The Harbor has been somewhat of a go-to place when it comes to getting your weekend started. In the summer, it's a bit crazy with the firework traffic on Thursday's, and just in general with the tourists, but it's nothing that can't be handled. Plenty of restaurants (you pay for the view though, trust me) and bars to hop around... More

The new Margaritaville restaurant is open. There are several other restaurants and shops. You can also catch a dolphin watching cruise here. The kite store is especially nice.

We visited during the Destin Rodeo. Lots of fun shopping, sights, and food. Fun just to walk around and people watch. Great place to watch the sunset. We also visited the festivities going on with the Fishing Rodeo which was a fun experience.

It's a fun place to walk around with some shops, restaurants and other activities going on. Many of the excursions leave from this harbor. You can watch as they unload the fish from the boats and clean them.

The Destin Harbor is one of our go-to places to take visitors, especially prior to a sunset dolphin cruise. It is fun to walk along the boardwalk, see all the fishing boats come in, see the catch hanging and glistening in the sun. Lots to see and do, good food for snacks and meals, great photographic material.

This is a must with a lot of things to do. A bunch of great places to eat, shop and things for the kids. The parking can be a nightmare at different times but overall a great place to hang out and have fun.

Beautiful to walk and look at the boats at night time. We had the best time just walking and talking. Imagine this is a busy spot in the summer peak but it was great this time of year.
