5 Things to Do in Destin Florida in Summer
It’s almost summertime! With summer comes incredible beach vacations, and if you’re in the process of planning your relaxing beach getaway, we have a few suggestions on what to add to your itinerary this summer.
Here are five things to do in Destin in summer:
1. Relax on the Beach
Ok, this one is a little obvious, but if you’re in Destin, you need to spend some time on the beach. We have some of the most beautiful powder white sand in the world, and our water is a stunning unique shade of green, which is why we’re referred to as the Emerald Coast. Now, if relaxing on the beach isn’t your preference, you can also enjoy the beach by pulling out a kayak or paddle board and getting out on the water. Regardless, enjoying all the beach offers is one of the best things to do in Destin Florida in summer.
2. Dine at a Beachfront Restaurant
Destin boasts a number of incredible eateries, some of which have stunning views of the Gulf. Henderson Park Inn’s in-house restaurant happens to be one of those, so of course, we absolutely suggest taking advantage of the unique atmosphere only Beach Walk can offer. With Chef Daniel Peters at the helm, Beach Walk also offers some of the most delicious food in Destin, so you won’t want to miss out on dining here during your summertime stay in the area.
3. Visit Big Kahuna’s
If you get a little tired of our beautiful beaches, there are still plenty of other things to do in Destin Florida in summer. You can always enjoy the beautiful weather at Big Kahuna’s, Destin’s water and adventure park. With more than 40 different water attractions and multiple thrill rides, it’s a fun way to enjoy the summer in Destin without the sand.
4. Shop at an Outdoor Mall
With Destin Commons and Silver Sands Premium Outlets just moments from Henderson Park Inn, taking a day to snag a few great deals on your favorite clothing brands. From J. Crew to Lush, both of these outdoor malls feature a variety of the United States’ most popular stores.
5. Go Fishing
Destin is home to the largest charter fishing fleet in the country, and it’s known as the luckiest fishing village in the world. Out of all of the things to do in Destin Florida in summer, hopping on a local fisherman’s boat and going out for a day of fishing is an experience that truly represents the culture of the area.
