Destin Christmas Lights

Where Do You Go to See Christmas Lights around Destin?

We have some answers!

As we join our friends celebrating The Festival of Lights this week, we couldn’t help but notice all of the many beautiful light displays in and around Sea Oats in Destin!

While just touring around the Emerald Coast this time of year provides plenty of opportunities to see twinkling lights in the palms, there are a few places to head if you are really in the mood to see some glittering lights in action!

12 Nights of Lights in the Events Plaza at Baytowne Wharf at Sandestin at 6, 7 and 8 pm every Friday and Saturday in December. Enjoy this festive light show set to your favorite holiday music every Friday for the holiday editions of the Wednesday Night Concert Series.
