Florida, “the Sunshine State,” is one of the most popular tourist destinations to visit as summer temperatures get warmer. Destin, FL, may be more well-known for its Spring Break crowds, but the city hosts a variety of fun family activities. Here are a few of our favorites.
Destin Harbor Boardwalk
The Destin Harbor Boardwalk is one of the biggest attractions in Florida! On the boardwalk, you will find a wide variety of restaurants, clubs, bars and shops. The boardwalk is also host to the area’s dolphin cruises, boat tours and water sports, or you can just enjoy the amazing view from the pier! Seasonal festivals also find a home here as fireworks are choreographed with music for big celebrations. It is a great place for the entire family to relax while enjoying the shops, food and view.
Henderson Beach State Park
Florida is known for having some of the most beautiful beaches in the world and Henderson Beach State Park is definitely on the list. The pure white sands and the emerald green water provide a shoreline that is hard to beat! Here you can catch some rays, go for a swim, build a sand castle or explore the ¾-mile nature trail that passes flowers, plants, wildlife and more!
