3 Tips for a Memorable Stay at Our Hotel on the Beach in Destin FL
A romantic vacation in Destin, Florida is something that you’ll want to remember forever. When you stay at the Henderson Park Inn, it’s easy to create memories that will last a lifetime. Here are a few tips to ensure that you have a memorable getaway at our hotel on the beach in Destin FL.
1. Be Primed for Special Moments
We are more likely to remember moments that we have designated as “special” in our minds. For instance, you probably can’t remember what you had for lunch a few months ago, but you can recall with perfect clarity what you had for your birthday dinner last year. The difference, of course, is that you expected your birthday meal to be something special, and therefore you made an extra effort to remember it.
While your entire vacation at the Henderson Park Inn is sure to be special, here are a few big moments that you can mentally prepare to remember:
- Your arrival at the Inn.
- The first time you open the door to your suite.
- Sharing complimentary cocktails as the sun sets on the beach.
- Walking along the shoreline with your sweetheart at night.
- Surprising your significant other with a bottle of champagne or sparkling wine with our Special Occasion Package.
- Waking up and looking out at the Gulf of Mexico from your suite’s balcony.
2. Savor Your Meals
Taste and smell are some of the most powerful components of a memory. Virtually all of us have had the experience where an unexpected scent suddenly whisks us back to a happy memory from years ago. When you stay at our hotel on the beach in Destin FL, you will have many opportunities to savor flavors and fragrances and commit them to your memory.
At breakfast, when you eat your omelette or Belgian Waffle, try not to wolf it down in a few gulps. Instead, take each bite slowly, giving yourself time to really enjoy the taste of your dish. Delicious food isn’t meant to be consumed in a hurry; it should be appreciated at a leisurely pace.
Focusing on your food can also help you remember other elements of your vacation. For instance, if you recall the mouthwatering picnic lunch you had on the beach, you will probably also remember the beautiful scenery and how you felt at that moment. Likewise, a dinner date at our onsite restaurant, the Beach Walk Cafe, will delight all of your senses, combining Italian and French inspired cuisine with breathtaking views of the Gulf Coast.
3. Take Lots of Pictures
Of course, one of the very best ways to solidify your memories is to take lots of photos. Smartphone cameras are very good these days, but it may be worth it to splurge on a high end digital camera or even a professional grade DSLR. Regardless of what type of camera you decide to use, be sure to document all of the big moments on your trip. Our staff is always happy to take a photo with your camera, so you should never have a problem getting a picture with the two of you in it. We do recommend waiting until after your vacation to share the photos on social media, so you don’t waste any of your precious time on Facebook when you could be spending it making more memories!
