There's Always Something To Do In Destin

Florida is all too often seen as the state where people go to either retire or go on holidays but the Sunshine State, and Destin as part of that, has a lot more to offer than you might expect. Destin itself can boast of having 6 movie theaters, 31 bars, 10 libraries and of course more than 30 golf courses too - the 200+ days of sun per year is enough to keep any golfer happy.

Being a city with a regular influx of tourists each year you would expect Destin to have quite a few restaurants and it actually has more than 500 in total. Now granted not all of those are going to carry a Michelin star or 3 but you can't deny that you won't have a variety of places to choose from in terms of dining during the morning, afternoon or evening.

If, like most people, you've always wanted to see or be near wild dolphins then you'll love the cruises offered by Southern Star. These take a slow trip around the waters off Destin so you can enjoy seeing the dolphins play in their natural environment.

What major city is complete without its own Zoo or Botanical Gardens and Destin also has both of these. A visit to the zoo means enjoying the botanical gardens at the same time as they're one and the same place - but do keep an eye out for Gorilla Island because it's one of the star attractions of the zoo itself.

While these all might sound a little bit touristy it's still good that you know Destin just has so much to offer any visitor to or resident of the city.
