Flights to Destin

We are looking at visting Destin Fl. some time next spring. Trying to find flights to Destin or surrounding air ports from Minnesota. What is the easiest way to get from MN to Destin?

The closest airport is Fort Walton Beach's Northwest Florida Regional Airport (code is "VPS" for Valparaiso).

Other options that are further away include Pensacola (PNS) or Northwest Florida Beaches Airport in Panama City Beach (ECP).

When we lived in Wisconsin, we typically flew Delta to VPS. Nice small airport on Eglin Air Force Base leased space with easy car rental options. It's a short drive to the 5-mile long Mid Bay Bridge which connects Niceville to Destin.

We fly from MN too. MSP -VPS with a change in Atlanta. No direct flight from here. Sometimes we fly as far Atlanta and drive from there if the fares are too high

Not sure these are apples-to-apples numbers, but Southwest shows as low as $137-$162 round trip, depending on date; they fly to PNS and ECP, change in BNA.

Based on Travelocity's website, United, American and Delta fly to all three with basic economy fares around $330 (PNS), $360 (VPS) and $345 (ECP), all with changes in their hubs.
