We've booked a lake cabin at a resort right here in lovely northern MN, land of 10,000 lakes! lol
Since we had no condos, or hotels already booked in Destin, we just decided to make it another time. Just way too far to drive.
I know we would have had a wonderful time had we gone even if it rains. We've gone many places and always get rain of course. It's just that the main reason we were coming to Destin was for the "great beaches". If it continues to rain, and then you get ugly runoff that turns your ocean water brown as I've read, well, just seemed to us that we'll go when a tropical storm just hasn't passed through! lol
Thank you kind people for your suggestions. I'm still going to keep reading this travel board to keep condo suggestions and reviews handy. Maybe next summer we'll get down there. If not, soon! :) MN is getting the 90 degree weather back this week so we're thrilled to have "lake weather" before school starts. One last blast!
