After a day of fun in the sun, this is a great place to have a nice meal, do some shopping, or enjoy the various entertainment venues. It is a beautiful place!

This area is a must for your Destin trip. It’s touristy but worth it. Plenty of different shops and restaurants to choose from and a beautiful view.

This is a public place. You do have to enter the gate, but just tell the guard where you are going and he will point you in the right direction.

Since my husband and I read this forum constantly before our trip, asked questions and got good feedback, we feel we need to give back for any first timers going to Destin! First, we had a great time and will definitely go back. We did all the things we wanted to do...some we would do again some probably not. We stayed at the Inn at Crystal Beach and definitely recommend it. The view from our balcony was amazing...we saw dolphins each morning and a small sand shark the first morning. The...More

What are the best restaurants in the Village of Baytowne Wharf - for lunch and dinner? Also, is Destin/Sandestin somewhat dead this time of year? Or does it still get lively?

I like Acme Oyster House, same as the New Orleans restaurant, get the peacemaker poboy. The bistro when you first walk into the area, can't remember the name. Taste some wine at the wine shop, great people there. Beef O'Brady's for sports bar food across the street at the older Sandestin shops Also there are there's the new shopping and dining area on the east end of Sandestin with some very nice dining options.
