Looking forward to the sweet smell of Summer in the air? The sea air, sunscreen, and food grilling? That sums up the smell of Destin during the Summer months. It is a smell and feeling we all long for. But Destin is so much more than Summer ambiance and sunshine. Check out these four other reasons you should visit Destin this Summer.
1. The Iconic Beaches
Thanks to the sugar-white sands and emerald waters, our beaches have become world-famous. The sand in Destin feels soft, powdery, and is often compared to fine sugar. It feels amazing between the toes and is so beautiful to look at! The waters are emerald green and so clear that you can see deep into the water. The beaches are a must-see and a must-visit.
2. Worlds Luckiest Fishing Village
Did you know that Destin is known as the “World’s Luckiest Fishing Village”?
“Destin boasts the widest variety of fish species in the area, direct access to the Gulf of Mexico, and the nation’s largest commercial fishing fleet.
A look at any nautical map will show you that Destin’s quick and easy access to the deepest depths of the Gulf sets it apart from nearby ports. Because various species of fish live at different depths, anglers can quickly reach all depths of fishable water featuring 20 types of edible game fish.” DestinFWB
Take a deep-sea fishing charter out, or spend the day fishing off of a pier.
