Destin, FL is the perfect destination for a couple’s escape. Located on the Emerald Coast, our enchanting city offers gorgeous scenery, spectacular year-round weather, and a variety of fun things to do. When you stay at the Henderson Park Inn, you will have the ideal home base for your retreat in Destin. Our adults only bed and breakfast was voted the most romantic hotel in America by both the users of About.com and TripAdvisor.com! To help you make the most of your next vacation, we have put together a guide to the top four things we love about Destin romantic getaways.
1. The Beach
Destin’s number one draw is definitely its breathtaking beaches. Situated on the Gulf of Mexico, Destin offers miles of pristine coastline covered with sugar white sand. The Gulf’s iconic emerald green water is great for swimming, as it boasts temperatures in the 70s and 80s for most of the year.
Guests at the Henderson Park Inn will enjoy exclusive access to our private white sand beach. We even provide beach chairs, towels, and umbrellas, so couples don’t have to worry about packing their own. What could be more romantic than soaking up the sun with your sweetheart?
2. Getting Out on the Water
No romantic escape on the Emerald Coast is complete without a cruise around Destin Harbor or the Gulf of Mexico. There are a number of boat tours in the area that offer stunning views of Destin’s natural beauty. For a truly unforgettable experience, we suggest watching the sunset from a sailboat. With no loud motor to spoil the mood, a sailboat provides the perfect peaceful atmosphere for couples to enjoy their time on the water.
3. Delicious Seafood
Known as “The World’s Luckiest Fishing Village”, Destin is famous for its fresh seafood. In fact, Destin is home to the largest fleet of fishing vessels in the state of Florida! No matter where you dine in Destin, you will find mouthwatering dishes that make excellent use of the Gulf’s signature fish and shellfish.
Couples staying at the Henderson Park Inn will definitely want to have at least one meal at our award-winning onsite restaurant, Beach Walk Cafe. Perfect for Destin romantic getaways, Beach Walk Cafe offers gourmet seafood entrees and unparalleled views of the Gulf of Mexico.
4. Relaxing at a Spa
Visiting a spa with your sweetheart is another one of our favorite activities for a couple’s escape in Destin. When you stay at the Henderson Park Inn, you will be steps away from Salamander Spa, which is located at our sister property, The Henderson. We recommend trying one of Salamander Spa’s popular Couples Massages, which include hot stones and aromatherapy blends. We can’t think of a more relaxing way to spend an afternoon with the one you love!
