Here are 4 BIG reasons you should consider Destin as your next vacation Destination:
- A Destin Florida Vacation provides you with unlimited access to some of the most beautiful and best beaches in the world. The Florida Panhandle is commonly known as the Emerald coast because of the unique quartz crystals that make up the beach sand and give the water its spectacular emerald color. The result? Powdery white clean and soft sand makes for wonderful beaches and the warm, beautiful, clear shimmering water sparkles like emeralds.
- Destin is really easy and affordable to get to. Destin is within approximately 8 hr. driving distance from several major landlocked cities like Nashville, Memphis, and Chattanooga. It is also only 4-6 hours from New Orleans, Birmingham, and Atlanta. If you want just a short getaway you can get there in 2-3 hours from Montgomery, Mobile, and Tallahassee. This makes for very cost effective and doable driving when you want to pack the whole family into the minivan or SUV and head to the beach for some family fun. Air travel to Destin is also affordable and very easy. You have your choice of 3 Major airports to fly into when travelling to Destin, all within about an hour of Destin proper. If you are considering flying in privately there is also a beautiful municipal airport conveniently located in downtown Destin, which has recently added direct air service from New Orleans and Memphis at VERY reasonable prices.
