One of the best things about Destin is its location.
Not only because it is located on the most beautiful beaches but also because right in the center of Pensacola and Panama City Beach. That means as you travel one hour in either direction from Destin there are twice the amount of fun family things to do.

You can enjoy all of the family fun adventures along the Emerald Coast without having to spend the whole day in the car.
Panama City Beach is known for drawing a younger crowd and has a bit of a wild side.
It also hosts a variety of family friendly activities to make a day of in PCB. Miracle Strip at Pier Park is an old fashion amusement park with a roller coaster, carousel and Ferris wheel. There is Shipwreck Island Water Park right down the road from that.
You can visit the animals at Zoo World or visit the upside down building Wonderworks. The good news is that Sea Oats Motel is not far so you can spend the day in Panama City Beach have some dinner and be home before bedtime.
Pensacola is the oldest of the Emerald Coast’s cities.
