5 Reasons We Love Romantic Getaways in Destin Florida in the Spring
Spring is one of the very best times to visit Destin, Florida with your sweetheart! When winter winds down, the Emerald Coast comes alive again with warmer weather and a variety of seasonal events. The Henderson Park Inn has put together five of the reasons we love romantic getaways in Destin Florida in the spring.
1. Spectacular Climate
The spring climate in Destin is just about perfect. During the day, the temperature is typically in the mid-70s or 80s. The weather is ideal for swimming, as the water temperature is also in the 70s. Guests at the Henderson Park Inn will enjoy access to our private white sand beach, so couples can spend plenty of time soaking up the sun and strolling along the shoreline.
2. Fewer Crowds
The summer months are peak season in Destin, so visiting in the spring is a great way to beat the crowds. Couples will also enjoy cheaper hotel rates when they come to the Emerald Coast before summer vacation season begins. With fewer people in the area, you can expect shorter wait times at restaurants, less traffic, and plenty of space on the beach.
3. Sandestin Wine Festival
The Sandestin Wine Festival is one of the most popular events near Destin Florida in the spring. Whether you’re an amateur sommelier or you can’t tell the difference between a Cabernet and a Merlot, you will love sampling the huge variety of wines available at this four day event. As you make your way through The Village of Baytowne Wharf, be sure to stop at the festival’s food tents to pair your wine with some delicious appetizers and local seafood. Other highlights of the festival that guests can sign up for include wine seminars, wine dinners, a lunch cruise, and Sunday brunch on the bay.
4. ArtsQuest Fine Arts & Music Festival
The ArtsQuest Fine Arts & Music Festival is another excellent spring event on the Emerald Coast. Held in May at the Grand Boulevard in Sandestin, this three day festival is a juried fine arts show with over 125 artists. Guests can expect to see works in all kinds of mediums, including watercolor, sculpture, photography, jewellery, ceramics, and many more. In addition to all of the great art, the festival also features excellent live music, dance performances, artist demos, and more entertainment. A variety of food and beverages will be available for purchase, including sandwiches, wraps, salads, alcohol, soda, and other selections.
5. Dining Al Fresco
One of our favorite parts of a romantic spring vacation is eating outdoors. At lunchtime, the Henderson Park Inn provides complimentary picnic-style sandwiches and salads that guests can eat right on the beach. For dinner, couples can head over to our onsite restaurant, The Beach Walk Cafe, to enjoy a delicious meal while taking in scenic views of the Gulf of Mexico from the veranda. If you want to get even closer to the beautiful scenery, reserve our Toes in the Sand package to dine right beside the water.
