April Events Happening in Destin

Spring Break was in full swing during the month of March– but the fun continues as we navigate through April. During the month of April, beach weather starts making an impact. Temperatures average in the mid 70’s to low 80’s– perfect weather for hanging on the beach! Not to mention, the water starts warming up. April also happens to be a transition period between Spring Breakers and the peak summer season, meaning fewer crowds before the summer visitors arrive! If that wasn’t convincing enough, April happens to be home to some of the most exciting events of the year! Check them out below.
