It depends on what you want...they do not have the city feeling like Destin area. Very few chain restaurants and shopping. You have to travel for 20 min. to get to the closest Walmart. It is very laid back. I think the water in Destin is much prettier. It is hard to predict where the seeweed will appear.

True that OB is not as citified as Destin, which also means it isn't as crowded and not as much traffic. Beautiful (uncrowded) beaches, nice restaurants, plenty of things to do make it a great are for families and singles alike. Check out this site:
