6 Great Ways to Save Money on Your Destin Vacation
Taking a vacation in Destin, Florida doesn’t have to break the bank, especially when you stay at the Henderson Park Inn! Our adults only hotel was recently honored with the Conde Nast Johansens Award for Best Luxury Value, because we provide a variety of complimentary amenities that help our guests save money. Read on to learn about six ways you can save during your Destin vacation at the Henderson Park Inn.
1. Take Our Free Shuttle from the Airport
If you will be flying into Destin-Fort Walton Beach Airport, be sure to take advantage of our free shuttle to and from the airport. Getting a free ride definitely beats paying $35 – 60 for an Uber or a taxi! Please note that our shuttle service is only available from March – October.
2. Have Breakfast and Lunch at the Inn
Eating out is typically one of the biggest vacation expenses. When you stay at the Henderson Park Inn, however, you can enjoy complimentary breakfast and lunch right at our hotel. Our gourmet breakfast buffet features all of your favorite dishes, including made-to-order eggs/omelets, made-to-order waffles, bacon, ham, sausage, shrimp and grits, grillades, biscuits and gravy, Bloody Marys, and even more mouthwatering food.
For lunch, the Henderson Park Inn provides delicious picnic-style sandwiches and salads from the HoneyBaked Ham Company that guests can savor in the sunshine or in their rooms. Couples can easily save $50 each day by dining at our hotel for two meals.
3. Enjoy Our Private Beach and Swimming Pools
Rather than paying for parking and admission to one of Destin’s beaches, guests at the Henderson Park Inn can relax at our very own private beach. Located right on the Gulf of Mexico, our gorgeous beach features the same sugar white sand you can find next door at Henderson Beach State Park. We provide all of our guests with complimentary beach chairs, umbrellas, and towels, so you don’t have to worry about bringing your own or picking them up in town. Guests at our inn also enjoy free admission to the adults only pool, zero entry family pool, lazy river, and exercise facility at our nearby sister property, The Henderson.
4. Use Our Free Attraction Tickets
Two of the most popular attractions in Destin, FL offer free tickets to guests at the Henderson Park Inn. When you vacation with us, you’ll receive one complimentary adult ticket for the Sea Blaster Dolphin Cruise and one ticket for the Gulf Coast Escape Room for each night of your stay. If you use both tickets, you’ll save more than $40 on Destin vacation activities! For all the details, check out our Free Activities page.
5. Borrow Our Bikes and Paddle Boards
Instead of renting a bike in town, guests at the Henderson Park Inn can borrow our bicycles, helmets, and chain locks free of charge. From our very own Scenic Highway 98 to the Timpoochee Trail, there are numerous opportunities for bike riding in Destin. The Henderson Park Inn also offers great paddle boards that guests can borrow and take to Crab Island or another spot on the Gulf.
6. Attend Complimentary Cooking Classes
Every Wednesday, our very own Chef Greg Dupas leads a free cooking class for guests at the Henderson Park Inn. If you’ve always wanted to learn how to make Gulf Coast favorites like crab cakes or crawfish etouffee, you’ll love this class!
