Destin is a beautiful beach town known as the Luckiest Fishing Village on Earth.
Spend time on our incredibly white sandy beaches, visit one of several state parks on the area, or spend some time shopping and eating dinner of our world famous seafood!
There is always so much to do on the gorgeous Emerald Coast, no matter the time of year, that you and your family may not know where to start first! Here at the beautiful Sea Oats Motel in sunny Destin Florida, the original beachside getaway on the northern Gulf, we have you covered on what to check out first, after you’ve checked into your rooms.
Begin your day with a visit to the Destin History and Fishing Museum. Visitors will see antique fishing equipment, prized fish caught in the local waters, and more. Learn about what Destin was like before electricity and see the oldest seine fishing boat still in existence!
Next, take an early afternoon dolphin cruise with Olin Marler’s charter cruises. Your guided narrated tour will teach your family a little bit about the Destin Harbor and with luck, your family will get to see some of the many dolphins that call our waters home. Dolphin and Fishing cruises run throughout the day.
When you’ve had enough of the beach, be sure to check out Big Kahunas Water Park, voted in the Top Five nationwide by the Travel Channel. Featuring over 40 rides, from intense 75 degree slides to an unrivaled lazy river, there is something here for every member of the family! When you are done planning in the water, head over to Adventure Park to play a round of mini golf or race go karts.
