have a serene evening dining on delectable dishes.
Amy: Enjoy a Beachside Bonfire
There’s nothing quite like gathering with friends around a bonfire while listening to waves lap upon the shore. At our Inn, we have two fire pits right along the beach for guests to enjoy.
Adriana: Shop at Destin Commons
With more than 95 different stores and restaurants, Destin Commons is one of Destin’s favorite gathering places, and when it comes to things to do in Destin for adults, this outdoor mall has a lot more to offer than great deals and tasty food. It also features a mural art walk and exciting seasonal events.
Leomar: Visit the Gulfarium
Just under eight miles from Henderson Park Inn is the Emerald Coast’s take on an aquarium. The Gulfarium is a marine adventure park dedicated to educating the public on respecting and preserving the wildlife that call our area home. It’s a perfect activity for anyone hoping to spend the day enjoying our area’s beautiful weather alongside a stunning beach view and learning about our friends in the Gulf.
Ibe: Chat with the Locals
There are plenty of things to do in Destin for adults, but if you want to really have a chance to understand our area, take some time to get to know the people that built this thriving beach community. From the boat captains on the harbor to our front desk staff, you’ll really learn about the culture of the area by getting to know the people.
We’ve said it before, but Destin really is a place that offers something for everyone, and our staff is always happy to help match you to an activity perfectly suited to your tastes.
