A Little History
Destin is located on the gorgeous Emerald Coast.
Known now mainly for its green waters and white sandy beaches, Destin first originated as a small fishing village that has since boomed to a large popular tourist destination.
“The World’s Luckiest Fishing Village” got it’s name for a few reasons; the most well known reasons are because of the variety of fish that can be found along with the fact that access to deeper water is quite easy. The Luckiest Fishing Village is now home to one of the largest fishing fleets in the entire state. A fleet of that size along with some of the best fishing spots in the country provides the area with some of the most amazing and delicious seafood dishes. Destin’s seafood restaurants always use locally caught and fresh seafood.
Located on a peninsula that separates two major bodies of water, the Gulf of Mexico and the Choctawhatchee Bay, Destin is the principal city of Crestview and Fort Walton Beach. It’s located close to a few other major cities including Panama City, Santa Rosa Beach and Pensacola. Across the bay from Destin is Niceville which is connected by one road. There is a lot going on here with so much to explore. When you visit Destin, it’s hard to go a day without exploring something new.
The incredible views of Destin are what draw so many visitors each year. It is estimated that 80% of the Emerald Coast’s visitors will come to Destin. Most of them will come to see the world famous, sugar white sand that originated from the Appalachian Mountains.
