Hope to travel to Destin this summer (early June)
with two kids (age 8 and 12), any recommendations on where to stay, eat, activities, etc.
We stayed at the new Wingate Inn last year. It is off the beach, so it's affordable, and drove to the beach about 5 minutes away. Parked at Pompano Joe's restaurant and spent the whole day there. Pompano Joe's is nice for lunch, too. On the east side of the restaurant there were chairs and umbrella's we used for free, both days of our stay.
Also included with most condos is this great beach. Lots of sand and water. I don't know about your kids, but my nephews in that age range have the most fun when they are just free to play.
Hey RS I love your screen name!
Could you give us a little more info?
Are you driving or flying?
I see you are planning on an early June vacation but if you could wait until the middle of August the rates really drop at that time.
Would you consider close to Destin, not in Destin?
I haven't been myself but lots of people like
Destin West with it's lazy river for the kids.
we are headed to destin in june as well. we have no kids and have never been to destin. would love to stay on the beach but would be ok with across from it or on the bay if the price is right. need suggestions for best place to stay in Destin without spending a fortune that weekend. please help! also, if anyone knows of a good boat/company for a deep see fishing excursion, we would love that as well! Look forward to hearing from you! Beachbound.
